A drinker is a person who drinks alcohol to excess. It's called having a drinking problem. Alcohol is the most common and widespread legal drug with tobacco, and it is as addictive and deadly as most illicit drugs. If you have some doubts about the consequences it has over people's health just read what follows:

"Globally, alcohol misuse is the fifth leading risk factor for premature death and disability; among people between the ages of 15 and 49, it is the first. In the age group 20–39 years, approximately 25 percent of the total deaths are alcohol attributable."

Nicolas was a heavy drinker. Every night as the "Moonstruck", he went to "The Cotton Club" to drink by himself. But with an exception, "Never on Tuesday", cause The Cotton Club closed every Tuesday. He was a heartbroken man. A few years ago, "Peggy Sue Got Married" with him, and they had a "Honeymoon in Vegas". A month later they had a divorce in Reno. He remained in Vegas and that was a big mistake. He was "Trapped in Paradise" with all the vices and temptations Vegas offers to the lost souls. He slept with many prostitutes to forget Peggy Sue. But instead of getting kiss of love, he got "Kiss of Death" and "Vampire's Kiss", as they were taking all his money away,.. And his blood too!

When he was dating Peggy Sue, they had plans to start a family. But "The Family Man" he believed he was meant to be turned into an alcoholic with "Snake Eyes". It happened to Nicolas, but "It Could Happen to You". "The Rock" he believed he was once, fell apart like nothing for believing too much in love. "Knowing" he was running out of money in Vegas, he decided to move to the "City of Angels" to find a job at the "World Trade Center". No! It cannot be in New-York cause they are long gone.

But to "Drive Angry" got Nicolas involved in a car accident. Actually, he was more drunk than angry for getting late at the job interview. "The Boy in Blue" (Los Angeles cop) took his driving licence away from him. Full of "Rage" and "Wild at Heart" he thought it was "Time to Kill". But killing a cop in uniform is something "Inconceivable". Hopefully, at the last moment, he managed to calm down, and "Left Behind" Los Angeles.

It was obvious that Nicolas drank to forget his problems, to drown his sorrow, to kill his pain. He felt like he was trapped in a cage like an animal. He felt very depressed and needed some help. He finally decided to go back to "Mom and Dad" cause he had no one else to turn to.

There are many reasons why a person develops a drinking problem. Here are some hints that would explain why Nicolas chose alcohol to escape his pain and sorrow.

"My father once said, 'If you're in the desert and you're dying of thirst, are you going to drink a glass of blood or are you going to drink a glass of water?' I think what he was trying to say, interesting coming from my blood father, is sometimes there are people in your family that can be toxic."

Childhood abuse and traumas are a very common reason why people become addicted to something when they reach adulthood. Sadly, parents are often the abusers. When I say many parents shouldn't be parents, it's fair for their children happiness and well-being. Children's rights should begin in their own family.

"I cry a lot. My emotions are very close to my surface. I don't want to hold anything in so it festers and turns into pus - a pustule of emotion that explodes into a festering cesspool of depression."

Don't keep it inside, cause when it explodes, it will do a lot of damages. You don't have to cry in public, and don't have to tell anyone if you feel ashamed. Depression is a pustule in a cesspool. You don't want to keep that shit inside of you, don't you?

"Passion is very important to me. If you stop enjoying things, you've got to look at it, because it can lead to all kinds of depressing scenarios."

Don't lose the passion. There's always something that make you feel alive and happy. This is where your passion lies. Keep the flame of the passion alive. You can feel passion for about everything, it's not limited to romance and sex.

"Actors have an opportunity to use storytelling as a way to solve pain."

Everybody can be an actor. Every storytelling is better than alcohol. If you have a drinking problem, tell your story, or write it if you feel more comfortable this way. Don't keep drinking! Look for another outlet!

"So, goodnight Nicolas. There should be other drinks to replace alcohol in parties and bars. The rules on selling alcoholic beverages to people who are under 18 is not enough. It should be extended for heavy drinkers for the well-being of the entire society."
