A recent Canadian study reveals that one in 25 deaths worldwide is either directly caused by alcohol or is linked to alcohol. One in 25 deaths in the world. That's an alarming statistic. And to think there are those who dare whine about tobacco and how harmful it is.
If tobacco does in fact kill, it is a slow process, taking years. Someone impaired by alcohol behind the wheel of an automobile can wipe out entire families in a heartbeat. Some say there is no need for tobacco in our society. Tell me, just where is the need for alcohol?
Alcohol addiction is far worse than a tobacco addiction. I've never known tobacco to cause traffic accidents, divorce and family disunity. I've never known it to cause domestic violence, or cause impairment of driving, walking, talking, thinking. I've never known it to cause loss of consciousness, or cause an adverse personality change. But it is a fact that alcohol causes all these things and more.
