I have recently become aware of a startling finding,
alcoholics, in the vast majority, are the bravest people on the planet!
This might not be a surprise, alcohol lowers inhibitions and it literally makes people braver. But, studies have shown that alcoholics past and present, are generally much more brave and courageous, even if they’ve stopped drinking!
The scenario I heard was roughly like this;
A barbarian horde is running towards you at full steam, you have two choices; you can either run away, or you can defend your home city to the death!
Amazingly, all persons with alcoholism or a history of it ALL chose to defend the city to the death, at the risk of their own lives. But, the non-drinkers were about 50/50.
This is weird. A liquid we’ve known for forever can make us braver……..but…it only makes us braver if we relinquish to it totally…..i.e. become alcoholics………..hmmm?
I know that I have done some incredibly brave (stupid) things during my time with alcohol addiction. I once batted off a home intruder a few years ago. This stupid fuck was trying to climb into our backyard over the fence at about 4am, but I was awake, I was outside having a cigarette (and I was completely drunk) when I saw this cunt flopping into my yard, I grabbed a baseball bat I own and told him to “get the fucking hell out of here you stupid arse!” or something like that……..he went away.
Alcohol has its uses…….I suppose……but come on people……it should be treated the same way that heroin is treated………heroin kills far fewer people!
