“I think I know the real reason.” “Which is?” “Alcohol in the dust clouds. Goddamn stuff is everywhere. Any lousy species ever invents the telescope and the spectroscope and starts looking in between the stars, what do they find?” He knocked the glass on the table. “Loads of stuff, but much of it Alcohol.” He drank from the glass. “Humanoids are the galaxy’s way of trying to get rid of all that Alcohol.”iain banks
Alcohol is the No. 1 issue on every college campus I've been on. [But] it isn't just the No. 1 issue in fraternities and sororities. It's the number one issue for all students.
In the meantime Alcohol produces a delightful social atmosphere that nothing else can produce.(Enoch) Arnold Bennett

It is clear to me that my life has become completely unmanageable because I am addicted to Alcohol and drugs. Recently, I relapsed and did things for which I am ashamed. I broke the law, and today I took responsibility by pleading guilty to the charges in my case.lindsay lohan
It keeps you fit - the Alcohol, nasty women, sweat on stage, bad food - it's all very good for you.bon scott
The hallucinogens produce visionary states, sort of, but morphine and its derivatives decrease awareness of inner processes, thoughts and feelings. They are pain killers; pure and simple. They are absolutely contraindicated for creative work, and I include in the lot Alcohol, morphine, barbiturates, tranquilizers the whole spectrum of sedative drugs.William S. Burroughs
Our national drug is Alcohol. We tend to regard the use of any other drug with special horror.William S. Burroughs

Orientation in time, space, and status are the essentials of social existence, and the Balinese, although they make very strong spirits for ceremonial occasions, with a few startling exceptions resist Alcohol, because if one drinks one loses one's orientation. Orientation is felt as a protection rather than as a strait jacket and its loss provokes extreme anxiety.Margaret Mead
Freezing concentrates sugar (maple sugar), Alcohol, and salt solutions as efficiently as heating distils water or Alcohol from solutions. Open pans of maple sugar can have the surface ice removed regularly (each day) until a sugar concentrate remains. Salts in water, and Alcohol in ferment liquors can be concentrated in the same way.bill mollison

But just as it sometimes happens that the most temperate people, who have never acquired the habit of drinking Alcohol, or even a taste for it, are tormented by the fear that somehow or other they will one day find themselves drunk, so Isabelle perpetually feared that she might be betrayed into an impulsive act that was destructive to such order as reason had imposed on life. Therefore she was forever running her faculty of analysis over in her mind with the preposterous zeal of an adolescent running a razor over his beardless chin.rebecca west
The effects of mescalin or LSD can be, in some respects, far more satisfying than those of Alcohol. To begin with, they last longer; they also leave behind no hangover, and leave the mental faculties clear and unimpaired. They stimulate the faculties and produce the ideal ground for a peak experience.colin wilson
So one day at a friend's party, where there was plenty of Alcohol, I decided to do a portrait of someone. And from there it just grew.
Note: Ratigan's henchman Bartholomew falls into some Alcohol and emerges very drunk and calls his boss "the world's greatest rat". Since Ratigan hates being called a rat and prefers the term of "a big mouse", he sentences him to death at the hands of his pet cat, who eats him up while he's still drunkenly singing of Ratigan's glory, unaware of what is about to happen despite Ratigan telling him.
Nationalism is like cheap Alcohol: First, it makes you drunk, then it makes you blind, and then it kills you.".
Fugue states or severe headaches prior to or after overt necrophilic behavior have also been reported. Coupled with the fact that Alcohol (one of the factors associated with necrophilia) can induce temporal lobe abnormalities, and that temporal lobe abnormalities are associated with a number of other paraphilias , it may be reasonable to deduce that temporal lobe anomalies may be responsible for some instances of necrophilia.
