    2. Alcohol dehydrates you: it does not quench thirst, it makes thirst worst. Alcohol is also extremely high in empty calories.
    3. Drinking alcohol while you are pregnant can cause permanent brain damage and often causes physical deformations in babies. FAS and PFAS (formerly FAE) are devastating disorders that often render their victims unable to function is society or to care for them selves in socially acceptable ways; many of these children grow up to commit suicide or end up living in the criminal justice system.

A "hang over" is what happens when your body enters alcohol withdraw and the head aches you get are caused by extreme dehydration of your brain - your brain is literally being pulled away from your skull, leading to throbbing aches and sharp pains at attachment points like the temples and base of the neck.

    I absolutely agree with my brother. Apart from these ill-effects of alcohol, what is an unbearable thing is in the recent movies, showing boozing as part of commedy. Is it not possible to create a decent commedy scene ? Any Vadivelu or Vivek (not to offend them or their fans) commedy comes with only a boozing scene. Were there not decent commedies like Nagesh or Thangavelu ? I guess the producers must relook about this.

    Here is a translation of what Thiruvalluvar says about கள்ளுண்ணாமை in the Kural.

    Chapter 93: Avoidance of Drunkenness

    Kural 921
    Those who crave intoxicating drink each day
    will never be feared and never find fame.

    Kural 922
    Do not drink liquor. If some wish to, let it be those
    who have no wish for the esteem of exemplary men.

    Kural 923
    The sight of a drunken man's revelry is unbearable
    even to his own mother. How, then, must it appear to the wise?

    Kural 924
    The virtuous damsel called Decency will turn her back
    on men who indulge in the vile vice called drunkenness.

    Kural 925
    Spending one's wealth to purchase self-oblivion
    results from being oblivious to proper conduct.

    Kural 926
    Those who always sleep are akin to the dead.
    Those who constantly drink are like men who take poison.

    Kural 927
    The drooping eyes of those who secretly drink betray that secret,
    evoking their neighbor's relentless ridicule.

    Kural 928
    Stop denying, "I never drink," for next time you drink,
    your mind's hidden deception will be betrayed then and there.

    Kural 929
    One may as well carry a candle under water to search for
    a drowned man as use reason to sober a drunk drowned in drink.

    Kural 930
    Why can't the drunkard who, when sober, sees another's drunken
    stupor realize the degrading shame of his own drunkenness?
