Who will lead fight against alcohol?

Mar. 20, 2006 12:00 AM

Kudos to Richard Cohen for his column Friday, "One drink too many."

It's about time somebody highlighted this problem. Alcohol is as much a drug as pharmaceuticals and tobacco.

Now, who will lead us in going after the alcoholic-beverage industry the way we went after the tobacco cartel? Or is that off limits?

New Years' Resolutions Can Be Beneficial

By Thomas Keyes
Feb. 27, 2005

I know it may seem childish to make New Years? resolutions, as if there
were something magical about that day, when, if we used a different
calendar, what we call New Year?s Day would just be another prosaic,
quotidian day.

So far I?ve kept my New Years? resolutions not only for year 2006, but
also those I made in 1983 and 1987, both of which have been exceedingly
beneficial, however artificial the routine and ritual of resolving.

In 1983, I resolved to stop drinking alcoholic beverages of all kinds,
and to this day I have lived up to it. Previously, I had made the same
resolution several times, but each time, I did it with the intention of
staying sober only until the holidays. So I would refrain from liquor
from January 1 till Thanksgiving, and complimenting myself on my
resolve, I would drink from Thanksgiving till January 1 of the
following year. But this was not enough. Causing myself much shame
because of some of the foolish things I did when I was drunk, and even
getting into legal difficulties, whose nature I?d just as soon not
mention, I eventually realized that absolute abstention was the only
way for me. So in 1983 I made an unconditional resolution: not a drop
of liquor, wine or beer ever again. No longer was it a matter of
staying sober for 11 months out of 12; it was for good. And so far I?ve
been lucky enough not to slip in these 23 years. I would not say that I
am resisting temptation any longer though, for rarely does the thought
even cross my mind nowadays.

Last August, I started doing regular exercises, which is something that
I?ve been very neglectful about over the years, particularly since I
did lots of walking and bicycling, which I figured was enough. Now,
instead, since my walking and cycling have become minimal, I do a
variety of exercises that require about an hour and fifteen minutes a
day, but I am always just a little disinclined to get going. Another
matter is that I haven?t witnessed a tremendous amount of improvement.
But I want to try it throughout the year before I judge on whether it
is worth the trouble. So that was my resolution this year. So far so
good. Since I actually started in August, I have 6 months in already.
One thing is certain, and that is that exercise won't do me any harm.

Attack drinking
Jerome C. Malon
Published January 26, 2006

  Chicago -- Now that we have restricted smoking, it's time to attack
alcohol. Because individuals drink too much, they can cause death and
injuries to innocent people, and have a number of related sickness
problems that cost taxpayers and insurance companies millions of
dollars, will local governments address this problem and ban alcohol
next?
 
 
The new legislation that is due to begin  next year (I think), is to protect
those people who undoubtedly would have their  health damaged by passively
smoking other peoples tobacco products.<

I  don't have a problem with that..just that there are many more things
should be  done safeguarding the air we breathe (other than blaming smokers) and
things in  general done to those through no fault of their own but by others
"wee pleasures  in life" KWIM?
Like stricter laws on factory and car emissions etc...a no  dumping
whatsoever policy of harmful chemicals into our waters etc..a total ban  on any
alcohol
in your system and none of this one or two drinks crap is OK  ...ah well..am
off to book a flight to Utopia..anyone coming along?  LOL

Alcohol has been attributed to so many murders, drunken drivers killing  our

In summary, the Federal Government should not worry so much on how we  treat

For those of us who went to college (and actually did some  studying), we
learned that there has never once been a death related  to the use of marijuana
alone.  We also learned, that two of  the three most dangerous drugs to the
human body are alcohol and  nicotine.  Where does marijuana stand on that list? 
It is  pretty close to the bottom.
Our society has let itself become ignorant, and  judgemental.  Why do we
condone and accept alcohol and  nicotine as a "lifestyle", something cool and
glamorous?  Why  does our society continue to fall for this insane propaganda?  
The answer is two fold....money and big corporations.
Open your eyes people.  If we want to ban the use of  marijuana, then should
we not take the next step and ban the use of  alcohol and nicotine?  Many of
you are mislead, and therefore  assume mislead opinions.    
No, I am not saying that we should aslo condone the use of other  drugs that
are medically proven to cause permanent, and long term  damage to our bodies
(heroin, cocaine, LSD).  What I am saying  is our society needs to wake up, and
educate itself with the facts,  not what our "trustworty" government and
media tell us.
If we are to classify those who smoke marijuana as loosers,  should we not
put those who drink and smoke cigaretes into the same  category?  Why do we
classify those who smoke marijuana as  criminals, when we classify alcoholics as
people who have a  disease?  
Shame on the government!  Shame on those of you who judge  others, and have
no idea what you are talking about!  Shame on  you for not thinking for
yourself!  
Wake up people!

Don't believe it for a second. Our  government has been profitting off drug
trafficking  longer than I've been alive. It's big business. 60  Minutes
focused on the subject at their inception. Sad  our politicians can see fit to allow
alcohol (which has  no medicinal properties) and would deny someone 
terminally ill the right to comfort. A great many of our  drugs have a plant base but
marijuana has been singled  out. It has been taboo. Is it because it might
drive the  street value down and attack profits if a ban was  lifted? That would
be my guess. Fact is alcohol kills  every day.

