Actually, this question is specifically in response to something I once heard a college professor say. He said when drinking alcohol, if you feel even the slightest bit tipsy, you have already caused brain damage. I forget his exact words (this was quite a while ago, BTW). But it was words to that effect. Once you feel the slightest effect, you have brain damage.
He then went on to say, there are many better ways to get a natural, healthy high, like thru running (oh, sure:p).
Anyways, it was clearly a cryptic reference. But does anyone here know what he was referring to? It really has me worried, even now. I don’t usually drink to excess. But still, we have have that slight buzz. Even after one drink, or maybe two.
Also, you realize, as soon as you smoke one cigarette, or have one drink–or even just yawn–you are potentially killing off billions of brain cells. Simply put, we all are born with far more brain cells than when we die. So I assume he meant even one drink can cause substantial(?) brain damage.
Please answer soon. As I said, this one still has me worried.
