It is poison to the alcoholic; however, billions of people are able to have a drink or two and be done with it. They don't give it a second thought. Alcohol, or the devil, for that matter, is only as powerful as you allow them to be.

it is a truly haunting documentary. I sought it out in early 2007 thinking if anything would stop me drinking, that was it. And yes, it terrified me. but not enough. I have foggy memories of trying to follow the one woman's drunken ramblings with a scotch (or several hundred) in my hand, weeping while the one guy died, and just sitting horrified at the deathbed scenes of that young lady. Dear God.

I am still haunted by the death of that 26 year old woman.

I recommend this for anyone interested in documentaries. It is in 10 parts (about 90 minutes total) on YouTube.

I am watching the series and wow , terrifying is all I can say. I have gratitude to have the idea my own drinking must stop while I have some health left. This takes the extra step beyond the google images of all the late stage ends the poison brings.