Having already been banned from restarants, public buildings, and even  some
entire cities (Check out Boulder, Colorado's recent bans), and some  companies
requiring their employees to be smoke free even away from work,  additional
legislation not only seems pointless, but spiteful.  What  strikes me as
incongrous is that these same establishments and cities  welcome tobacco products
for the sales they represent.  Know of any  cities where the sale of cigarettes
is banned?  Seen any business  licenses for smoke shops denied lately? I
strongly doubt it.
If they are so concerned about our health and  the health of others, why
don't they target alcohol?  Many more  people die every year at the hands of drunk
drivers, intoxicated brawlers,  and others who can't or won't control their
habit.  I know of no bans  of alcohol in any hotels or motels.  I haven't heard
of any employers  including mandatory testing for any residual alcohol as a
condition  for employment.  And talk about costs!  Any idea how much a  month
long alcoholism treatment program, that will likely fail,  costs?  Compared to
tobacco, alcohol prohibition should be  supported and immediately instituted
WORLD WIDE.
The reason for the difference?   Simple, many more politicians drink today
than smoke.  Many  more of their constituents do also.  In other words, smokers
are a  persecuted minority.  (The only minority actively persecuted by and 
with the full support of all levels of government)  It is time to lay  off.
On a historical  note, the government used to encourage citizens to take up
the  habit.  Oftentimes, this was subtle.  I distinctly remember, for  example,
when I was in boot camp the drill instructor calling out "Light  em, if you
got em" as a way to begin a break.  Those who didn't smoke  continued with
whatever was assigned, without break.  True, this was  over 30 years ago. It
stills grandly illustrates one method the feds used  to promote tobacco use.  The
Surgeon General at one point supported  the use of chew as an alternative to
smoking.  Anything to  keep the tax dollars rolling in.

Why don't they get on the alcohol drinkers who can drink at arenas, 
colliseums, entertainment centers, ball parks, etc., act stupid, get loud,  obnoxious,
rude especially around kids, breathe smells raunchy, then they  leave these
places and drive home or next place to drink.  Let's see,  it takes only
seconds to get in a vehicle after drinking and kill  someone.  It all comes down to
money, yes, the good ole greedy  Mr. Grinch.  See those places don't sell
cigarettes, so they'd don't  make any money, but they do on alcohol.  Get the
picture?  
Legislators in NJ need to pass a ban alcohol from  all public places.  NOW of

Smoking has been taken off of tv and out of ads for years  now. Smokers are
taxed beyond the limits of anyone else, they pay  more for any kind of
insurance, and are made to feel like they are  scum.  Now you want to ban smoking in
cars??  When was the  last time you heard of someone getting killed because
they just had  too much to smoke? What about alcohol??  The last time I heard  of
an accident about someone getting killed because someone had too  much to
drink was...well...TODAY!  You can't stop the drunks  from drinking and driving
so why not go to the smokers, especially  since we pay 3 times as much tax on
our cigarettes as the people who  buy alcohol.  Come on people!  If we are
really concerned  about public safety, lets put a ban on advertising any alcoholic
drink, and tax them out the ass.

driving has done to so many families across  America..yet there has been NO new

that if you get behind the wheel of a car and  drive drunk...and in the course
that you hit someone and  kill them..you should be charged with 1st degree

Agree with you. I often think that if  alcohol was only just being introduced
now, the  government would have to ban it in order to have a  consistent
approach.  It's also amazing how many  people look down on drug-users but are
quite happy to go  out themselves with the express intention of getting  hammered.
Ask them what the difference is and they  are hard-pressed to tell you. 
Personally   I've never done drugs and of alcohol, but I do see  the
side-effects, and so I tend to view both in a  similarly negative way.  The crime and
damage from  alcohol tends to be more directly felt, but there are  also a lot of
drugs-related crimes.


However,  if by 'experienced' you mean 'experienced the effects  of' then I'd
agree.  I've experienced the effects  of drug use when I've been negatively
affected by the  behaviour of people off their heads.  I know people  who have
become increasingly paranoid from drug use, and  I 've seen the effects on
their friends and  families.  I've had stuff stolen from me by drug  users. In my
opinion that qualifies me as much as anyone  else to say what I think.

Why not ban alcohol for "off-duty" activities?  I sure would  feel much safer

Hmmm...wonder if our "law makers and elected officials" would  support that

Kennedy, along with half the legislative  branch, wouldn't last long with those
rules...(Freshen that up  for you, senator?).   And corperate executives...doesn't
their own health affect their company...shouldn't they be first in  line to
give up, even at home, excesses that cost the company  money?  Will they be
tested and fired if the have a  puff?

This is just more govenment supported big business control of the 
workers...it has little to do with actual smoking or health.   The cost of testing
people for tobacco makes the whole idea moronic  and financially impractical.   And
then we want to  impliment a system of corperate rats who snitch when they
see people  smoking...what a wonderful society we are building for  ourselves.
]]I'm a social worker and I've never seen children removed  from their

For those of us who went to college (and actually did  some studying), we
learned that there has never once  been a death related to the use of marijuana 
alone.  We also learned, that two of the three most  dangerous drugs to the
human body are alcohol and  nicotine.  Where does marijuana stand on that  list?
It is pretty close to the bottom.
Our society has let itself become ignorant, and  judgemental.  Why do we
condone and accept  alcohol and nicotine as a "lifestyle", something cool  and
glamorous?  Why does our society continue to  fall for this insane propaganda? 
The answer is two  fold....money and big corporations.
Open your eyes people.  If we want to ban the  use of marijuana, then should
we not take the next step  and ban the use of alcohol and nicotine?  Many of 
you are mislead, and therefore assume mislead  opinions.    
No, I am not saying that we should aslo condone the  use of other drugs that
are medically proven to cause  permanent, and long term damage to our bodies
(heroin,  cocaine, LSD).  What I am saying is our society  needs to wake up,
and educate itself with the facts, not  what our "trustworty" government and
media tell us.
If we are to classify those who smoke marijuana as  loosers, should we not
put those who drink and smoke  cigaretes into the same category?  Why do we 
classify those who smoke marijuana as criminals, when we  classify alcoholics as
people who have a disease?

