I disagree, Jack. Human beings have been using alcohol for thousands and thousands of years. The problem here is the fad for using alcohol to become insensible. Another problem is the frequency of using alcohol.

My cousin died in a car accident at 17 years old. She was in a car with a friend who had been driving and the driver survived.

Good article.

Blessings!

Yep: very good article. One further point: beyond the obvious risk from high volume consumed, what's less known is a more insidious danger: high *rate* of consumption is what takes you into anterograde amnesia (ie 'alcoholic blackout', where you don't remember things from one minute to the next) with all the potential for high-risk behaviour that it entails.

As to College Beer Bong and copyright infringement: tripe! I agree that reasonable quotation in the context of non-commercial use for critical comment is well within Fair Use. That said, I'm fairly baffled by current developments in relation to Web law. There's a sinister trend toward companies trying to use 'browsewrap' contracts to bind users to restrictions on comment, way in excess of the normal limits defined by well-trodden standards of freedom of speech, libel and copyright.

"Ain't Nobody's Business If You Do" was a good read and I believe in the concept. It's your body and you have the right to treat your 'self' any way you see fit as long as you don't interfere with anyone else 'space'. "Poor judgement" on what you do to your body shouldn't be a crime. The same for drinking but I disagree with the marketing of BEER. Treat it like hard liquor which has stricter marketing guidelines. Presently the brewerys such as Anheuser Busch is aloud to oversee itself. It's like the fox is watching the hen house and how many chickens get slaughtered in the process is irrelevant as long as the share holders are getting fat. Death equals profit.

The article entitled “Alcohol Deaths: Why?” triggered some of my thoughts on "What Causes College Students to Abuse Alcohol"? Although the answers are probably many, the simplest answer, however, is this: “Because they can.”

When there are so few immediate consequences for excessive drinking, when repeat offenders are not disciplined, when parents are not notified about their children's drinking activities, when students get mixed messages from the college administration about alcohol, when students have seen their parents drinking alcohol in an irresponsible manner, when students are not informed about the long-tern negative consequences of alcohol abuse, when there are few alcohol-free social and recreational activities that are attractive to students, when minors or intoxicated students are served alcoholic beverages by the local drinking establishments, and when the drinking activities in the sororities and fraternities are not monitored---drinking and excessive drinking become so very easy.

When peer pressure or influence is added to the equation, when it is disregarded that drinking alcohol temporarily removes a person from his or her problems, when ignoring the belief or perception that drinking alcohol makes it easier to socialize with potential dating or sexual partners, when it is so acceptable to engage in activities that emphasize the drinking of alcohol, when the "good feelings" or the "fun" of getting an alcohol high or buzz are not considered, and when the party atmosphere at college is expected by students----it become more clear regarding what causes college students to abuse alcohol.

In a word, college students abuse alcohol because they can, because drinking makes them feel good, because drinking helps them relax and open up more in social situations, because drinking can be fun, because their friends and other students are doing it, because of peer pressure and peer influence, because alcohol is so accessible, because excessive drinking is accepted, and because many of them when they were in high school were told by their parents and other influential people that it is okay to get drunk “once in a while.”

My older sister died on September 23, 2005 due to alcoholism. She was only 39 years old. She started binge drinking when she was 14. I wish I had done more to try and stop her. The night she died I vowed to never drink alcohol again. She was my only sibbling and her death has left me alone in a way I never knew alone could be. I miss her very much. She was a good person and a good sister who made some bad choices too early in life.

Hello everybody! I had never been interested in building credit history until I came to buying a car. So I applied for several cards, paid them off and when my credit was good I managed to get a car loan. Now I regularly use credit cards for different purposes and financial tips I found at

There are many types of credit cards and it's very important to understand which one is the right one for you. It is easier to do that when you can compare all the offers by rates, fees and rewards. I usually check

Once I nearly died through protracted drinking. I have now been completely dry for 12 years and am seriously better and enjoy life far more than I could have ever imagined possible.

This is a great opportunity to tell young folk, this stuff is better out of their system than inside. "Irresponsible drinking is fun" is a shocking lie.
