    Most people assume I stopped boozing because I converted to Islam, this not the case.
    In fact, I stopped a while before I considered the delights of that religion.

    One evening, drunk as I often was, I called into a local Indian take away for a kebab.
    While I was waiting, a young girl I knew popped in with an order for her, her sister and her father. The mother had buggered off some few months before because the dad was beating her up.
    Her mobile bleeped to announce a text message that, drunkenly peeking at the screen, turned out to be seriously XXX rated as it described in some detail what was going to happen to her that evening.
    She, being 15 at the time, seemed a tad young but I was seriously pissed so I made some drunken comment about her boyfriend being a bit of a lad.
    "it's my dad", she replied.
    To my lasting shame, I was too drunk to think properly so I didn't call the cops as I should have and thus, I didn't save her being raped by her dad for the Nth time.

    Can anyone think of a better reason to stop drinking?

    It would make sense only if your drinking contributed to her abuse.

    I read somewhere that drinking can shorten your life considerably. Fuck that! After seeing that I decided to give up reading!

    What's a problem is not drinking, but getting drunk. Millions of people can enjoy a drink or two without ever having a craving for any more.

    If you're not one of us, then you should consider not drinking. But of course millions of people who never touch alcohol hold religious beliefs other than Islam.

    It does beg the question of whether someone has the right to interfere into what appears to be a consensual if incestuous relationship. Maybe this is love. Don't they have rights?

    John Phillips, known as Papa John of the group the Mamas and the Papas had an incestuous relationship with his daughter Mackenzie for years. Well into her adult life. Actually until his death. Was that wrong? Did it affect his popularity any?

    This sounds like the meanderings of a person under the influence.

    Sad story, Indofred. I hope the girl got away from her abusive dad eventually.

    I stopped drinking simply because I drank too much. I quit before it got out of hand. Still get cravings, but I can deal with them. Haven't touched the stuff in nearly 4 years. :)

    lets see....

    first off how do you know she was telling you the truth and not yanking the chain of some drunk who was reading personal messages?

    and when you did sobered up... why didn't you call the cops then?

    It had nothing to do with you drinking.... it had everything with you not wanting to get involved....
