Beware of Alcohol

26 November 2008

Alcohol, an addictive depressant and social lubricant, creates the euphoria of confidence and relaxation, and the sickness of bad judgment and anxiety. The euphoria of confidence and relaxation, and the sickness of bad judgment and anxiety, reinforce each other: the euphoria blinds you to the sickness; and the sickness makes you crave the euphoria. Ironically, alcohol creates and aggravates the very sickness it seems to cure.
