Alcohol Argument

Extracts from this document...


Alcohol Arshad Bhoyroo My fellow citizens, I stand here today in order to express my views of the growing concern that is destroying our civilization at a global scale, alcohol. At a time when our community strives during tides of prosperity and the still waters of peace, alcohol has rapidly taken us amidst gathering clouds and raging storms. Alcohol has lead to some of the worst problems that our society has ever experience. For example, out of 1,000 adults, 47 are likely to be dependent on alcohol; this is double the amount of people who are dependent on illegal drugs.
