I think it is far more destructive than....
Note above is a summarised quote from Iamschist
On the one hand I hate the nanny state telling me that I should not do this, that and the other. Soon, I will be warned against wearing shoes in case
the laces throttle me.
On the other hand, I am an adult. I have a choice. I know alcohol can mess me up, so I take a judgement to drink in moderation (mostly). I know
smoking is dangerous to me and others, so I gave up years ago. I knows snorting coke may give short-term benefits, but ultimately can really screw
you, so I don't do that either, nor indulge in any drugs because I have concluded if that’s the only way to get a buzz, then you are sad.
If people drink to excess and drown their liver, then that's their funeral. They are adults and if they cannot think things through, then why should
I suffer because of their selfishness?
I am in no way diminishing alcoholism and the terrible burden of such (and I have a family member who has a drink problem), nor drug addiction, or
addiction to chocolate for that matter. I am simply saying that too many people are trying to tell me other obvious. Chill out.
