You know that I?ve been drunk a thousand times,and these should be the best days of my life,
If you?ve been in your town centre on a friday or saturday night then you?ll see large groups of 18-30s drinking alcohol. Fair enough, they?re old enough and have worked hard during the week so they?re entitled to relax. But what about the increase in binge drinking? Those levels of drinking are the cause of many other ills of society, such as violence, vandelism, sex attacks, but what about the other ill-effects? What about the harm to your relationships and what about the harm to yourself?. Physically and mentally?
This brings me to my little poser today. Obviously the blame for drinking too much lies first with the individual but it must also lie with the suppliers, the pubs and clubs, but what about the people like me who serve the drinks?
I am on the frontline and actually see the results of alcohol consumption. Last night I was at the pub and first one guy punched another guy whom he thought was insulting his girlfriend, and then their girlfriends got into a argument in the toilets. Luckily I went in there [pervert] and tried to get them to calm down upon which they broke into a fight which I had to separate. They hadn?t drunk a huge amount but the friction of too many people drinking caused it.
I also see those quiet drinkers who are in there everyday drinking large amounts, and no doubt doing themselves harm.
In other areas of life I try to be ethical and moral?.but what about this area? I?ve worked in bars for 5 years, have seen what alcohol does, but I still work there. Technically I am a drug dealer.
Is it morally right to work in the alcohol industry when I see what harm it causes?
