  1. I can give a shorter answer:
    Don’t get drunk!

  2. Joanna Schroeder says:

    I like #5. Such good advice!

    Particularly in the age of camera phones. Every day I say a little prayer to something/someone that there were no camera phones when I was drinking.

  3. I read and couldn’t believe my eyes. Mr. Bowman, most of your lines what actually are doing is motivating people to drink! Unbelievable. Comedian, fundraiser, storyteller… so forth. But a pretty bad statistic reader on alcoholism. What I can say to your readers, as a writer, psychologist, sociologist and professor is just what Mr. Alberich said with common sense: DON’T GET DRUNK… EVER!

      Hi Reylan,
      You say you are a “writer, psychologist, sociologist and professor.” That is wonderful. But you forgot to mention “pedantic internet commenter” and “humorless stickler.”

      Let’s discuss all of your wonderful qualities, while we’re at it.

  4. “Don’t get drunk” is great advice… for your 15 year old children. (Younger in many, many cases, I know. My first time was 17)

    People will drink. It’s a fact. And people will get drunk. It’s what alcohol does. This article is for the people who DO drink (clearly,) and

    I would be no more swayed by this article encouraging responsibly consuming irresponsible amounts of alcohol thank I would being ordered to not get drunk.

    Also allow me to say as someone who does not abide being talked down to, stating your position by first listing all the things that make you smarter than me isn’t a good way to get your point across. If you have to tell me your opinion is more important I probably disagree.
