Alcohol abuse not good for us

2017-05-11 06:02

It’s worrying that some people resort to heavy drinking when they experience difficulties in life.

But that’s not the solution because how will you resolve your problems if you are drunk?

I take my hat off to people who don’t give up on life, irrespective of the difficulties they face along the way.

I doubt if there’s anyone who has ever resolved his or her problems while under the influence of alcohol.

People, heavy drinking will make your life dysfunctional.

It will also affect the lives of your family members badly.

Heavy drinking won’t get you a job.

It won’t fix your marriage, it won’t make your kids and partner respect you, and it won’t suddenly build a house for you.

One thing that unemployed people can’t afford is self-pity.

No one will come to your home, take you by the hand and say here is a job for you.

You need to stand up, get out there and be seen and counted.

People, beggars can’t be choosers.

It’s better to try and generate income instead of spending the whole day at a shebeen. You can start a small business, or try and get piece jobs to survive.

We were created to fend for ourselves, and that’s why we feel good when we achieve something in life.

You can’t be an alcoholic and also be proud of yourself. It’s time to wake up and smell the coffee.’n People, don’t give up on life.
