Alchohol Is The Answer

According to a study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, there finally is a solution for homeless alcoholics. The answer? Free booze! No, you heard that right ... the study actually looked into what happened if you gave your average urban outdoorsman, which is a homeless person for those of you who don’t understand political correctness, alcohol. The results, according to those doing the study, were encouraging.

For several months 17 alcoholics in the study were offered a free glass of wine each hour from 7 in the morning to 10 at night at the Ottawa homeless shelter. Here are the so called encouraging results. Three people actually quit drinking. How about that! Three people died from their alcoholism...Now that’s encouraging, just a bit of a setback there. Eleven others reported decreased drinking as a result of the study. So naturally the conclusion is that free alcohol is the answer to alcoholism. And to think people have been bothering with silly little programs like Alcoholics Anonymous all this time!

Where’s the bar I got to kick this drinking thing!!!
