My Thoughts
It is a misconception that you can only enjoy your life with a glass of alcoholic beverage. Human has a tendency to follow what he sees, it’s not completely our mistake as we often see in movies and serials portraying alcohol as a fun factor of life, they portray the most dangerous substance alcohol as a cool thing or as a status symbol but we should never forget that movies, serials are the pure art of friction and has nothing to do with real life. I myself a scientist, I have closely worked with alcohol and for me, alcohol is just another chemical substance which we use in a very very minute amount to prepare tablets and capsules to treat a particular disease, we use alcohol in little amount as we know how dangerous alcohol is for our body.  You only live once, it’s better to live disease-free, frustration-free, depression free, it’s your fundamental right, don’t let alcohol to steal your basic living rights.
