> Alcohol is an organic solvent -- I consider it to be more of a toxin than a drug! It's very "dirty." It's more dangerous than just about any medication or recreational drug I can think of that is used today, except maybe inhalants (industrial solvents in paint thinner and such that some people think are a good high) and some antineoplastics.

Elizabeth, I'm a bit confused on this one. Are you talking about alcohol as a toxin when used as an antidepressant, or are you talking about a glass of wine with dinner? I find it hard to believe that you could be talking about occasional drinking as dangerous and one step before the toxicity of paint thinners. For some people alcohol (probably genetically predispositioned) can be extremely toxic; in general though, I can't somehow understand your thinking about it as a toxin. Alcohol in moderation was been part of religious ceremonies for centuries, and certainly appears not to have taken a large toll on the European population.

Have I misunderstood you?
