  1. Strong alcohol can clean brain plaque like that on your teeth it also helps shy people become more social and relaxed. Cambridge fails you because they want their $ and alcohol provides none for them.

  2. Wow 😯 such informative info cause im such a mess with my booze drinking that i blackout and am worried about my drinking these last few yrs

  3. I drink at home to numb my depression and sometimes to enjoy a drink to feel the intoxication that's addicting. It makes my anxiety 50%+ worse, it's like brain inflammation.

  4. I’m 30 years old and have maybe been drunk 10 times in my life. I don’t drink any alcohol, never really understood the need for it. Also I feel sorry for the people who post pics of themselves drinking like that’s a big achievement lol

  5. Been hard drinking for almost 20 years and I'm actually going crazy. My aorta is taking a beating, as it is now enlarged. My mind is also going nuts. I'm losing my mind, and I'm hoping to stop some day, but I feel I cannot. I'm what you call a alcohol dependency case. I am trying to stop, but I feel I cannot. It sucks. Almost 20-30 drinks a day at 38 years of age.

  6. Any drinking not only heavy.One drink is changing your thoughts for 18-24 months.Ups and downs and many more stories.Alcohol people drinking real name is Ethanol.Ethanol is in petrol in U.K now.Registered as STRONG POISON AND VERY ADDICTIVE DRUG…Ethanol-Alcohol
