Here's a list for those who need it:
Don't drive while drunk or 'buzzed.'
Don't drive while high on any kind of drugs (including prescription medicine).
Don't drive while sleepy.
Don't text, take selfies, play video games, or watch videos while driving.
Don't reach back to hit a kid while driving.
Don't drive while angry and try to express your emotions by driving carelessly and screeching your tires.
Don't make a video of yourself singing or performing in any other way while driving.
Don't hold your breath while driving.
Don't apply makeup, shave, put on pantyhose, or change your clothing while driving.
Don't steer with your belly or your sexual organs.
Don't have sex with others or yourself while driving.
Don't go over the speed limit unless it's temporarily necessary to avoid an accident.
It all boils down to "don't drive while distracted or impaired." Pay attention, keep your hands on the wheel and just drive. You can goof around after you get where you are going so you won't end up turning yourself and others into pavement pizza.
Duane Alan Hahn
I made a commitment to completely cut out drinking and anything that might hamper me from getting my mind and body together. And the floodgates of goodness have opened upon me, spiritually and financially.
Alcohol impairs calcium absorption by affecting the liver's ability to activate vitamin D. Vitamin D is important in the metabolism of calcium. The more alcohol you drink, the more you hinder your body's ability to build up and maintain healthy bones.
From #ad Living Health by Harvey & Marilyn Diamond
Fun without challenge, without inner satisfaction, often comes from surrogate motivators influencing one's actions and perceptions. More often than not, something like this is considered 'fun' because it is a lack of 'pain,' be it social, physical, or psychological pain. For example, if you are programmed with social expectations that drinking and partying are key steps in securing one's self-worth, and that not having a bar life makes one lame and unaccepted, then one can squander away much of life in a drunken stupor, blissfully thinking all is fun with this programmed lifestyle.
There is this to be said in favor of drinking, that it takes the drunkard first out of society, then out of the world.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
It is easier to stay out than get out.

Pleasure which must be enjoyed at the expense of another's pain, can never be enjoyed by a worthy mind. Pleasure's couch is virtues grave.
Augustine J. Duganne
Drunkenness is nothing but voluntary madness.
Seneca the Younger
I have been brought up and trained to have the utmost contempt for people who get drunk.
Am I self-righteous? Why not? It's not like I can count on you to be righteous for me.
One reason I don't drink is that I want to know when I'm having a good time.
Water is the only drink for a wise man.
Henry David Thoreau
If you need an excuse for why you don't drink alcohol, you could say that addiction runs in your family and you don't want to try it even once because you may not stop until you are dead in a puddle of your own vomit or smashed into the side of a mini-van with children's body parts scattered around your corpse.
Duane Alan Hahn
First the man takes a drink; then the drink takes a drink; then the drink takes the man.
If you've ever taken alcohol into your body, you have very little will to live. The body was not meant to intake alcohol. It impairs the mind.
God from #ad Conversations with God (Book 1) through Neale Donald Walsch (adapted)
There's no time, I don't care what happens, that drinking makes anything better. It never makes anything better. It always makes it worse and drinking always makes any event seem a hundred times worse than it actually is.
Don Imus on Imus in the Morning (October 24, 2011)
Wine hath drowned more men than the sea.
Is "all things in moderation" your motto? Really? Razorblade to your wrist in moderation? Slam your penis in a car door in moderation? Salad fork plunged into your eye in moderation? I don't follow that old, tired saying. It's too easy to become an alcoholic. Too easy to believe that you need a drink to cope, especially when movies and TV shows like Bewitched pounded the "I need a drink" catchphrase into our brains since childhood.
Duane Alan Hahn
We make a ladder for ourselves out of our vices when we trample them.
Alcohol can ruin your life and the lives of others, so why even take one drink?
Duane Alan Hahn
Man's natural character is to imitate; that of the sensitive man is to resemble as closely as possible the person whom he loves. It is only by imitating the vices of others that I have earned my misfortunes.
Marquis de Sade
Alcohol doesn't console, it doesn't fill up anyone's psychological gaps, all it replaces is the lack of God.
People who drink to drown their sorrow should be told that sorrow knows how to swim.
