That is pure wisdom! I wish all those nasty, but unaware, drinkers out there in the world could attain such enlightenment?

That NY Times link does not work, I was able to find it but did not read it completely.

If I had a choice between being prescribed blood thinners or drinking alcohol moderately? Guess what, from all the side effects and credibility and track record of health care professionals, guess what I would choose.

I don't trust pharmaceutical companies, i don't trust health providers, i don't trust the media on what is ' HEALTHY ' for the average American (or viewer in case they are not living in the USA)

While all the ' Non Alcoholics ' were dying of Bubonic Plague, all the alcoholics survived.

"Moderate Drinking May Help Prevent Blood Clots"....

I may win the lottery this week...

I may become as good a guitar as Clapton by the end of the month...

I may buy a Ferrari this week...

Scientists may find a cure for coronavirus by August...

You get the idea...

You and I MAY live until tomorrow.

Everything is a crap shoot, and that's what they found out when they discovered Quantum Mechanics.

Playing like Clapton or owning a Ferrari are far different than heart disease, blood clots and strokes.

Typically I take medical advice with a grain of salt but I’ve discovered that a big part of alcoholism is psychological; addiction tends to make people dubious to advice that tells them they need to change their habits. That goes with anything - not just alcohol. All I know about alcohol is that if others see how much you drink and say “maybe you should slow it down” then you probably should find something better to put in your body.

By the way, I find that I hate the way I feel after drinking white wines. I much prefer reds - and in moderation.
