    No one if forcing you anyway. Though I might sometime express my utter hate for something, I am not a priest nor am I any police. I am not going to stop anyone from from doing what they want. It's your life, so take responsibility for it and what you do. I'm not going to be around to stop you. What you do it your business alone.
    That mentioned, it is fine to encourage or recommend someone to stop, but not to force.
    So carry on.

    Sure, you can do that. But I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. It's a very bad suggestion, as well, because it encourages the use of a very bad habit.
    Drinking is a big problem in today's society, therefore it is within my humble opinion that we shouldn't encourage someone to do it.

    And I really can not find any fun in getting drunk. Sure, you can go out and have fun. Sure, you can go to bars or whatever, talk, do something, have fun. But that doesn't mean you have to drink.

    Ahh, but you never really explained why drinking is so bad? It's not like drinking with your friends in the weekend is going to kill you, as long as you can control it it's completely harmless fun.

    Edit: Are you a nun?

    But I did. It's poison. And it gets you drunk...
    No, nothing of the sort. Hate religion.

    Yes it's poison. And yes, it gets you drunk, but that's a GOOD thing :P

    I understand, I really do. Problem is though, you're not going to convince anyone to stop doing anything by spouting rhetoric like calling it a poison. Beer is essentially fermented yeast, with some hops and barley. If you want to be successful, curb your vocabulary a bit there. I hate rhetoric.

    Erm, I don't see why that's good?

    citizen:
    I don't know if I could convince someone. It's pretty difficult. I wasn't really expecting anyone to take it seriously and stop. I was simply retorting with "this is what happens when you drink."
    Shrugs.

    Like I said, curb your rhetoric.

    The defense rests.

    So alcohol is bad because it is poison and gets you drunk, and getting drunk is bad because alcohol is poison?

    Seems like we are going in circles? Or is it just me...

    No, no, no...
    Getting drunk means you stink, you weirdly or silly, and do things you never actually intended, among them.
    So poison + those effects = alcohol. In short, poison + drunk.
