Regarding Drinking alcohol

Sure, I enjoy having a drink. I have a couple of drinks every night, but stop before I get drunk, unlike some people who drink themselves motherless every night! People say that drinking is not good for your health and liver! 1) If you drink responsibly, it doesn t damage your health and liver. In fact, coming to the health point now; if you drink responsibly, it reduces your stress-level, therefore reducing your chances to get a heart attack; extending your life! 2) Also some drinks such as Whiskey, cleans your blood from poisenous stuff, such as Blood Platelets sticking to each other; increasing your chance of a heart attack But, continuous over-drinking will damage your health, because it will mess up the normal cycle of your body and will damage organs and cells! So, in my case having a drink is fine, providing you don t get motherlessly drunk. I recommend then drinking responsibly and have a non-alcoholic drink afterwards! What do you think of my theory?

I think you are trying to justify this to yourself so you dont feel so bad about drinking every night!
