Yes this substance generates billions to the economies around the world and gives jobs to the needy. But on the other side its the single biggest driver of many of human miseries of all times. to jst name a few.

- HIV aids
- Infidelity
- Road accidents
I ask why in the apartheid era black people where given permission to only acquire a limited stock of alcohol??? How many families have broken down as a direct result of alcohol, how many people contacted HIV because they indulged in unprotected sex while drunk?

Can man survive without alcohol???

Ok, I want to agree with you, but I find it very difficult. Let me quote from my expirience. I would not want to look very far and talk about people that I see from a distance, so I will use my own family for example.
1. My uncle who drinks like a fish is now an addict and he lost a chance to become a school principal because of alcohol.
2. My cousin's girlfriend cheated on him because she attended a year function party had a drink and ended up slipping away that way.
3. My cousin who is a tenderpreneur blew away R5 million and I can attribute it to stupid expenditures which i directly relate to alcohol. He was bragging that he doesnt drink under age he only drinks 21 yrs and older.
And what amazes me is all of them dont admit that alcohol had an influence in this.

So, your problem is that they must admit? Were you there and measured their drukness when they made decisions?

I agree with you KT. Alcohol make people do what they won't normally do when they are sober. I hear what Shoeshoe is saying but truth is that alcohol is a drug and can become addictive. People should be responsible for their action however, we cannot run away from the fact that alcohol also plays a big role in destroying lives once taken over the limit. Why do drivers have a limit of how many glasses they should take if they are going to drive?

@Sash,

I still need to meet a person who says alcohol doesnt affect their functionality in any manner, I assume when people say "" Ba bo nwela ka mpeng"" they actually mean it doesnt affect their mental capacity in any manner"".or am I wrong??

I think they assume you are generalising. However, the miss your point that alcohol is not good for people who cannot handle it. We agree that some people can handle alcohol but can the others live without drinking?

You are a champ in your own right and I think that You posses a rare talent which you can use to make money and to save the world. A lot of us dont want to admit to our shortfall and play big shots, but the reality is we fall victim to alcohol.

Golet,
listen to your statements when you say ""nd its very rare ho fumana ba etsa ntho tse sa lokang..."" and that is exactly my point to say those rare moments could be life threatning to put it bluntly.
