Another study from America’s Journal of Men’s Healthdiscovered that male undergrad students reference alcohol in their profiles 85.53% of the time. Those who mentioned alcohol in their profiles also tended to have more friends than those who didn’t, according to the study.
The parents of a 15-year-old boy who died last fall after drinking a controversial beverage that combined caffeine and alcohol sued the Chicago-based manufacturer on Thursday. The parents of John “Bo” Donald Rupp, III, sued Phusion Projects, maker of Four Loko, for their son’s September 26, 2010 death, alleging that Phusion knew the product was dangerous and targeted underage drinkers. The Rupps say that Bo became confused and drunk after drinking two cans of Four Loko, wandered into a highway in suburban Washington, D.C. and was hit by a car.
It was no dream. I had created a nightmare for myself and my family. I now realize how lucky I was to have been found and taken to the hospital. Many children do not recover from acute alcohol poisoning because friends do not realize how dangerous and deadly it can be and think that the drinker can just “sleep it off.” My parents and I were called to the police station and were informed of the legal issues surrounding my decision to drink.
when she walked in the bathroom where she found me lying on the floor in my own vomit. So she tried to wake me up but i didnt budge. She called 911 and they took me to the hospital.

But anyways the doctors told me I didnt have a pulse and that i had REALLY high blood pressure and I almost died.. I was really close.
Binge drinking too often is a part of college capers, much as portrayed in the movie. Nationally, four out of 10 students admit to binge drinking at least once a week. At Purdue, 37 percent of the students admit to binge drinking. Three percentage points are hardly a difference about which to brag.
The grim toll our booze culture is taking on health is revealed by Health Research Board researchers in the journal ‘Alcohol and Alcoholism’. They found the rate of liver disease and deaths went from 28.3 per 100000 adults in 1995 to 82.2 in 2007
I was raised in a household that has always been very accepting of alcohol. My parents have always let me drink freely (of course, as long as it’s in moderation). I know a lot of parents probably look down on this method, but I honestly think it has made a huge impact on the way I live my life. I…
Did you know that excessive alcohol consumption is responsible for an average of 79,000 deaths in the United States each year? More than half of these deaths are due to binge drinking. Binge drinking also is associated with a wide range of other health and social problems, including sexually transmitted diseases, unintended pregnancy and violent crime.
Such is the never-ending story of alcohol poisoning in the United States, as described in those real newspaper headlines above. The last one is the exception, sort of. Some form of it is repeated somewhere every year. Usually many times.
Alcohol Poisoning is a condition of the body where enough ethanol (drinkable alcohol) is present in the body to cause a lack of inhibition, ataxia (loss of muscle coordination), and some changes behavior, like slurred speech. The term is often referred by its commonplace names, inebriation and being drunk. Alcohol poisoning, depending on its severity, can cause harm to the body and can often be visibly detected in a person.
I’ll probably lose all my followers. But drugs and alcohols are definitely not fine. It hurts you :/ I mean, maybe alcohol is OKAY occasionally ( like with family ). But definitely no drugs. I’ve just seen many people who got trashed because of those stupid drugs. Please don’t do it or drink alcohol too much. Life can be fun without them, you know.