Cigarettes and alcohol kill  way more people than good ol' pot ever will, and
will continue to do so.  However our  greedy, stupid *ss government which
doesn't have  a lick of common sense, can't profit from it so  they ban it.  If
it were legal it would  also cut into the insane profits that the 
pharmaceutical companies are raking in by  making Americans take their useless
products, 
therefore they contribute millions to our stupid  government to fight the
legalization of  pot.  Our government doesn't operate on  smarts and common
sense, just dollars.  If  you contribute enough money, you can control the 
government.  Do you think we would be in  Iraq if they didn't have any oil...I think
not,  WMD's is just a lie masking the oil companies  money interests.  This
medical marijuana  issue cuts into the pharmaceutical companies  bottom line. 
The pharmaceutical companies  don't care about our health...just the health of 
their bank accounts.  Just listen to their  commercials.  Take this
prescription pill  for this minor ailment..but you may suffer these  horrendous side
effects.

Of course, but I don't exactly see the  government making any attempts to ban
alcohol again. 

You know what's weird? The same thing people did  with alcohol when it was
banned at one point people are  doing it with pot (smoking it as though it's
legal --  and you'd be surprised how many people smoke it). And  that's how come
alcohol was made legal again -- too many  people were being arrested for it.

I think the  only reason it isn't working with pot is because our  government
has become more money hungry (they make money  off of busting people with
pot) than what they used to  be. I think there was a point in time when the 
government truly cared about its  people.

I was reading the link for the 411 on steriod  use from the webMD and this is
why I think there  are more things to worry about than steriod use.  These
are the side effects listed:
Men who take anabolic steriods may:
* Develop breasts   (the users problem)
* Get painful erections  (again the users  problem)
* Have their testicels shrink (their problem again)
* Have decreased sperm count (also their problem)
* Become infertile or impotent (are we seeing a patern  yet?)
Both men and women may:
* Get acne
* Have oily scalp and skin
* Get yellowing of the skin
* Become bald
So Far I Do Not See Any  Real Dangers!
Now a little more serious  things but I still have questions:
* Have heart attacks  (ok. good reason, but a bad diet  also causes this.  I
do not see anyone  outlawing unhealthy food!)
* Develope significant risk of liver disease  and liver cancer
(ok. alcohol also  causes this, but where is the ban on  alcohol)
* Have high levels of "bad " cholesterol.
(Again, unhealthy  foods cause this but we still have fast food  resturaunts
on ever corner in the  country. )
* Have mood swings, fly into rages, suffer  delusions
(Again,   alcohol also causes all these things, yet  alcohol is still very
much ok.)
I guess  I am just  curious about the REAL reason people are so  against
steriods when there are many legal  things out there that are just as bad if not 
worse out there??!!!
I guess I just think that grown ups who are  educated on the side of effects
of steriods  should be able to make their own decisions about  it.  There far
more serious issues to worry  about than this!

In the article I read in  today's paper, it

there are risks with taking it, I have to  ask myself what the percentage of
deaths to  people taking ephedra were.  Why you  ask?  In my state alone last

I couldn't agree more. Just recently there  have been several incident of
pilots being DWI  while flying. Alcohol kills or is  responsible for far more
deaths and illnesses  than smoking. In addition, there are numerous  incidences
of drunken passengers creating  disturbances on planes. 
In addition to the NO Smoking Ban add a NO  Alchoholic Drink ban. Of course
No Alchohol  would mean a revenue loss for the airline so  that is probably why
this issue is not  pursued. For the record, I am a smoker and  been known to
imbibe, so have no axe to  grind.
I totally agree with the notion of pre  flight testing of pilots et all for
drugs and  alcohol.
It's about time the" powers that  be"  cease regimenting the American  public
and start legislating  their  monied constituancy  regarding obvious 
problems.

As far as bars go...  I am against alcohol!  When someone drinks and drives it is like someone playing russian roullete with their own lives and the lives of anyone on the road.  Alcohol is a drug.  An addictive drug.  Yet it is legal.  I was young and foolish at the time that I drank.  Alcohol causes some people to black out and not know what they have done during that time.  It is a big cause of the break up of marriages.  Of families.  When a spouse chooses alcohol over their family.  I feel alcohol should be illegal.  I am more anti alcohol than anti smoking.  If someone doesn't want to be where their is smoke then go to someplace that has a no smoking section.  If someone doesn't want to be around alcohol you have to stay inside you home because people drink and drive.  I lost a brother n law who was on his way home from college with his fiance' to tell the family he was getting married.  On their way home a man who was under the influence of alcohol ran into them.  He died instantly, his fiance' lived in a coma for a few months and died.  They were both 21 years old.  Just graduated from college and ready to start their lives as husband and wife.  And one man took that away from them.  One man took away a  brother , a son, a daughter, a friend to so many.  There are deaths of families, children, babies, husbands, wives, mothers, fathers , and friends, everyday because alcohol is legal. 
Yes , smoking is bad but alcohol is so much worse.  You can get away from smoke you can't get away from alcohol.  God Bless All!  Rid this great country of the deadly liquid , alcohol.

