I wonder whether alcohol can be put into the same league as cocaine, heroin, meth, etc. It obviously depends on how much alcohol one consumes. For example, I have seen hard core alcoholics who were all dried out and shriveled up, with their brains obviously suffering from serious damage. They didn't seem all that different from meth addicts to me. I suppose it's a question of time. Some drugs turn you into a zombie in a short period of time, whereas others work slower. What are your thoughts on this?
