I think this really falls into the category of the individual learning discipline. For example, when the cardiovascular benefits of wine are
restricted to MODERATE CONSUMPTION, many people don't hear that latter part of the statement - they just delude themselves into thinking their
already troublesome behaviour is good for them. But hell, anything can be destructive in excess. You can actually kill yourself by drinking too much
water, or consuming a truckload of bananas. Anything in consumed in excess can be harmful, because you are forcing your body to process something, and
our organs have limitations.
As a whole, it's just helpful, much as a previous poster stated, to LISTEN to you body. Did you just wake up from a night of getting wasted with your
friends? Go for a run, drink some water, take a wheatgrass juice shot (GOD I love that stuff), and lay off the toxins for a while. Similarly, there
are instances when you're so god damned stressed from work, life, debating on forum sites (
) that it's good to knock a couple back after work
with some friends.
And if you're planning on quitting the drink, and you have a long history of boozing, please, take a note from Amy Winehouse - DO NOT QUIT COLD
TURKEY! Find yourself a hospital, or use your own discipline to slowly reduce your consumption to nil. Quitting cold turkey, for some extreme cases,
can actually kill you.
Booze is just like food or anything else - just be smart about it.
