If You Need a Drink Don't Take It!

Even small amounts of alcohol impair efficiency. Though one motorist can drive safely with enough liquor in him to put another atop a lamp post, the Yale experts caution everyone to avoid the steering wheel for at least an hour after taking two ounces of whisky, two hours after four ounces, then to add an hour for each additional ounce.
However, the experts do not feel that well-motivated, moderate drinking is necessarily a bad habit. They contend that, in relaxing tension, it fulfills a psychological need. Moreover, there is no physiological or psychological ill effect from years of such drinking, whether it involves wine, beer, bonded whisky or fresh blends. Only admonition is: Whatever hard liquor you drink, dilute it.
There is nothing to the old belief that the more you drink the more you must drink to obtain the same degree of relaxation. Unlike the morphine addict, who at first might be killed by one grain and yet in time requires ten to feel like living, the drinker develops no tolerance for alcohol. He will need no more to relieve his tensions as time goes on, unless his tensions increase.
Dr. Howard W. Haggard, director of Yale's Laboratory of Applied Physiology, says moderate amounts of alcohol may aid digestion, although an excess will halt it. "For people past middle age it is one of the safest sedatives," he adds. "Many elderly people get much comfort from a small amount of alcohol; it relieves the aches, pains and chilliness of age, lessens the tensions and irritations and increases the appetite. It does not greatly affect normal blood pressure but it does prevent pressure from rising in anxiety and mental concentration."
However, any person who has reached the point where he wonders if he should discipline his drinking habits may be in the danger zone of excessive drinking. It is a confusing area. A man may fear he is an addict because his regular g p.m. drink has established such a habit pattern that he definitely wants a drink at that time. But habit does not necessarily imply addiction. Some genuinely heavy drinkers may be endangering their health, but are not yet addicts. On the
