Certainly no aggression or suggestion I can or indded do drink to excess from me. Though in reading it on the forum here, I can see how it may come accross.
I was simply giving my response to your post regarding the program. One of a great number of biased shows that are aired on TV and Radio of late.
I am very sorry to hear of your losses, I have had my unfair share of those and point out that I am not ignorant of the results of excess drinking. Again, not something I stated or suggested I do.
I like a drink, I do not as such like the idea of us, that do partake in alcholic beverages, like yourself, to be frowned upon as social outcasts. Similar to that what smokers suffer. Programs like the one you mention just enforce non drinkers views that anyone who does like beer, wines or spirits is a Binge Drinking Drunken Fool. In addition, children could be led to believe (or rather brainwashed) into the wrong opinions on what might become the "A" word.
As one or two others have suggested, Balance and moderation.
I await my posts to be quoted and ripped apart by our English Teacher.
Maybe I should stick to asking and answering technical questions in the future.
