Alcoholism


Beers, wines and spirits
Produce some relaxant effects.
Addiction to alcohol
Puts you into a pothole.

You drink alcohol as a daily habit.
You sip it like a natural water.
Just in a bit,
Your life is in danger.

You think it's fun and you're hot.
But you are not!
Intoxication and dehydration
Are some mild effects.

You live in fear and escape problems.
You think alcohol is the answer.
Cirrhosis, brain damage and cancer
Are the irreversible effects.

If you want to live longer,
Be smarter than your doctor.
Vodka, gin, tequila, whisky,  brandy...
Put them all away!

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
