The fact you "disagree" with it shows you haven't the faintest clue about alcoholism and how it affects people and those around them, instead
trivialising it as "having a beer with mates".
This is typal of ATS elitism.
You disagree with me so you I be ignorant.
I am ignorant of alcoholism because I disagree with you.
Again cannot help but notice your desire to nitpick at innocent comments in your quest to appear to be the smart guy and take the moral high ground is
Not that its any of your business, but I have been to at least 5 funeral of people close to me who all died due to their battle with the bottle, in my
job i regularly work with people who have a alcohol dependants or some other form of substance missuse and I am actively involved in caring for these
people and at times getting them specialised care.
So how dare you accuse me of being ignorant to the plight that alcoholism costs society!
Let me tell you a story, and I want you to know and understand this is not just some BS to further my argument rather this is me telling you like it
is. I have actually sat and held the hand of a man who was a total stranger to me for a whole night as he told me how alcohol had destroyed his life,
but he told me he had one last wish, knowing he was going to die, that i sit with him as he has a bottle of Miller. He got about half way through
bottle and died as I held his hand.
So dont sit and judge on me or anyone else, you don't know me, you don't even know that it was the drink that killed Kennedy.
Honestly it pisses me off that you have baited me into a a silly and off-topic debate on "is it right to have a drink at a alcoholics funeral" when
really what i want to be doing is discussing the life and career of Charles Kennedy.
So with that said would you please stop judging others who disagree with you as being some how ignorant and accept that some people might have a
different view from your own. It does not make me right or your wrong or vice versa rather it is a difference in opinion, accept it, if you can't then
I don't think adult debate and discussion is the place for you.
