Recreational Drugs


Beer and Wine

 

Doesn't the Bible refer in a number of places to wine and strong drink? Don't we quite often find people drinking alcohol in the Bible? Can't we assume, then, that Scripture generally does not condemn drinking alcoholic beverages? It's true that we often find people drinking alcohol in the Bible and that Scripture speaks of alcoholic beverages, but we need to be careful not to read too much into a superficial look at such texts. When our English Old Testaments refer to alcohol, they generally use the words wine or strong drink. So any examination of the Old Testament's attitude toward alcohol must take into account the different Hebrew words translated into these two English terms.  Read More >>

Smoking

 

In 1979, the US public health service called smoking "the largest single preventable cause of illness and premature death in the United States." Tobacco is the only legal product in the US that, when used correctly, kills one out of every four of those who use it. Tobacco is responsible for the death of over 450,000 Americans per year—more than all who die from AIDS, illicit drugs, fires, car crashes, and homicides combined.  Read More >>

America's Number One Drug Problem—Coffee

 

Coffee is linked to numerous health issues, but continues to be one the most popular drinks worldwide. Caffeine is the world's most popular stimulant—the drug that four out of five Americans take on any given day. Most of the caffeine we consume comes from coffee. The United States buys nearly one-half of the world's supply of coffee beans. It is said that a food service operation can stand or fall on its reputation of the coffee it serves. Every mid-morning and mid-afternoon working day millions of office and factory workers abandon jobs for an employer-paid "coffee break."  Read More >>

Marijuana

 

Studies show that dozens of the damaging properties found in a packet of conventional smokes are also available to us through smoking cannabis, so it seems reasonable to conclude that pot smoking causes cancer, too. That's a good enough basis alone to shun the joint or bong permanently. But it is the psychoactive effect cannabis has on our minds, particularly on the fragile, inchoate sensibilities of young people, that presents the most pressing concern.  Read More >>

Opium

 

Opium is highly addictive. Tolerance (the need for higher and higher doses to maintain the same effect) and physical and psychological dependence develop quickly. As long ago as 100 AD, opium had been used as a folk medicine, taken with a beverage or swallowed as a solid. Only toward the middle of the 17th century, when opium smoking was introduced into China, did any serious addiction problems arise.  Read More >>

Withdrawal from Morphine causes nausea, tearing, yawning, chills, and sweating lasting up to three days. Morphine crosses the placental barrier, and babies born to Morphine-using mothers go through Morphine withdrawal.  Read More >>
