10 Reasons Why I Drink
1. I love to Vomit.
2. It makes my children respect me.
3. My wife loves my whiskey breath and beer-bleary eyes.
4. Drunkards and saloon-keepers make the best citizens.
5. It helps me win the safe-driving award.
6. I want to encourage juvenile delinquency.
7. It helps me think more clearly.
8. It’s my way of saving money.
9. I hope to live in a ‘flophouse’ on Skid Row.
10. It’s my way of obeying God, Who says, “Wine is a mocker, strong drink
is raging and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.” – Proverbs 20:1
“I know when to stop!”
Sure. You’re smart. You can take it. You know when you’ve had enough.
That’s what every drunken bum said at one time. But the time to stop was
before he took the first drink. Now he’s lost his money, his home, his
family, his respect, his health. And his mind’s going. Visit him at 5th
and Wisconsin, or on the Skid Row of your city. See him begging for money.
Look at his eyes, his shaking fingers. Talk to him. He was a doctor, a
lawyer, a real estate broker, a college graduate, and athlete. Now he’s an
alcoholic. He didn’t want to be a wallflower. He wanted to sow his wild
oats. He got too big for Sunday School. He listened to an atheistic,
evolutionist, college professor educated beyond his intellegence. “The
Bible? Full of fairy tales. Read Tom Paine instead. Or Robert Ingersoll.
Or Eleanor Roosevelt. Or Harry Emerson Fosdick. Or sex books. You’re only
an animal. Live like one.”
Now look in the Mirror!
You are that person – 5, 10, 20 years from now – or sooner. Unless you
wake up. God declares, “Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”
Galations 6:7. You are on the toboggan. So is America. Americans drank
83 millions barrels of beer in 1 year. American spent in 1 year
$8,760,000,000 for intoxicating liquors against $5,010,236,000 for public
school education. Unless we stop, God will curse America!
