Alcohol is poison.
This is not some deep metaphor – no, rather it is quite literal. Alcohol is a synonym for poison. Alcohol can kill any human instantly, given enough in a short enough period of time. Prolonged use of alcohol over time attacks and destroys the human body, mainly the liver. And a little thing we call the brain. In other words, no amount of alcohol is good for your overall health.
Thankfully some human beings are starting to take a break from alcohol. Not all of them, but at least some of them are finally becoming enlightened enough to realize that alcohol is literally synonymous with poison. Try this: Anytime you hear the word alcohol replace it in your mind with the word poison and try to think about the fact that it could literally kill any living being in any one sitting with any one taste. That is what poison does. It gets into our bodies and either in the short term or long term kills us. But make no but doubt about it, alcohol is a form of poison that will kill you, 100% of the time, if a few minimal conditions are met such as amount imbibed and how short a time a specific volume of alcohol goes into your body.
These are facts that are not disputable or debatable.
There is no such thing as a human being that would not die given a certain amount of alcohol. And that amount is not nearly as much as you think. Consider this, any one given bottle of whiskey or vodka or some similar spirit could kill me, you or anyone we know or have ever known or will ever know. Any one single bottle.
Try it, sit down and drink the entire bottle. (Do not do that you idiot you will kill yourself!)
My point is that it is 2020 and people seem to be just now realizing that alcohol is poison. We are seeing a small trend of people deciding to go sober for a month but are we really talking about the truth that alcohol should be working its way out of the lives of intellectuals?! As humans get smarter should we not be poisoning ourselves less? Especially when there are other immeasurably safer ways to adjust the state of our minds and ease our pains without risking death in doing so.
Every time someone drinks alcohol they are literally risking death. Seem overdramatic? It is not. However cannabis on the other hand is non-toxic and no amount under any circumstances could ever kill a human being. Again these are facts that are not up for debate or dispute but rather cold hard science.
Yet here we are watching movies and TV shows listening to songs and ballads all glamorizing a poisonous substance that can and has continued to kill millions of humans. It struck me in a recent TV show where two brothers in their mid-30s reconnect and at one point make up over a beer. No one bats an eye at the fact that this beer could kill them but what peaked my curiosity as these gentlemen are about my age, is that I would be much more likely to get together with a friend or brother and vaporize cannabis versus drinking a beer. Yet there are virtually zero television shows or mainstream movies that show things like this to the national audiences. That further adds to the ridiculous taboo that somehow you are a loser drug addict if you use cannabis but it is cool as fork to drink alcohol. In my opinion these two brothers would have been much more likely to get high together than to get drunk!
Music is just as bad as countless songs glamorize alcohol but I cannot think of one mainstream song that talks about cannabis. If an artist came out with a song about cannabis they would be looked at as some sort of weirdo outlier when in reality the weirdos are the ones who constantly put poison in their bodies.
Sporting events, concerts, festivals…they all end alcohol sales early. Why do you think that is? It is an admission of the dangers of the substance!
The men and women of the future (#100years) are going to look back at the men and women living today and scratch their heads. Why would those people willingly put poison into their bodies and why would they do it so often when there are literally non-toxic alternatives?
