    Interesting facts. This is likely due to stress from America's deteriorating quality of life.

    My boyfriend and I almost never drink since we can't stand the taste of alcohol. I honestly don't see the appeal in it. I drank in college and nothing good ever came about it. However, we do like us some ganja, mon!

    Metta, you are a breathing example of hypocrisy.

    In another topic, you're promoting drinking Heineken Beer to resolve problems.

    Drinking a beer or a glass of wine a day can be healthy. Drinking in excess is what is unhealthy.

    Wonder if it is any higher among gay men. It always seemed there were a lot - but then I would never have imagined that 1/8 of USA is alcoholic.

    I'd rather die sooner with my brain intact:

    (CNN)Drinking in moderation can help our health, some research has showed. Many doctors recommend a glass of wine or beer a night as part of diet plans such as the Mediterranean diet and the DASH diet, which have been proven to keep your heart and brain healthy. However, a new study suggests that even moderate drinking may not be great for your brain.