Let's list just a few things that Alcohol does to a person OR to someone that may be right next to them.


* Drinking during pregnancy has been linked to birth defects and is the leading known preventable cause of mental retardation. Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) is characterized by a cluster of congenital birth defects which include low birth weight, physical deformities, neurological and other major organ disorders. (this affects more than the person drinking, ya wanna talk about second hand smoke?)

* Pregnant women who drink are twice as likely as nondrinkers to have a growth-retarded infant weighing less than 5.5 pounds.

* Alcohol use results in economic costs of more than $112 billion each year, or nearly $400 for each person in the United States.    

* Nearly one-fourth of all persons admitted to general hospitals have alcohol problems or are undiagnosed alcoholics being treated for the consequences of their drinking. Up to 25% of emergency room visits involve alcohol. In 1990, Federal payments for alcohol-related health-care costs amounted to more than $21 billion.    

* In 1999, alcohol and other substance abuse costs imposed $60.3 billion on Medicare and Medicaid, veterans, and other major health benefits.    

* In 2001, alcohol was a factor in more than 40% of traffic fatalities   

* Approximately 35% of fatalities from falls and 43% from burns are alcohol-related   

* Forty-seven percent (47%) to 65% of adult drownings involve alcohol.    

* Up to 40% of industrial fatalities and 47% of industrial injuries can be linked to alcohol consumption and alcoholism.    

* A 2000 study of boating fatalities in four states found that 51% of the fatalities involved a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of .04 or more. Thirty-one percent (31%) had BACs over .10.   

* Alcohol is the leading cause of death and injury (e.g., motor-vehicle crashes, homicides, and suicides) among teenagers and young adults ages 15-24.   

*The estimated annual cost of alcohol-related STDs in the United States is $556 million.   

Lets put the same restrictions on alcohol to save our population that we do on tabacco!

   Although I believe smoker should be courteous to non-smokers I believe that the exact same laws, taxes and social barriers should be put in place for alcohol.

I have never drove home drunk on Cigarettes, how many people are killed each year on the road by smokers.  How many spouse abuse and assault cases arise out of someone coming home having had too many cigs.

Healthcare costs in this country (15%+ alcoholic rate) for alchol abuse is far greater than that for smoking.  So why aren't the states suing alcohol manufacturers???  Why are Alcohol companies allowed to make seductive ads aimed at young people??

Money, Money , Money thats why!!! It is amazing that they banned smoking on airplanes (not for your health, but to save on fresh oxygen thats required), but you read the papers all the time about incidendents involving alcohol............Airlines sell alcohol not cigarettes....amazing that they would put an aircraft in jeopardy, but don't you dare smoke!!

I am a non-smoker, but I stand for smokers rights, and I don't down one because of their choices, come back to this same forum in a year when you will be discussing the issues of alcohol banning as well, then you will be on the same page the smokers are on today.

This is all a one sided BS attack. Non-smokers can argue the health issues all they want, but you don't hear them arguing those points about alcohol. In fact alcohol isn't even under attack, so let's talk about that...

Health Issues:

A) Self Inflicted Illnesses

2) Alcohol
a) Tobacco causes Lung Cancer
b) Alcohol destroys the liver

B) Affecting Others
1) Tobacco
2) Alcohol
a) 2nd hand smoke may cause others medical problems twenty years down the road
b) Drinking and Driving can wipe out a family right down the road fifteen minutes from a bar

In an outdoor stadium at a sporting event you can drink all you want up to a certain point of the game, but you can't smoke a cigarette. At many restaraunts you can order hard liquor and drink as much as you want, but you can't smoke a cigarette. I don't see no anti drinking movements happening, only anti smoking attacks. How about leveling the playing field?

Oh to non-smokers who drink wouldn't like the idea of their right to a beer with their steak being taken away would they? Or God forbid if you can't drink at a sporting event, but the hell with cigarette smokers rights! Doesn't that pretty much sum up the truth behind all of this?

Spare me with the 2nd hand smoke BS argument too, because as already proven above that is a hypocritical argument. How many of you drinkers always has a designated driver? Sorry, but your drinking and driving is far more deadly and harmful to others than second hand smoke.

Both alcohol and smoking kill people.. if a bar is going to ban smoking, might as well ban alcohol too. Alcohol kills more people than smoking anyway, you have to add up those in car accidents, alcoholism, suicide attempts which yes, is sometimes caused by alcohol. Why in hell, when you're in a bar, would you want to go outside and smoke a cigarette when some bars actually have a fee to get in? Which means you'd have to pay to get in again. Bars are social places. Personally, if a bar chose to ban smoking I don't think many people would attend, everyone has a friend that smokes and they aren't going to want to go there. I think if a non-smoker has a problem with it he or she should just shove it up their you know what, because even when you step outside (for those non-smokers that have a problem with this) their going to run into polution that could possibly kill them also.. so, maybe we should just go back to cavemen time??

