It's OK Not to Drink

Here's a list for those who need it:

Don't drive while drunk or 'buzzed.'

Don't drive while high on any kind of drugs (including prescription medicine).

Don't drive while sleepy.

Don't text, take selfies, play video games, or watch videos while driving.

Don't reach back to hit a kid while driving.

Don't drive while angry and try to express your emotions by driving carelessly and screeching your tires.

Don't make a video of yourself singing or performing in any other way while driving.

Don't hold your breath while driving.

Don't apply makeup, shave, put on pantyhose, or change your clothing while driving.

Don't steer with your belly or your sexual organs.

Don't have sex with others or yourself while driving.

Don't go over the speed limit unless it's temporarily necessary to avoid an accident.

It all boils down to "don't drive while distracted or impaired." Pay attention, keep your hands on the wheel and just drive. You can goof around after you get where you are going so you won't end up turning yourself and others into pavement pizza.

Duane Alan Hahn

#ad When You TEXT and DRIVE You Gamble With MY LIFE

I made a commitment to completely cut out drinking and anything that might hamper me from getting my mind and body together. And the floodgates of goodness have opened upon me, spiritually and financially.

Denzel Washington

Alcohol impairs calcium absorption by affecting the liver's ability to activate vitamin D. Vitamin D is important in the metabolism of calcium. The more alcohol you drink, the more you hinder your body's ability to build up and maintain healthy bones.

From Living Health (#ad) by Harvey & Marilyn Diamond

Fun without challenge, without inner satisfaction, often comes from surrogate motivators influencing one's actions and perceptions. More often than not, something like this is considered 'fun' because it is a lack of 'pain,' be it social, physical, or psychological pain. For example, if you are programmed with social expectations that drinking and partying are key steps in securing one's self-worth, and that not having a bar life makes one lame and unaccepted, then one can squander away much of life in a drunken stupor, blissfully thinking all is fun with this programmed lifestyle.


There is this to be said in favor of drinking, that it takes the drunkard first out of society, then out of the world.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

It is easier to stay out than get out.

Mark Twain

Texting & Driving (Full Length)

Pleasure which must be enjoyed at the expense of another's pain, can never be enjoyed by a worthy mind. Pleasure's couch is virtues grave.

Augustine J. Duganne

Drunkenness is nothing but voluntary madness.

Seneca the Younger

I have been brought up and trained to have the utmost contempt for people who get drunk.

Winston Churchill

Am I self-righteous? Why not? It's not like I can count on you to be righteous for me.

Henry Rollins

One reason I don't drink is that I want to know when I'm having a good time.

Nancy Astor

Water is the only drink for a wise man.

Henry David Thoreau

#ad Don't Drive Unless You're Sober

If you need an excuse for why you don't drink alcohol, you could say that addiction runs in your family and you don't want to try it even once because you may not stop until you are dead in a puddle of your own vomit or smashed into the side of a mini-van with children's body parts scattered around your corpse.

Duane Alan Hahn

First the man takes a drink; then the drink takes a drink; then the drink takes the man.

Japanese Proverb

If you've ever taken alcohol into your body, you have very little will to live. The body was not meant to intake alcohol. It impairs the mind.

God from Conversations with God (Book 1) (#ad) through Neale Donald Walsch (adapted)

Shag Evil Alcohol Sticker

There's no time, I don't care what happens, that drinking makes anything better. It never makes anything better. It always makes it worse and drinking always makes any event seem a hundred times worse than it actually is.

Don Imus on Imus in the Morning (October 24, 2011)

Wine hath drowned more men than the sea.

Thomas Fuller

Is "all things in moderation" your motto? Really? Razorblade to your wrist in moderation? Slam your penis in a car door in moderation? Salad fork plunged into your eye in moderation? I don't follow that old, tired saying. It's too easy to become an alcoholic. Too easy to believe that you need a drink to cope, especially when movies and TV shows like Bewitched pounded the "I need a drink" catchphrase into our brains since childhood.

We make a ladder for ourselves out of our vices when we trample them.

St. Augustine

Alcohol can ruin your life and the lives of others, so why even take one drink?

Duane Alan Hahn

Man's natural character is to imitate; that of the sensitive man is to resemble as closely as possible the person whom he loves. It is only by imitating the vices of others that I have earned my misfortunes.

Marquis de Sade

Alcohol doesn't console, it doesn't fill up anyone's psychological gaps, all it replaces is the lack of God.

Marguerite Duras

People who drink to drown their sorrow should be told that sorrow knows how to swim.

Ann Landers

People who drink to medicate their pain are bad enough, but 'party' drinkers who get drunk for 'fun' are the worst because they only think of their own pleasure. That would be fine if they were alone, but they almost always involve someone else. They don't really care what they do to their children, spouses, lovers, relatives, friends or total strangers they may maim or kill on the roads, as long as they're having fun.

An impaired mind is an unprepared mind.

Duane Alan Hahn

Alcoholism isn't a spectator sport. Eventually the whole family gets to play.

Joyce Rebeta-Burditt

A few years back I was more a candidate for skid row bum than an Emmy. If I hadn't stopped [drinking], I'd be playing handball with John Belushi right now.

John Larroquette

Of all vices, drinking is the most incompatible with greatness.

Sir Walter Scott

No cause is helpless if it is just. Errors, no matter how popular, carry the seeds of their own destruction.

John W. Scoville

When some men lose their jobs, instead of learning new skills to find new and better jobs, they think to themselves, "I'm not a man without my job. I'm a bad husband and father because I can't support my family." Their own negative thinking causes depression and they start drinking. Many of them even abuse the family they were so concerned about before. If they can find the time and money for booze binges and beatings, they can find the time and money for a little training and education.

