Alcohol

I think it should be banned, seriously Scotland is so bad our culture is just unbelievably ruled by going to pubs, clubs and getting rat arsed. I stopped drinking for 5 months before and it was so good. Im wanting to stop again because I just think it is a drug of devastation to be honest it creates nothing but bother as my dad says and it is so true. I am so over it. I have tried to limit myself but I just don't. and can not. anyway just felt like a little rant. I don't know if you will remember but when alco pops first got introduced in the U.K there was a massive hoo ha because they look so like soda and pop we call it fizzy juice. The thing is the greed of the government is just sickening and they did absolutely nothing about it and they wonder why the U.K has problems with kids getting blutered at ages of 10 and up DOH. Even worse I bet some younger too. If I ruled the world I would actually totally ban it. If you can't tell I'm hungover and not in the best of moods with the substance. What is your opinion on it? and can you tame your inner wild child attitude when your swaying about like a wonky pendulum?

  1. I am with you on that one. Alcohol is a drug, it is addictive as a drug and it actually kills more than drugs.

  2. I disagree. It's not the government's place to regulate morality. If you want to see what kind of success alcohol bans have, take a look at the United States during Prohibition. If you outlaw legal alcohol, then people will just make it themselves, same with abortion, drugs, everything else.

  3. Out of curiosity, where was this anti-alcohol attitude last night, when you were, presumably, consuming it?

    I agree that it is a drug, but it is your decision to imbibe or not to imbibe, and if you are unable to make that decision responsibly, I fail to see why those who are able to should pay for your mistakes.

  4. I know it's not the governments place to regulate morality but when they agree to let alco pops be introduced to the shelves to entice young people to drink there is a problem. I definitely think that people would make it by themselves which is a shame. Scotland is hooked on drink the government just care about their taxes so that they can pay for the MP's fancy houses. It's a shambles. They are trying to put the price of alcohol up and they think that will stop people from drinking but they are clever they all ready have everyone hooked so they will of course still pay high prices. this anti alcohol rant came from a hungover me and when people taste alcohol for the first time they don't like it it is a horrible tasting substance which people end up getting a taste for but any child that has a sip of a drink hates it. So if it was banned it would mean people would not even fall into the trap and probably wouldn't even care because it wouldn't be something they would choose to drink themselves! However as much as I would like them to ban alcohol I know it is far too late for that and it would be impossible but if i ruled the world I would be putting a lot more effort into showing the bad side of alcohol. For example when I lived in Dundee on the front page of the news paper the headline was about teens drinking too much and causing bother in the streets but on the very same front page they had a big advertisement for a very cheap deal of beer. It's just so stupid they pretend they give a fuck but they clearly don't at all.

  5. im glad alcohol isnt banned, it would be too much effort to make my own!! i would totally make my own diy brew if it got banned though.

    i imagine if it got banned, and i didnt know how to make it and i had to buy from scary people, i might as well get speed as its a lot more fun and i get more done on it. or mushrooms or hm, i can think of a lot of things to get if i have to go to some shady person instead of the shop to get my toxins. so im glad i can go to the shop.

    sorry about the lack of signs etc my computer is recovering from a virus so it doesnt work..

  6. I do not believe that it should be banned completely, because that would infringe on personal liberties and I'm against any law or regulation of that sort. It wouldn't work anyway, they tried it here in the U.S. in the early 1900's. People still drank, they just did so in a sneaky, underground fashion.

    HOWEVER, I do agree that it is an evil, despicable drug that brings out the absolute worst in people. I loved to drink when I was younger, but once I broke free of that pattern and began to think more clearly I realized how much better my life was without it. People seem to enjoy the fact that alcohol serves as a social lubricant, removing the inhibitions of otherwise shy, withdrawn people. But inhibitions are really a good thing. They are what keep us acting in a way that we feel is right and proper, rather than just going off and doing whatever the hell we please with no regards to whether it will affect other people.

    My biggest concern is that while alcohol rips apart lives left and right, causing violence, car accidents, and addiction, a certain "drug" is being demonized by the same politicians who drink themselves to sleep every night. And I feel like that is a huge injustice. I agree with you that we live in a society that condones alcohol use to such an extent that it sometimes seems to me like my entire generation revolves around it, which really upsets me. I admire this post and the fact that you had the courage to speak your mind. Thank you, I always enjoy seeing that.

  7. I'm sorry but after reading all your tweets on Twitter tonight about how drunk you currently are, I have to call you a hypocrite to your face.

  8. Ah, famous words the day after... ;) But I do agree. It always seems like such a good idea while you're out, but then the morning after -- not so much. Hope you're feeling better today (noticed the post was yesterday)!

  9. see the whole reason why i wish it was banned is so that it wasn't so easily available to drink!

  10. I just don't drink. When I was in high school I drank some and for a couple of years after. Now I've been drinking once this year and before that not for about three. I just choose not to do it just like other drugs that some people choose to do.