This is freaking ridiculous!!  If cigarettes are to be made illegal, then alcohol should be illegal as well.  More people die from the stupidity of drunkenness than from second hand smoke!!  Can anyone name one documented case in which the cause of death was second hand smoke???  You probably cannot because there is none to document.  How many INNOCENT people die from a drunk driver's poor judgement??? Thousands!  So, If the enviro-nazis decide to make smoking illegal, then alcohol should be first.  Alcohol is the most addicting, life ruining drug out there besides perhaps heroin.  Oh and by the way alcohol kills brain cells, messes up your liver, stomach, and pancreas.  Americans are soooo vastly stupid when it comes to things that should make common sense.  I wish people in this hole in the earth would wake up and get some brains before the whole country collapses.

Why in hell, when you're in a bar, would you want to go outside and smoke a cigarette when some bars actually have a fee to get in? Which means you'd have to pay to get in again. Bars are social places. Personally, if a bar chose to ban smoking I don't think many people would attend, everyone has a friend that smokes and they aren't going to want to go there. I think if a non-smoker has a problem with it he or she should just shove it up their you know what, because even when you step outside (for those non-smokers that have a problem with this) their going to run into polution that could possibly kill them also.. so, maybe we should just go back to cavemen time??

This is freaking ridiculous!!  If cigarettes are to be made illegal, then alcohol should be illegal as well.  More people die from the stupidity of drunkenness than from second hand smoke!!  Can anyone name one documented case in which the cause of death was second hand smoke???  You probably cannot because there is none to document.  How many INNOCENT people die from a drunk driver's poor judgement??? Thousands!  So, If the enviro-nazis decide to make smoking illegal, then alcohol should be first.  Alcohol is the most addicting, life ruining drug out there besides perhaps heroin.  Oh and by the way alcohol kills brain cells, messes up your liver, stomach, and pancreas.  Americans are soooo vastly stupid when it comes to things that should make common sense.  I wish people in this hole in the earth would wake up and get some brains before the whole country collapses.

Dear friend, ALL alcohol should NEVER enter the body, it odes NO GOOD WHATSOEVER.
As I said in another message,the bozze is produced by the "fermentation" process,
ferment means  to rot, decay?go off.
Booze is very good at tricking the mind and body, i.e. schnapz is drunk to keep out the cold, WRONG!, what it does is has a sort of numbing effect so you cant feel the cold. this is why tramps drink meths, they think they feel warm but they die of hyperthermia because the body cant warn them they are cold because the neves that cause shiver to warn you are numbed.
Alcohol is a depressant, and finally what happens to make one tipsy or drunk, what actually causes that? What happens is that because of the poison in your blood, the blood cells stick together like sticky gobstopper sweets thus restricting the flow of blood through the capilliary glands, hence the result is a lack of oxygen to the brain and the brain starts to malfunction, the person becomes more and more incoherant and wobbly, silly and even hallucinatory and violent and sick, some paraletic to the point of incapable of simple body movements and eventually passing out.
Now tell me that this behaviour is natural and perfectly normal and fun. FUN? to destroy your mind and body cells,to wallow around like some stupifed zombie and then wake up with a horrendous hangover and often not remember a thing? Has the human race lost the plot or something?

I believe you are right about the alcohol.  I know it not only puts people on the highways in danger but it also destroys most families.  I know this for a certainty.  I wonder what will happen when they ban alcohol just like they do smoking?  It needs to happen.  Being a drunk is more readily accepted where smoking is not.  Go to any bar around closing time and see who the alcohol is aimed at.  Most of them are young people.  All alcoholic commercials are aimed at the young people and show what a joyous time these people have that drink.  What these commercials don't show is the heartbreak of families that have to deal with the problem.  GET REAL

This new law is just another way to take away the rights of all people.  When are people going to wake up and see what is happening.  One day we won't have any rights at all and the American people will have no one to blame but themselves

OK, I agree that restaurants should be non-smoking;  or at least clearly state that, if a "Bar and Grill" type of establishment, smoking is allowed in certain sections....As an ex-smoker, I don't care to eat at a restaurant that allows smoking....ON THE OTHER HAND:  ALCOHOL RELATED ILLNESS HOSPITALIZE AND KILL THOUSANDS IF NOT MILLIONS OF PEOPLE EACH YEAR! OK, we would NEVER think of banning booze....but it is a CHOICE to order a drink, or to frequent establishments which serve alcoholic beverages.  Hell, booze affects thousands of unborn children, and millions of families suffer because of alcohol related problems each year, but we dare not say that everyone who CHOOSES to drink has a low IQ, is selfish, is a bad parent, etc....

      I agree...and I am a smoker.  I do not like the price hikes of the cig's...but I think alcohol should be banned all together.  What the hell good does it do.  I was the child of drinkers, the wife of drinkers...and yes ocassionally I do drink..but I could live with out it.  Perhaps one day I can live with out smoking too. 

      Alcohol kills people in many more ways that smoking. 

      Car wrecks.
      Liver disease.
      Family violence.
      Many other things that I have lived through.

      There was a time when alcohol was banned....I would like to see it agian.

it is  a proven fact that alcohol has major affects on the lungs as bad as cigarette smoke not to MENTION alcohol also creates tiny holes in your brain tissue which is not reversable.alcohol also causes effects on your judgment and people drinking also loose their inhibitions. does smoking cause you to loose your judgment or inhibitions?
do you hear of car crashes because of a smoker that got out of hand? do you hear of people going to jail because they lost their temper smoking? do your book-work.

