Don Karl Juravin research reveals scary statistics of alcohol abuse to a degree of “spiritual suicide”. While social drinking may have its advantages, it seems like alcohol may be used subconsciously as a suicidal form to forget real-life problems, feel artificially happy and die. “Spirits” get a death toll number of 3 million worldwide.

We found a correlation between alcohol consumption and  suicide rate based on World Happiness Report 2017

  • The suicide factor: there is a causal relationship between the harmful use of alcohol and a range of mental and behavioral disorders, other noncommunicable conditions as well as injuries.
