When I drink I think and when I think I drink-François Rabelais

“We drink one another’s health and spoil our own” Jerome K Jerome

We love everybody in this world

And you agree with me on this.

We wish and pray that everybody lives long, healthy and happy.

We wish that everybody is allowed by the Almighty to see their great-grandchildren and if possible their children too!

But then drinking one another’s health adds to the problem.

Can this be true that we drink one another’s health and spoil our own??

This can be understood in two ways.

1.In the alcoholic world.

2.In our family world.

In the alcoholic world

Are we drunkards?

Don’t we have self-control?

Don’t we have willpower?

Is there any chance that this quote telling the truth?

“First you take a drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes you” F. Scott Fitzgerald

In the family world

Probably it can mean that parents toil to give a better life to their children and then the grand children and……then their children…they may continue this in their 90s at the cost of their health just to see that everybody in the family tree is comfortable and we’ll settled.

” We grew up thinking that our parents did not understand our struggles but the truth is they made sure we never felt theirs” Unknown

Here parents are spoiling their health and happiness so that their offspring lead a decent life.

Is this for a selfish reason??

    Not sure if it is true. Some can’t live without drinking however we are social drinkers as a family.