It has recently come to my attention, and my doctor's attention, that I was born with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, and have had many inner battles with the lasting effects of social problems, a chemical imblance, and the physical problems related to the disorder. I haven't needed alcohol to cope with life's trials for over 2 years, and I am better off without it. I believe we all are. Jason Lee Ostrom

How ever as time goes on I see an possible permanet prohabitions of alcohol as if we as an nation does come muslim friendly ( which strictly prohabit use of any altering substances) as most Christian would also like to see come sooner or later . yea just give this another few years it will happen (permanant prohibation) Specially when there will be an studie via the mormons (expert on geneology) on how altering substances does destroyed and greatly shorting the lives of indivisual Families and communities sooner or laters it will come out on the papers and will become lawfuls.

It is not the government's, nor your, job to play morality police, either. There are many problems much more terrible than a glass of wine plaguing the world. Maybe your efforts would be more beneficial for the billions of starving people across the globe. Oh, but I guess that you all have other things to do such as banning the use of profanity or, better yet, how about a petition to prohibit dancing and laughter. Besides the entertainment factor of alcohol, it also provides citizens ofcountries with poor water quality to consume water without becoming ill.

    Comments: i agree with your comments on alcohol the only reason alcohol is still legal and not banned is because of the ammount of money goverments make of taxation,of alcohol they have no concerns as to the effects of alcohol consumption as it is also very profitable for them people being fined for the behaviour or imprisoned it all adds up to more money for them in england alone the goverment get 15 billion per year of alcohol tax thats without all the crime and misery and property damage that is why i have decided to stop drinking you should recomend others do the same muslims are not allowed or permmitted to drink alcohol as it says in the koran as revealed to mohammed pbuh 1400 years ago money rules this sick world and the goverments of the world dont care about alcohol's effects on people because it makes them billions of pounds dollars euro's etc yen etc

    Comments: First off, let me say that I am not a neoconservative nutjob. I am extremely far to the left on just about every issue - except this one. I have never experienced death due to the evils of alcohol, though I have seen what it does to people and do not wish to see any more. My mother's family has a bit of a history of addiction to various substances. My aunt recently lost her job of many years due to about two years of alcohol abuse, although, thank God, she is recovering now, has another job, and is doing much better. I personally feel that my own mother is on that path also, something that I hope desperately I am incorrect about. My grandmother on my mom's side, a former alcoholic and smoker, has been fully recovered for many years from the aforementioned illnesses, and is just about my only ally, if you will, on that side of the family. In my short life, I have seen enough of alcohol. I am sick and tired of it. I am sick of people being someone other than themselves until they wake up in the morning. I am sick of special moments in time being lost in the minds of some of the ones that they were shared with. Mostly, I am sick of alcohol related deaths. Alcohol is a poison, just as poisonous if not more than any drug that you would but illegally on the black market. Unfortunately, it has gained a complete acceptance in the modern media, and people don't seem to care about it any more. It is treated as something that everyone does, and only outcasts don't. I agree with posts prior to my own, that the first step is to lock down on all alcohol advertising, particularly on the internet and on television. Personally, as a Christian as well, it is troubling to me to see the human body destroyed by mind-altering substances for the sake of a (very) temporary euphoria. My main concern against alcohol, however, comes not from being a Christian, nor a liberal Democrat, nor any other label you could use on me. As a human, I look out and see the other humans on the planet destroying themselves with alcohol. I look out and see people dying every single say from alcohol. It is time for that to stop.

Sure, that might only be because I was only against underaged (I'm only 16) but since the first time my girlfriend decided to try it, her morals about it (once the same about underaged) have completely shifted, to the point where she no longer knows why it bothers me (so much that we had a fight over her wanting to drink, but not near getting drunk, at her friend's 21st. She didn't at all). The world would be better without alcohol.

    Comments: During my teens I drank alcohol excessively. I failed my exams at school, probably have caused long-term damage to my liver and millions of my brain cells. I upset everyone in my life and everyone around me. I damaged property, I was violent, I caused so much hurt to those who cared for me and to myself. My own choices, but I don't think I was aware of the full extent consequences around drinking alcohol. Who is when they're 13, 14 Most adults don't even realize it. As a grown woman I suffer from depression, anxiety, paranoia, emotional instability and dependency. I believe this is all completely and directly related to the consumption of alcohol in my youth. I wish this substance had been illegal and that I had never touched it in my life, because it has almost destroyed me. Also, my father is an alcoholic but fortunately is in recovery, however he is in a place rehabilitation and doesn't get to see his family regularly. I have lost several relatives due to alcoholism on both sides of my family. This is the most horrible of all drugs purely because it is legal which gives people a false sense of safety when they are consuming it! People think they are doing something completely normal when they go out on a Friday/Saturday night and drink 20+ units of alcohol but they are causing massive damage to themselves and often others! There needs to be more awareness about the dangers of this drug and the only way we can do this is by making it illegal because this is the only way people are ever going to get the message. It hurts me to know that there are going to be millions of other youngsters doing what I did and regretting it as much as I do later on in life.. it's just not right. How can our governments allow this to happen Something needs to be done.

And quite frankly its is used as an excuse for some of the worst human behaivior possible ( a viable excuse in many cases). In the past it was drank because it was afer to than water which was difficult to filter......now its used as a means to intoxicate oneself, and fool the mind, confuse the senses and defile personal morals.

