    Alcohol is a bad thing it is not good for your liver. Alcohol is bad for your brain your brain will get slower and slower. It may taste good but it is not good for your body. It's okay if your 21 and have it once and a while and don't have too much. You can get in alot of trouble if you drink alcohol especially if your under age. people who drink too much alcohol may slur there words. You may become sleepy or unconscious. You can also start vomiting. You may have trouble breathing, really low blood pressure, seizure and you can die. If you still go to school you won't be able to concentrate as well. Don't drink until you're at least 21!

    All of the above. It depends on use.

    Alcohol is a drug, and you just have to moderate it's dosage like any other. It can be good or even great if you are a moderate, occasional drinker. Wine and even beer can have some very nice health benifits, if you're only have a glass or a beer in a day.

    It also, obviously, can be terrible, if abused. Alcoholism, or even worse, drinking and driving, among other things, are all negative affects of not properly using it.

    Psalms 104:15 says that wine makes the heart rejoice.

    HOWEVER, abusing the gift of wine and other liquors by means of drunkeness is a bad thing. Eph 5:18 tells us this, as well as 1 Corinthians 6:10 says that drunkards will not inherit God's Kingdom, and Galatians 5:21 brings out that drunken bouts are not acceptable.

    See! the bible talks about everything! lol

    Depends on how you use it. A good thing when going out with friends or with dinner, a great thing to get you laid, and a bad thing when you don't know when to lay off of it.

    I think it's okay if used in moderation. But recently it was bad thing for me because I drank on an empty stomach and got real sick and don't plan on drinking again. But it's not a bad thing for everybody, as long as your 21 and up.

    a bad thing

    Well ask an old friend of mine after his liver transplant and he would say bad.

    Anything that alters your perspective could be considered bad.

    Being in control is a good thing.

    Drink wisely.
