    Alcohol is the ONLY drug that you can`t just stop taking...You have to gradually stop taking it

    Wrong, everyother drug is like that too! Same with others, and anyways you cant die from not drinking but you can die from drinking a lot and then stopping to fast.

    So there isn`t a big huge argument, here is what an online medical encyclopedia has to say about alcohol withdrawal: Medline Plus

    They said he was never a big drinker so why should it bother if he stopped drinking. Weird. I think he was drinking more than they want to let us know.

    I think he was physically addicted, even if he didn`t drink "all that much", having a withdrawel when you`re addicted is bad on your body, until you overcome it for long enough.

    Yeah, I bet he was drinking a lot. Whether you drink a lot or not is completely subjective. He was in a frat, so not a lot means, he only did keg stands once a night.

    I`ve heard of this happening and you have to drink a lot to die from withdrawl.

    I highly, highly doubt he really wasn`t a heavy drinker. Remember, this is from the perspective of college fraternity boys.

    actually... if any of you would want it... you can probably get it off of my schools newspaper. they just ran an article. he died back in sept. im a fresh here at ONU, but i remember he was a prominant business major, which is one of our colleges here on campus. they found him dead and suspected foul play... but his heart ended up slowing down so much and then just speeding up... and he died...it was, and is actualy very sad, and its still hard to take it each day here on campus...

    I don`t know if you can die from not drinking or not, so we better not risk it.

    Righty-o then I`m off down the boozer. The ammount I`ve put away over the last 7 years means I`m in imminent danger of dropping dead.

    * Before anyone starts, I realise that would have only made me 16 when I started drinking, but in the UK the legal age is 18, and growing a beard at 16 ages you by at least 3 years ;-)