    Comments: Alcohol has never, and will never aid anyone, it can never truly comfort anyone of anything. It causes the same problems for the others around them, who you don't see pouring another glass of wine to take the edge off. I have a degenerative disease, at 18, and I am not expected to live for long. That isn't what angers me, it's that the time I have left with those I love is wasted on Alcohol. Those are just the mental side-effects of Alcohol for people who DON'T drink. Every single person on both sides of my family drink it except me, that is about 40 people. My father drove his car through a building under the influence, City Hall for that matter. I am just scratching the surface of why it is bad, and it's laughable how the most sensible member of the family is so young, having been brought up around alcohol. It was offered to me as early as 10 years old by my own father, and later many times by my older sister. Just ban it, it's wasting resources, taking lives that were ruined by it already and destroying relationships.

(ps I'm not religious, it's just a great analogy). I understand that there are social occasions in which alcohol is acceptable, but why should it be? What is the point? There is no benefit - only costs. We spend billions on the effect of alcohol - we need to fix it.

    Comments: Liquor / Alcoholic beverages are considered as a 'Social Evil' Majority do not consume alcohol. It is more the reason that we care for such majority and stop producing/dispensing alcoholic beverages. It is a Potential threat to children. Ladies and elders, well to any one! After consumption of liquor, the drinker may loose control on his/her behavior that may lead to latent danger children. ladies and elders. Demonstration of alcoholism by select few is done in a manner that it appears to be manly though alcohol consumption degrades mind, body and soul. Such false manly projections tempt young ones to join the band wagon. Liquor may actually detract from the actual purpose of the life. It could actually be counterproductive to our goals of living a healthy life for self and others who matter to us. Drinker gets high after consuming alcohol. In effect, fellows may become target of his/her frustrations which do not remain in his/her control. Abuses, shouting and uncalled for remarks become common phenomenon. By convention, a mistake of an alcoholic is ignored. 'Well he is drunk...' type attitude is commonly observed which causes an uncomfortable situation for fellows. It is bad for health. Government should be concerned about the health of the citizens.

    Comments: Alcohol is an evil drug, there is no question about it. We live in a society which accepts - and to some extent advocates - its use. Use of a drug that causes death and destruction, breeds violence, abuse and neglect. The drug that's responsible for ruining millions of people's lives and that of their families for years afterwards. The drug that drains our economy, saturates our health service and ruins the future of humanity. We continue to use this drug - the WORST of all drugs - as our governments continue to allow it to be used freely, so long as it is a taxable product, but which ultimately contributes nothing to our society yet takes everything from it. This is not scaremogering. This is the truth.

My brother had cirrhosis of the liver because of alcohol. He died a month ago. He was only 36. I knew long before I turned 21 that I would never drink and the older I get, the more I hate the thought of alcohol and the terrible effects it has. I've had others try to tell me the benefits of alcohol or try to tell me that having a couple drinks now and then is not bad, but there's so much bad stuff about alcohol and it completely overrides the good. It's not worth the pain and heartache it has caused.

    Comments: In total agreement. Well written. Alcohol is the scourge of society. A ban on alcohol would be welcome and I am glad to see that I am not the only person that feels this way. Shame on the Government countries who allow the sale of this highly addictive and destructive substance. How much profit does the government take in on taxes from the sale of this poison? The government is as guilty as those who commit the crimes that are a direct and indirect result of those perpetrators who commit them in relation to Alcohol. So are the Publican's and the Brewery's who profit from the sale of this highly dangerous drug. Shame on You. The government, the publican's and the brewery's are the pusher's of this drug that is shaking society to it's very core. They are the profiteers. It is truly an injustice that Alcohol is legal. When other dangerous drugs such as Cocaine and Heroin are Illegal. Cocaine, Heroin, to name a few and Alcohol are all in the same class. The dealer on the street gets busted for selling methamphetamine. As does the user. And yet the Government allows the legal sale of Alcohol, through off licences, Public Houses, Restaurants and Hotel's. What is wrong with them. Are they Mentally ILL also like the people Who push and use drug's and drink alcohol. It sure seems that way. Or else they are incredibly obtuse. It would seem that the Government are no better than the Mafia, the criminal gang's and the drug lord's who gain from the Illegal sale of class A drugs such as cannabis, cocaine, methampetamine heroin to name a few. That is surly the case. Shame on the government, and their criminal empire who gain from the sale of Alcohol. A substance which is tearing this nation apart, criminally, emotionally, financially , psychologically. Turning people into psychotic and Delusional Alcoholics. Costing the health service a fortune. Killing people on our roads. Peoples lives changed forever. Families torn apart. It's time the government had a good look at themselves in the mirror and did something to change this incredible tragedy that is Alcohol. And put a ban on this highly addictive and dangerous substance, before the next innocent person end's up in A + E Unconscious.

I will never understand how they justify that cigarettes are so horrible to others that we take off all commercials for them, ban smoking in any public building whatsoever and have to be several feet away; we ban marijuana because of the damage it does to your body and brain; but yet they sit promoting alchol in public places (bars) and several advertisements ( doubt 30 mins go by without some sort of beer or hard liquor commercial) and overall alchol is the MOST dangerous drug out there. How many people wind up in hospitals having to have their stomach pumped? How many INNOCENT people do they hurt through abuse, drunk driving accidents or other such things? Not to mention you think throwing up constantly and making yourself basically nuts through the overuse of alchol is healthy? In some people, drinking alchol has the equivalent effect as a mentally healthy person taking Prozac, it makes decent people into complete psychotics and yet we promote this through advertising and have yet to put any restrictions on it other than to be 21 years of age. Altering your personality is INAPPROPRIATE for any age, that's why we ban the misuse of prescription drugs and illegal drugs. It should be common sense that ALCOHOL IS A DRUG and it should be TREATED as such. Why do you think they call alcholism a DISEASE if it's safe in the governments eyes? FULLY SUPPORT!!!!!

