Sobering thoughts

Two letters to the editor of the Wall Street Journal give reasons to avoid alcohol:

  • One writer cites physicist Richard Feynman as his inspiration. “[H]e stopped drinking when he realized that alcohol interfered with his most pleasurable activity: thinking”
  • A psychiatrist recommends abstinence so patients can better understand their underlying emotions. “Even… one or two drinks per day [can have] negative effects on a variety of experiences. I… find that my colleagues… underestimate… the subtle negative effects of moderate drinking on their… patients,” due to their own drinking habits
