Should alcohol come with explicit photos, like cigarettes?

You know, like how cigarettes come with pictures of black lungs? Do you think it would be a good idea to do something similar with alcohol? Like mandating that a picture of an alcoholic's liver, and a drunk-driving victim has to be shown on every bottle of alcohol?

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • Went home at 2 with a 10 and woke up at 10 with a 2. How about that picture?

  • Explicit photos of naked drunk people.
    "Warning, consumption of alcohol can lead to unusual behaviors. This is George. Ordinarily he wouldn't copulate with goats but after a quart of gin...well, just see for yourself."

  • That's unnecessary.

  • Ironically the black lungs and the skulls on cigarette packaging increased their sales.

    Besides alcohol has been with humans before the dawn of civilizations.

    Plus you are comparing the act of drinking to alcoholism. Smoking is 100% bad for you. Alcohol isnt in moderation. You cant moderately smoke and be healthy.

      • That's more to do with more prevalent alternatives and education than did the scary labeling that didnt do shit to lower smokers wanting to smoke.

        • I think moderate drinking is okay, but I don't understand the people who binge.

          • I'm pretty much an alcoholic tbh. I just can't really control myself very well round drugs/ drink. But I do get where you're coming from. It's a stupid thing to do. Unfortunately there are always a few people who try drink and drugs and just become addicted.

  • Many smokers can buy a new packed of Cigarettes' but the pictures do not Teach anything. They will Just ignore that Smoking or too much drinking kills.

  • That probably wouldn't stop anyone. If people want to do something, they're not going to care about anything or anyone and just do it.

  • I think that's a great idea. The risks of developing alcoholism are serious and really common. Some people just hide it well.

  • I always thought alcohol was more dangerous than cigarettes. I never understood why there wasn't any warning about alcohol

    • Alcohol isnt inherently dangerous to consume. It's the self moderation that's the problem. Smoking is always bad for you, one cigarette or packs a day.

      Also has something to do with alcohol consumption being older than human civilization.

      • Driving after drinking is dangerous. Driving after smoking a cigarette is not dangerous. When drunk your defenses are down, therefore, if you're violent or a rapist you would be more quickly inclined to do your stupid shit, which is dangerous. Cigarettes don't mess with your defenses

        • Yet its already known what alcohol does and theres laws already in place for alcohol. Kinda redundant to put on graphic warnings for alcohol consumption as it's not assumed the person would drink the entire package.

  • Someone on discord sent me a picturr of a pack of cigarettes from Australia. Literally the whole pack is covered in warnings and he says everyone there smokes.