    Comments: Declare alcohol a narcotic drug, like marijuana and cocaine, it can harm or even kill people, Bring prohibition (or ban) of alcohol back sometime in the 21st century, making it illegal to possess or consume, like a similar law in Alaska, where alcohol ban is enacting in that state, and that similar law should be enacted in the lower 48 states (e.g., for New York, Vermont, Texas, etc), because it can make people violent, cause deadly car accidents, or kill other people if someone ran over a person while driving a car drunk. If prohibition is back, punish bar owners, alcoholic drink manufacturers who produce alcoholic beverages (e.g. beer or wine), and shut that business down, and send that owner to prison, like drugs such as marijuana and cocaine, or a gun. Days when a event take place that requires alcohol, if prohibition is to occur, people should be subject to searches, and if caught that person should be prosecuted, and sent to jail. to keep that venue safe from vandals, or fights,

Let's get rid of alcohol, and, if the alcoholics don't like it, well, tough, they don't care about anyone else, why should we care about them?.

    Comments: my sister is an alcoholic and is fighting for her life with liver failure due to alcohol. I can appreciate many of you people think its stupid to go banning alcohol and its people like my sister fault for "abusing" it. The fact of the matter is, some people are genetically more predisposed to become dependant on alcohol, and some people through very poor unfortunate chains of events also become highly dependant on alcohol. It becomes a long process and eventually an alcoholic cannot stop themselves. In AA they never say you were an alcoholic but you are always in a state of recovery. Once the invisible line of alcoholism is crossed it never leaves you. Relapses are eventually inevitable. And if people were more sympathetic to these people that cant help it, when obviously alcohol is not necessary for anyone to live, it should be pretty obvious that alcohol being banned is only going to benefit people physically, emotionally, financially and mentally. Alcohol should be baned, and the government increasing duty on it for dependants will not work, it will just get to the point where people cant afford it and will just steal it. You selfish people saying they should just stop before commenting should read up about alcoholism. The effects and how it ruins their and their familiy and friends lives. Its heart breaking. BAN IT

Why can't you just go to a party with punch> Do you seriously have to be drunk to have fun??? SAD>

    Ronald Buckman I used to be okay with drinking in moderation, but after my closest friend, Michelle Lee (Britton) Farmer, died of alcohol poisoning on March 13 at age 46, I became as strongly against drinking booze as David J. Stewart of the jesus-is-savior.com web site. I now know that you should not set a poor example for severe alcoholics. You should never help others drink booze, especially alcoholics. I want more students educated on the dangers of alcohol, suggesting total abstinence; and I am in favo...r of a ban on alcoholic beverage commercials on radio and TV.

    after having fun, some of us vomit on the streets, malls, stations ... peeing in the pants, on public booths, streets ... do we really want this kind of fun ?
    next day we will be falling around, saying "oh ****, i drank last night, i got hung over" "my head is hurting" "aah, i dunno what happen last night"  "i couldnt manage to walk"

    what the hell is wrong with ppl :(

    Ch Abdul Wahab it can be your father, mother, sister, brother... your daughter, your son...
    just look what we are giving to our up coming generation... ppl think they are having fun... do they know what this FUN HELL is ??? no, i will never recommend this FUN to my children nor yours, i am human, i have right to fight against it.

    Alcohol is what gives people the excuse to act like complete morons, and it's sad because people buy up this gimmick the alcohol industry brain washes us with. I see no good reason as to why people are against smoking and drugs, yet okay with sipping on a glass of wi.ne. It's very sad how alcohol can change nice people into some obnoxious rude drunks, and why is it that women feel the need to dance like strippers after having a couple drinks? Do some women feel alcohol permits them to act like strippers? Why is alcohol what we're suppose to consume in the club/party atmosphere? and WHY is alcohol something you're suppose to consume when you're depressed about something?? ALCOHOL IS A DEPRESSANT !!! Everything points against the use of alcohol, and most people (probably outside this group anyway) will read this, laugh about it, because they have no valid argument against it, than continue living as a whore gimmick for the alcohol industry. Go to your clubs and get drunk, dance like clowns, hang over each others shoulders and scream into each others ears about complete gibberish, take pictures of each other posing with drinks in your hands, because youíre an advertisement whore for an industry because TV told you to do so, than pick up a complete stranger, which you wouldnít have the confidence to talk to without alcohol, and if you don't get into an accident on your way home have unsafe sex and get an STD, which you can later blame the alcohol for, than throw up all over your floor, wake up feeling half dead, and than go out with your buddies to talk and laugh about how "plastered" you got the night before, go ahead, after all it's not like you're supporting an industry that lives off the pain and suffering of so many people.

    Dylan Senior-Shaggy Young okay, alcohol is probaly one of the worst drugs out there, yet despite all it's pains it remains legal...personally i think it shouled remain that way, the problem lies in the fact that alcohol is seen as harmless and promoted as such. Marijuana has virtually no proven negative afects on the body adn is illegal. the drug war is useless and and results in alcohol abuse because it is meant to. society is built to create alcohol abuse becasue it helps keep people controlable adn keeps supplying the government with large ammounts of money
