    a shot of whiskey a day will keep the nasties away

    Hello friends, I am no way a drinker, I have not had a beer or any alcohol probably in the past 2 years. Recently (4 days now) I have been taken about 1 ounce, a small shot glass ¾ full a day. I believe it will contribute to longer living. I believe it will kill viruses and clean blood. I believe it is a poison to bacteria and such. I also believe it will not turn me into an alcoholic either, what are your thoughts?

    Some people can drink....some people can't stop.


    Anyway.....several years ago at one of my wife's family reunions I met her uncle E.C. He was about 95 at the time. He was a heavy smoker, and got around real good. I asked him if he drank alcohol...he said- "every day". I think he made 98 before he passed.

    very interesting brojohn, how well did you know him, he wasn't a drunk while you knew him or was he?

    I really believe it will help the human body if it's not abused.

    I have read studies where they concluded moderate alcohol intake can reduce the risk of heart disease....

    I had an uncle that lived in Arkansas, until he died at the age of 101. He drank one beer every afternoon for who knows how many years. Was it the single beer every day? Or was it the fact he lived his life in Arkansas? I like to think it was that single beer. Thing is, beer is like potato chips, if you know what I mean!

    TexasAviator, I believe that as well, even doctors say a glass of wine is ok but that usually does create wine O's

    The studies that have been done on small quantities of alcohol are all flawed badly. When dealing with voluntary alcohol use, there are psychological, behavioral, and even genetic differences that are not controlled for in the studies. So basically no real research has ever been done.
    In any case, using small quantities of alcohol does not mean you are an alcoholic, nor does it mean you are not. I'd be more concerned with your apparent need to justify your drinking - that is a behavior characteristic of alcoholics.

    "The fact is that the average man's love of liberty is nine-tenths imaginary, exactly like his love of sense, justice and truth. Liberty is not a thing for the great masses of men. It is the exclusive possession of a small and disreputable minority, like knowledge, courage and honor. It takes a special sort of man to understand and enjoy liberty – and he is usually an outlaw in democratic societies." –- H.L. Mencken, Baltimore Evening Sun, Feb. 12, 1923

    I don't blame my drinkin' to my bad health or give it any credit for my good health. An ounce or two of good whisky nearly every day doesn't seem to make much difference either way.
