Shun that toxin alcohol. Alcohol destroys more lives, more families and does more harm to society inn general than any other drug. Because a few extremely wealthy thus influential elites have made fortunes in the past and continue to do so via alcohol sales and promotion governmental systems support the toxin alcohol. Toss in the politicians grabbing vast sums via the poisonous toxin alcohol taxes and the continued promotion of the deadly life destroying potion continues unabated.
The wise person shuns alcohol in totality.
