Is there ever a good reason to get blinding drunk?
No, there is no reason for anybody let alone myself to get “blindingly” drunk. Why? Because when the facts are boiled down, no person should consume so much alcohol because as it wears on and they become more intoxicated it becomes an even more selfish act. I am lead to inform you that not all, but quite a few of the vast number of cases I have handled in the past leading up to the ones I am working on now have been caused as a direct result of alcohol. If the stuff didn’t exist my job would be a lot more easier but, it does and although you may disagree with what I say next, really, I don’t give a damn. If alcohol didn’t exist then even though my job would be a heck of a lot easier I also wouldn’t have a job or much of it anyway because the amount of homicide and quite possibly suicide victims would suffer a dramatic reduction in numbers. It is people’s choice to drink alcoholic beverages and then to deal with the results and what happens at the end, it’s my job to clean up after them and piece together what happened if anything goes wrong.
If people die with some connection to alcohol, whether it be drink driving, turning a gun on someone while under the influence, whatever way the death happens it does not matter. I deal with it; if they did not die I would not. It is not my fault for taking this view, that if people die because of alcohol it keeps me in a job because it does. I am not grateful for it, I do not enjoy the fact that people are stupid enough to go that far but at the end of the day the facts are there and it does no matter how you go about it. Despite the fact that our police service does everything it can to warn people of the risks of alcohol they still die, everyday quite possibly, all around the world. We do everything we can to prevent alcohol related deaths from happening, the people who drink and die, who in the end wind up as these statistics we try to show them, there is no going back from that. It is simply their actions, their own fault.
Going back to the original question, I’m not going to because I’ve explained more than enough on why no person should become so idiotic. What separates the responsible and living from the alcohol related deaths is knowledge. I myself have never been drunk, I am responsible for my actions, I have never joined in a silly drinking competition yet I still manage to drink alcohol and stay alive. I like my brandy straight and in a shot glass, yet unlike those who I see everyday on the autopsy table because they had one drink to many or got the end of someone who had I have the knowledge they didn’t.
