Have you been waking up in strange places with even stranger people? Are you starting to question if it’s normal that you can’t get through the day without blacking out? Is there a beer bong surgically attached to your face? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you might be a classic alcoholic. Unsure if you’re ready to trade in frat parties for AA meetings. Check out this infographic produced by Medical Insurance called The Truth About Alcoholism to figure it out.

you have never really lived or loved if you believe no sane person would want relief from life by turning off the control for a night.Also who is truely sane in a world like this?
Now with that being said pretty much everything else is spot on.
i have heard people say the drunks are the people who care too much and that they are the people who cant let go off some memory.Some say they secretly hate themselves and drink to escape their past which they can never outrun.
Now I dont believe in telling people they can never do something again for the rest of their lifes because they will fail. But i do believe in balance and everything in moderation.

I'm not sure if people know but alcohol blocks protein synthesis. Protien is amino acids is DNA is YOU...
It also kills your B vitamins and the rest of them. There is such a thing as alcohol induced anemia as well, which means your red blood cells don't carry as much oxygen...
As I age I feel these things more and more.
And I age quicker with alcohol in the amounts I consume.
And I'm honest because I care. Im also honest because my ego needs no feeding. Im also honest because I have empathy. And I'm honest because truth rules haha.
