Our teenage “druggies” are habituated to drugs rather than addicted. While beer and other alcoholic beverages are preferred drugs, kids have simply not used alcohol long enough to become addicted. The other drug of preference – marijuana – is not addictive.
Today, we will hear from federal law enforcement agencies, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, who will discuss the problem of ELF and ALF and law enforcement's reaction to their dangerous and destructive tactics. It is these tactics, particularly the widespread use of arson, which makes ELF and ALF the #1 domestic terror concern over the likes of white supremacists, militias, and anti-abortion groups.james inhofe
I was told when a young man that the two occupational hazards of the Palace of Varieties were Alcohol and adultery. The hurroosh that follows the intermittent revelation of the sexual goings-on of an unlucky MP has convinced me that the only safe pleasure for a parliamentarian is a bag of boiled sweets.SirJulian Michael Gordon Critchley
There are those who prefer to get away inwardly, some with the help of a powerful imagination and an ability to abstract themselves from their surroundings?some with the help of opium or Alcohol? I prefer shifting my whole body to shifting my brain, and going round the world to letting my head go round.Alexander Ivanovich Herzen
"In church I was told that if I so much as smoked a cigarette or tasted Alcohol, I’d be damned in hell for all eternity[...]it didn’t take long for me to start thinking that sounded all wrong [...]I didn’t cotton to the idea that your religion should be flaunted to other people. Your religion is for you, and is best kept close to your heart."willie nelson
When I was young I hated my body because it was so thin -- now I try not to look at it too much because it's so old.

When you're as hollow as Enoch Kane, the emptiness aches. He's desperate to fill it, but he doesn't have the patience or the commitment to fill it with anything worthwhile… So a man like Kane obsesses on one thing after another sex, money, food, power, drugs, Alcohol anything that seems to give meaning to his days, but that requires no real self-discovery or self-sacrifice.dean r. koontz
Only someone as puffed up and demented as John Maynard Keynes, every left wing fascist's sainted mentor in this connection, could manage to convince himself that taxing America's Productive Class can restore it to prosperity. In point of fact, it's like screwing for chastity, guzzling Alcohol for sobriety, or gorging to fight gluttony.

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.Anil Aggrawal, in Necrophilia: Forensic and Medico-legal Aspects, CRC Press, 15 December 2010, p.29
Being raised Catholic in a pressure-cooker household besieged by Alcohol and bill collectors enforced and heightened a sense of sentry duty in me, the oldest of five children and the one most responsible for keeping everything from capsizing.
