Alcohol Flushing

I didn’t really come across many stories about positive outcomes upon consumption of the alcohol. Though I did read countless incidents about the harmful physical effects along with the shocking social effects after drinking alcohol. It really makes one wonder why would any normal person deliberately opt to end his life with such cruelty; and sadly the rate for drinkers is on a precipitous rise.
