People who will try anything once may not get a second chance.
One reason I don’t drink is that I want to know when I am having a good time.
It never occurred to me to stop using drugs. The classic agony of addiction. You can’t stop and you can’t go on. The pain of living without drugs was as bad as the pain of living with drugs. When you use drugs in such a willful way, you’re transgressing some elemental code. You’re destroying yourself, and body and soul recoils at it....Unfortunately...there is only one conclusion, and that is death (by misadventure).
An awful lot of…young women at our very best colleges are being traumatized by what takes place during so much…mindless, drunken partying when they’re steeped in alcohol, which brings out the least engaging aspects of their young selves.
Alcoholic joys are brief—the results are lasting.
When you drink a little bit, alcohol seems like Popeye’s spinach working through your system. It makes you stronger, smarter, funnier, bigger.
It’s all an illusion, of course—but it feels absolutely real while you’re in the middle of it, from the inside looking out.
Keep drinking though, and that illusion will shatter like a crystal bowl dropped 50 stories onto solid marble. And if you imbibe booze way beyond your capacity to handle it, Popeye’s spinach turns into crippling kryptonite.
Your ability to think and reason short-circuits. You can’t even speak, as your tongue triples in weight and your words begin to slur. Your coordination abandons you, and you’re having as much trouble walking in a straight line as you did when you were 18 months old....Just know that when you drink to a certain point, there’s always a chance that when you surrender to the kryptonite, it won’t just make you sound silly or give you a splitting headache—it will kill you.
Jellinek’s disease (alcoholism) is responsible for:
50 percent of all auto fatalities
80 percent of all home violence
30 percent of all suicides
60 percent of all child abuse
65 percent of all drownings
It is estimated that when a woman contracts the disease, her husband leaves her in nine out of ten cases; when a man contracts it, his wife leaves in one out of ten cases.
--Kathleen Whalen Fitzgerald
