    swim can honestly tell you that "scaring" people into stopping something is a very hard thing to do. Talking about it and making one realise what he's doing that helps alot more. I posted alot of articles on Alcohol Harm in the drugnews section and if you use the forum search engine you'l find lots more.

    Swim's hangover problems always stop/reduce when before he goes to bed (when drunk) he drink lots of water.

    What ever you do don't lie too him... I remember how much health class used to lie to me when i was a freshman and all their scare tactics to keep u away from certain drugs, and when i figared out they were lies i never belived them again.

    So id say the best way to help your friend is to show him exactly what it can do ( try a wikipedia search) and if he still wants to do it its his choice.