People who drink to medicate their pain are bad enough, but 'party' drinkers who get drunk for 'fun' are the worst because they only think of their own pleasure. That would be fine if they were alone, but they almost always involve someone else. They don't really care what they do to their children, spouses, lovers, relatives, friends or total strangers they may maim or kill on the roads, as long as they're having fun.
Duane Alan Hahn
An impaired mind is an unprepared mind.
Duane Alan Hahn
Alcoholism isn't a spectator sport. Eventually the whole family gets to play.
A few years back I was more a candidate for skid row bum than an Emmy. If I hadn't stopped [drinking], I'd be playing handball with John Belushi right now.
Of all vices, drinking is the most incompatible with greatness.
Sir Walter Scott
No cause is helpless if it is just. Errors, no matter how popular, carry the seeds of their own destruction.
John W. Scoville
When some men lose their jobs, instead of learning new skills to find new and better jobs, they think to themselves, "I'm not a man without my job. I'm a bad husband and father because I can't support my family." Their own negative thinking causes depression and they start drinking. Many of them even abuse the family they were so concerned about before. If they can find the time and money for booze binges and beatings, they can find the time and money for a little training and education.
Duane Alan Hahn
Alcohol is a good preservative for everything but brains.
Mary Pettibone Poole
A drinker has a hole under his nose that all his money runs into.
I come from a family that had an alcoholic and a binge drinker in it. Drinking and smoking helped kill my grandfather at age 70 and also helped kill my abusive first stepfather who died at the age of 45. It also took many years for me to overcome the flashbacks from my childhood. I lived it. I know the truth. Drinking has no place in the home.
Duane Alan Hahn
I used to be a drunk driver, and yes, I drank and drove even after my licence was suspended for a DUI. The reason I drove drunk so many times was because it was fun. When a person is drunk they do not have the ability to make a decision based on anything other than "will this be fun or not?" The reason I quit drinking was because I knew I could not stop myself from driving drunk. I gave up my love and passion for alcohol to make the roads safer because I was terrified I was going to kill someone. I don't miss the alcohol at all, and I don't miss the feeling every morning waking up thinking I could have killed someone the night before.
Killing someone whether you intend to or not is an antisocial act, drinking is antisocial behavior (even if you are only a so-called 'social drinker'), so killing people with your car because you are drunk is very antisocial (it's almost like strapping a bomb to your chest and detonating it in a public place). I think people who are caught drinking and driving should be thrown in jail until they die, because there is no other way to stop them. I was fortunate to be able to see how my behavior was affecting society and to be able to make the decision to stop (and follow through with it). I have been sober almost a year and the most terrifying thing in my life is driving home from work every night at midnight and being so scared that the person driving toward me in the other lane is hammered that I practically pull over and stop.

Some people appear to have a mental illness because they have a vitamin B deficiency. For example, the wife of a guy I used to chat with online had severe mood swings which seemed to be caused by food allergies or intolerances. She would became irrational, obnoxious, throw tantrums, and generally act like she had a mental illness. The horrid behavior stopped after she started taking a vitamin B complex. I’ve been taking #ad Jarrow B-Right for many years. It makes me much easier to live with.
Unfermented soy is bad! “When she stopped eating soy, the mental problems went away.” Fermented soy doesn’t bother me, but the various versions of unfermented soy (soy flour, soybean oil, and so on) that are used in all kinds of products these days causes a negative mental health reaction in me that a vitamin B complex can’t tame. The sinister encroachment of soy has made the careful reading of ingredients a necessity.
If you are overweight, have type II diabetes, or are worried about the condition of your heart, check out the videos by William Davis and Ivor Cummins. Most people should avoid wheat, not just those who have a wheat allergy or celiac disease. Check out these books: #ad Undoctored, #ad Wheat Belly, and #ad Eat Rich, Live Long.
Negative ions are good for us. You might want to avoid positive ion generators and ozone generators. Whenever I need a new air cleaner (with negative ion generator), I buy it from surroundair.com. A plain old air cleaner is better than nothing, but one that produces negative ions makes the air in a room fresher and easier for me to breathe. It also helps to brighten my mood.
Never litter. Toss it in the trash or take it home. Do not throw it on the ground.
Hydrofracking is bad for you, your family, your friends, and the environment.
