Alcoholism
Alcoholism is one of the major problems of the government nowadays. People who are under the influence of alcohol tend to lose their consciousness. A huge number of battered spouses and children, road accident damages and victims of drunk driving are all caused by this evil factor in the society. The only way to avoid these incidents is to make alcohol illegal. Even if it really helps a country’s economy, there are a lot of other ways to make it happen. After liquors are banned, then crimes will automatically decrease. There are no drunk drivers who will kill an innocent person any time. No wives and children will be hurt and killed by a mad spouse because of alcohol. Realizing these issues is the only way for a person to stop the consumption of alcohol and to prevent addiction.

Debate
1) only one or two drinks can impair your judgement and coordination needed to safely operate a car. some short term effects of alcohol are reduced inhibitions, loss of muscle control, memory loss or blackouts, nausea, vomiting, headaches, hangovers, and stupor (which is acting seriously disoriented and confused). The longer a person abuses alcohol the closer they get to becoming an alcoholic, which is a person addicted to intoxicated drinks. 4) Drunken individuals are four times more likely to lose their temper and six times more likely to commit an act of violence. Alcohol is the major cause in thousands of suicides and murders each year. 27% of drivers under 21 reported that they drove drunk at least once last year. In 2001, there were 1482 alcohol related deaths of college students in the united states. These numbers would go down if we banned alcohol.
