The Evils Of Alcohol
"Like every drug, alcohol alters mood. It influences behavior and carried to the extreme, it kills."
The most abused drug in our country and the world over for that matter is alcohol. Though legal, it causes more pain and death than any of the drugs if abuse. It is precisely because alcohol is legal and accepted in our society that it is so easy to abuse. Its availability and the highs that it brings make it tempting for young people to get into. Once hooked, they can go on drinking openly for a lifetime. Unless they get into trouble with the law, they can drink themselves to death and do so legally. Drug addicts get arrested while alcoholics can stagger past policemen without being bothered.
