    Sure, but its not the substance itself that's the cause, its the legislation. Thats why OD's dropped by 90% in Portugal after decriminalisation.

    Meanwhile alcohol which is legal and regulated is responsible for about 40,000 deaths per year in the UK, about 2/3 from health related causes.

    Alcohol consumption is associated with lower mortality from heart disease and may also be anti-aging due to its mTOR deactivating properties.

    I mostly drink red wine and mostly this one lately, 2 or 3 bottles over a week.



    If I had a history of alcoholism or other chronic disease in the family, I wouldn't be so blasť about drinking.

    For alcohol in small amounts this is very likely true. My grandmother, who drank one glass of (mostly) mild red wine in the evenings reached the age of 95 years. A lot of her female friends with the same consume patterns got into the high 80s/90s too.

    A sidenote: it's somewhat telling that a thread about booze (on a music forum) would get people reply to in relatively high numbers, while the music threads are a bit -*crickets*- these days.

    I think my life would be more fun if I drank more.

    But I don't like hangovers, I don't like what it does to my digestive system, and I don't like that I turn into an absolute cock at least 25% of the time I get drunk.

    Had to be done.

    For the past few years I've suffered horrible hangovers after having as few as three pints. I'm finding it quite useful as an extra incentive to slow down on drinking as I sink into middle age. Partaking of only a single drug does feel a little dull, but everything else feels like it has too many downsides at the moment, and I don't have the temperament/self-control for microdosing.
