What is alcohol poisoning?...

We do not drink, never really have. One of my pre-schoolers fathers was found dead today, they have said alcohol poisoning is the cause.

  • Its very dangerous because some people think that you have to drink too much to get this and also that coffee will make you sober and its not the case the reason its that you can get alcohol poisoning if you are a person that are no used to drink you can pass out triying to outdrink their buddies and because most people does not recognize the symptoms like slow heart beat and low temp the people are just leaved to "sleep" resulting in not been treated and end up dead, also if someone drinks coffee and thinks that got sober it will keep drinking until they are poisoned.
