The drink would make you feel really good.
Before it made you feel really bad.
Some of them take it because they’ll rather be seen at bars with three bottles of beer before them rather than in an alley with ashes dropping from the butts of their cigarettes. It perplexes me to hear that they believe that drinking alcohol is better than smoking cigarettes or hemp.
There’s no reason why someone should say that, except if the excessive alcohol intake has also shrunk your brain to the size of a worm.
Smoking is to the Lungs as Alcohol is to the Liver: utterly destructive. The only form of Alcohol that is really needed is Medical Alcohol, and unfortunately, after they’ve drunk to a stupor and hurt themselves, they’ll need the Medical Alcohol, putting their families in a state of financial strain at the hands of a money-hungry health sector.
The one thing that can release them from the chains of alcohol addiction is a good rehabilitation program. But they would rather be seen in a bar than be seen among people at ‘rehabs’. They are too proud and feel they are too prominent and respected to be seen among people of such caliber; among other addicts.
Alcoholics unwilling to acknowledge their terrible situation and seek help will never return to the charming figure they were before they met that damn bottle.
Prompts used: ashes, perplex, worm, release, charming.
