  1. Any possible “health benefits” of these respective glugs are totally outweighed by the poison of alcohol. So don’t kid yourself. What the hell, eat , drink and be merry, because you know what’s in store…..

  2. Nicotine in all it’s disgusting forms is a huge killer but the biggest by far both directly and indirectly is alcohol in all it’s forms.
