Many a horrible thing has been said and done under the influence of alcohol.
Crazy things happen when people drink too much too often. I don’t need to go into statistics. How often are alcohol-induced hurtful words spewed and then forgotten by everyone but the sober? How many words can’t be retracted because they can’t even be remembered by the one who delivered them? It’s dangerous to let fear lock up uncomfortable emotions and then let alcohol be the key that sets them free. It’s almost as dangerous as a car wreck.
Relationships are destroyed, professions are ruined, bank accounts depleted, and trust eroded. You hang around other people who support the alcohol habit and before you know it you’re surrounded by people who are too numb to be authentically real. Everyone seems happy in a bar, but it’s false happiness. Artificial, chemically induced happiness. If you want true happiness, you’re not going to find it in a bottle.
