I was on the bus back home last week and I was seated next to this fairly young man who smelled funky (not in a nice way) and had bloodshot eyes. He got on board the bus with a big plastic bag of.. beer cans.

As the bus started to move, I moved to the unoccupied seats. And he started to open can after can after can after can. All 1.5 hours trip to Niah. And I thought to myself, "See you in the hospital in a few years, mate." Because I'm not kidding. I've seen cases of liver damage due to alcohol. There was one time when the bleeding wouldn't stop. There was nothing else to give. When it's that bad, you're only talking about a year or so. 35% chance of surviving 2 years if you're lucky.

So, if you're drinking a little too much, think again.
