Alcohol use


Alcohol is the most commonly used and abused psychoactive agent in the United States. Alcohol does have some therapeutic applications, however it is mostly used for nonmedical use. If it is consumed in moderation, alcohol can prolong life. It actually can decrease the risk of dementia and cardiovascular disorders. I also find that it can increase the joy of living if used in a moderate amount. Many people would disagree with me on this issue. The problems of alcohol come in to play when it is consumed in excess. This is easily done. Abraham Lincoln said "None seemed to think the injury arose from use of a bad thing, but from the abuse of a very good thing. "I agree with our 16th president and find it interesting that we continue to have the same issues with alcohol that our ancestors of many years ago did with alcohol. Working in the emergency room proved to me that at times on night shift, I would have more "drunken" patients than sick ones.