Duane Alan Hahn

Alcohol is a good preservative for everything but brains.

Mary Pettibone Poole

A drinker has a hole under his nose that all his money runs into.

Thomas Fuller

I come from a family that had an alcoholic and a binge drinker in it. Drinking and smoking helped kill my grandfather at age 70 and also helped kill my abusive first stepfather who died at the age of 45. It also took many years for me to overcome the flashbacks from my childhood. I lived it. I know the truth. Drinking has no place in the home.

Duane Alan Hahn

Don't Drink and Drive Help Save Lives

I used to be a drunk driver, and yes, I drank and drove even after my licence was suspended for a DUI. The reason I drove drunk so many times was because it was fun. When a person is drunk they do not have the ability to make a decision based on anything other than "will this be fun or not?" The reason I quit drinking was because I knew I could not stop myself from driving drunk. I gave up my love and passion for alcohol to make the roads safer because I was terrified I was going to kill someone. I don't miss the alcohol at all, and I don't miss the feeling every morning waking up thinking I could have killed someone the night before.

Killing someone whether you intend to or not is an antisocial act, drinking is antisocial behavior (even if you are only a so-called 'social drinker'), so killing people with your car because you are drunk is very antisocial (it's almost like strapping a bomb to your chest and detonating it in a public place). I think people who are caught drinking and driving should be thrown in jail until they die, because there is no other way to stop them. I was fortunate to be able to see how my behavior was affecting society and to be able to make the decision to stop (and follow through with it). I have been sober almost a year and the most terrifying thing in my life is driving home from work every night at midnight and being so scared that the person driving toward me in the other lane is hammered that I practically pull over and stop.

In Case You Didn't Know


Trump's Jab = Bad

Did you know that Trump's rushed experimental rona jab has less than one percent overall benefit? It also has many possible horrible side effects. Some brainwashed rona jab cultists claim that there are no victims of the jab, but person after person will post what the jab did to them, a friend, or a family member on web sites such as Facebook and Twitter and they'll be lucky if they don't get banned soon after. Posting the truth is “misinformation” don't you know. Awakened sheep might turn into lions, so powerful people will do just about anything to keep the sheep from waking up.

H Word and I Word = Good

Take a look at my page called The H Word and Beyond. You might also want to look at my page called Zinc and Quercetin. My sister and I have been taking those two supplements since summer of 2020 in the hopes that they would scare away the flu and other viruses (or at least make them less severe).



B Vitamins = Good

Some people appear to have a mental illness because they have a vitamin B deficiency. For example, the wife of a guy I used to chat with online had severe mood swings which seemed to be caused by food allergies or intolerances. She would became irrational, obnoxious, throw tantrums, and generally act like she had a mental illness. The horrid behavior stopped after she started taking a vitamin B complex. I've been taking Jarrow B-Right (#ad) for many years. It makes me much easier to live with.



Soy = Bad

Unfermented soy is bad! “When she stopped eating soy, the mental problems went away.” Fermented soy doesn't bother me, but the various versions of unfermented soy (soy flour, soybean oil, and so on) that are used in all kinds of products these days causes a negative mental health reaction in me that a vitamin B complex can't tame. The sinister encroachment of soy has made the careful reading of ingredients a necessity.



Wheat = Bad

If you are overweight, have type II diabetes, or are worried about the condition of your heart, check out the videos by Ken D Berry, William Davis, and Ivor Cummins. It seems that most people should avoid wheat, not just those who have a wheat allergy or celiac disease. Check out these books: Undoctored (#ad), Wheat Belly (#ad), and Eat Rich, Live Long (#ad).



Negative Ions = Good

Negative ions are good for us. You might want to avoid positive ion generators and ozone generators. A plain old air cleaner is better than nothing, but one that produces negative ions makes the air in a room fresher and easier for me to breathe. It also helps to brighten my mood.



Litterbugs = Bad

Never litter. Toss it in the trash or take it home. Do not throw it on the ground. Also remember that good people clean up after themselves at home, out in public, at a campsite and so on. Leave it better than you found it.



Climate Change Cash Grab = Bad

Seems like more people than ever finally care about water, land, and air pollution, but the climate change cash grab scam is designed to put more of your money into the bank accounts of greedy politicians. Those power-hungry schemers try to trick us with bad data and lies about overpopulation while pretending to be caring do-gooders. Trying to eliminate pollution is a good thing, but the carbon footprint of the average law-abiding human right now is actually making the planet greener instead of killing it.

How to Wake Up Normies

Charlie Robinson had some good advice about waking up normies (see the link to the video below). He said instead of verbally unloading or being nasty or acting like a bully, ask the person a question. Being nice and asking a question will help the person actually think about the subject.

Distracted Driving Links



By Duane Alan Hahn (March 30, 2013)

"Look at that girl on TV! I'd hit that!" said Billy's daddy. Billy replied "You hit everybody when you're drunk, Daddy." Billy giggled as his daddy chased behind. Then 'Daddy' beat Billy until most of Billy's blood was no longer on the inside. Billy's gurgling screams for his mommy went ignored. She was high again. Since energy cannot be destroyed, Billy's spirit roams the house crying for his mommy, but she cannot hear him and never will.



Wake Up!

Opinion by Duane Alan Hahn

If you refuse to drink alcohol and you refuse to take drugs, you can have all of the fame and money in the world and manage to stay fairly sane. No need for rehab, prison, or an untimely eternal nap in a musty coffin.

Kill Your Ego

If You Don't Try It You Can't Get Hooked

Opinion by Duane Alan Hahn

Kill your ego. Kill the pathetic desire to look 'cool' or adult. Kill the craving for approval from groups who want you to destroy your own health to fit in. Instead of following misguided sheep, tell them that they can follow you instead.
