The topic alcohol brings many things to mind. In my immediate family the only people that drink any type of alcohol are my mother and father. When my dad comes home from work he usually has a beer for a little relaxation and my mom has a glass of wine for dinner. I feel that they are moderate drinkers and I also feel that it sets a good example for my brother and I. If we hadn't gone over this topic in class I would never have known what type of drinkers they were. Now that I think of it I have one relative who has not always lived the good life. If I was writing this paper 8 years ago my aunt Ann would be drinking very heavily right now. That's because she was an Alcoholic. She was in very bad shape for a while until we found her a place to get rehabilitated. During those hard times her husband had to take care of the kids so she wouldn't put bad images into their heads. Now she has recovered and life is great. I was very concerned for her safety and Now that I learned from my notes there are so many things wrong with heavy drinking and that the consequences are to severe I won't do what she did. A couple of other relatives that I have are my uncles. One time me, my father, and two of my uncles went to a bar. Everyone had a alcoholic beverage except me. As time went on my two uncles got pretty wasted and were creating a scene. I felt very uncomfortable and wondered if they knew exactly how stupid they looked. In the future when I am older and have kids of my own I will remember how my father drank in moderation and I will do the same. Unlike my Aunt and two Uncles.
In many households all over the world people are sucking tar, smoke, nicotine, and other harmful ingredients from cigarettes down into their lungs. In class you talked about how over time you could develop cancer and other lung aliments which will cut short your time on this planet. I definitely don't want that to happen. No one in my family smokes but I do have friends who do. I keep telling my friends how it's going to kill them but they don't listen. They keep giving me answers like "you have to die sometime" or "I'm not sick right now so who cares." I tell them that their family and friends care but they just ignore me. I know that I need to stay away from cigarettes and cigars because I play sports like golf and I love to ride my bike. If I started to smoke it would decrease my performance of whatever I was doing. That wouldn't be smart because if I ran track the effects of my smoking could cause me to lose a race. Another effect it would have would have on my life is my breath and clothes would smell of smoke and that might make it hard to get a date. Also you said that smoking detererates and the voice box and pops the alveoli in your lungs. That would mean there is a chance of me loosing my voice. If I couldn't talk then I would probably go insane.
