REASONS NOT TO BOTHER WITH ALCOHOL.
1. 
Alcohol is a drug
The chemicals in alcohol impact your brain in exactly the same way that other drugs do. 
2. 
Alcohol does not taste good  
Even the fruity drinks that do taste good are just as good without the alcohol. 
3. 
Alcohol known to be addictive  
AA is such a large organization  because people get addicted and cannot quit without assistance. 
4. 
Alcohol kills brain cells
You can function without a few of the brain cells but there is a cumulative impact  to long term drinking. 
5. 
Alcohol destroys your liver
You cannot live without a liver and alcoholics are usually not eligible for a transplant. 
6.
Makes you do stupid things 
Ever heard of Beer Goggles?
7. 
Lose control of car, gun, boat, etc...
Drunk drivers kill people every single day who were minding their own business. 
8
Drunks are not attractive
Loud obnoxious drunks are not as magnetic as they think. Most people see them as a clown.
9.
 
Vomit is not sexy
Drinking a lot will make you sick and who wants to kiss someone who just vomited. 
10.
Hangovers not worth it
Flu like symptoms that can be avoided probably should be avoided.
11.
Alcohol poisoning CAN kill you
Every year there is another case of some college student who actually dies from alcohol poisoning. 
12.
Drunk people are an easy target
Women in a bar or anybody on the street should be frightened by the idea that predators prey on the weak, 
13.
Expensive habit
A meal at a nice restaurant for 2 people goes from $100 to $350 very quickly once you add wine or other drinks to the bill. 
14.
Want to remember a good time good time?
Blacking out is not conducive to remembering the good times. 
15.
 Lots of ways it can get you arrested
DUI is obvious but public urination or some other foolish move can also cross the lines of legality. 
16.
 Pathetic excuse for entertainment
Surely you can think of another way to entertain yourself. 
17.
 Makes you smell like a brewery
Why would anybody be attracted to a bum? 
18.
 Depressed alcoholics drink at home alone.
Hardly the party alcohol is advertised to be. 
19.
Changes many people's personality
Often someone who is perfectly nice and/or pleasant becomes a babbling idiot on alcohol. 
20.
Want to be like everyone else, really?
Why not be a leader rather than an un thinking sheep. 
21.
Many religions directly oppose the abuse of alcohol.
Yes, they drank wine in biblical times but the abuse of alcohol is prohibited by many religions. 
22.
 Not a good excuse
Alcohol often seems to give people an excuse to do things they know they should not do.
