Advantages: good for social occasions and at party's ETC
Disadvantages: causes your personality to change and effects the people you love.
After nearly 14 and a half years i got in to contact with my father who I had been told about before i met him. I found his sister on facebook and ever since then i have remained in contact with him.
However on our first ever outing I was 14 at the time he turned up drunk with his girlfriend (they are not together anymore) he took me for something to it and then his girlfriend at the time suggested we go to the pub to meet her father me at the time was a little bit upset that he hadn't bothered to turn up sober for the occasion after all it was only the first time he has met me and all.
Ever since this i have continued to see him but he still drinks eccseivley his beverage is bacardi and coke he has no idea what this is doing to his health and everytime i confront him about the situation he just replys with "i have been to work all week" don't get me wrong he is a very hard worker as he is a full time butcher which means that he has to start most times at 4 in the morning till 3 in the afternoon. You may be thinking that he deserves the drink but the thing is that he doesn't eat at all during the sessions and he does sometimes becomes angry and aggressive and from what i have heard in the past violent. This is the main factor that destroyed my mothers relationship with him as before I met him she told me the horrible things he did to her whilst together. And most if not all his income off £250 per week goes on drinking and alcohol.
When he is sober and not had a drink he is the lovliest man in the world and it makes me proud to call him my dad he should be like this more.
Anyway alcohol effects the people you love and how they are around you, it also changes your personality and the way you are with people. I am no way condoning the fact that you shouldn't drink because personally I think that we all like a good drink when the oppurtunity is right but there are limits to how often.
Summary: alcohol is an antideppressent and you should becareful with it
