An Investigator’s Perspective (Part 1): Serge Benhayon ‘On the Money’ Regarding Alcohol

by E.W., Police Officer, Australia

I have served in the Police Force for seventeen years within metropolitan, state and federal departments. In this time I have been exposed to many investigations. It is not without good reason that the one area in law where police are considered to be ‘experts’, is in providing evidence of opinion regarding drunken behaviour.

Dealing with alcohol-related incidents is now recognised as a major drain on resources for all emergency services.

I have dealt with the mindless violence associated with alcohol and witnessed the catastrophic damage it does to individuals, families and communities. Let me be very clear – if you are going to be seriously assaulted or meet an untimely end, by accident or design, including vehicle accident or brawl, in approximately 80% of cases alcohol will be a contributing factor!

Certainly alcohol is a known aggravating factor in up to 90% of all domestic violence related incidents – I certainly cannot recall attending a DV incident where alcohol wasn’t involved.

These facts are well known and the statistics make grim reading! They are the reason ALL western governments are now taking drastic measures to tackle alcohol related violence – tactically referred to as ‘excessive consumption’, and this includes related domestic violence incidents.

I have worked within some of the most hostile housing estates imaginable, and either faced or witnessed violence that would make the average person physically tremble.

Any description of these events has usually been met with incredulity, as I often find it is a safe and programmed response that belief or acceptance frequently depend on a filtration process geared for that which is comfortable and fits simplistic reasoning.

I have observed firsthand that the common ingredient existing throughout all the various forms of violence, be that from domestic to football-related, or simply mindless violence – is ALCOHOL! It is most definitely not just drugs alone. My experience, which history also demonstrates, is that alcohol and violence have a symbiotic correlation.

Interestingly, where there is evidence of violence with drugs, alcohol is also present as an aggravating element. Furthermore, drug-affected violence itself is not that common. In my experience as a police officer it is safer to walk into a crack house than a busy Friday night in many pubs. Violence is not limited by socio-economic status.

It is also often much easier to communicate with those who are drug affected than those affected by alcohol… you can at least successfully reason with those affected by drugs. Not so with those who are drunk!

Why? I have observed, in my capacity as a police officer, drunks who at first appear ‘jovial’ or ‘merry’ very quickly become overly familiar, aggressive and violent: they hold an opinion that is more important than anyone else’s, and is always the right and best opinion. They know better than you about everything… and are happy to repeat it – even in the holding cells. I have witnessed this on many occasions.

I have picked up from the ground, unconscious (and sometimes beaten unconscious) teenagers, whose parents believe they are out with friends or just having a harmless drink. Running street battles, or single mindless ‘king hit’ assaults are the norm, not the exception, for a busy weekend in a drinking district. I have visited broken homes where the children are malnourished and wearing rags, but the fridge is full of beer!

So, Serge Benhayon has correctly identified what he describes as the complete and utter personality alteration of those under the influence of alcohol – not known as ‘spirits’ for no reason. He has completely and accurately described the change in personality, the devastations to the home and family, and the impact on physical well being that alcohol causes. I have often wondered, if alcohol was not a centuries old ingrained habit, would it not be classed up there with hard drugs?

The usual disbelief and remorse that follows when a person becomes sober the following day follows a common and repeated pattern. The aggressive nature is replaced with embarrassment and a very quiet and sombre person, who will then utter the all too often repeated phrase, after being ‘refreshed’ with a hot beverage containing at least five or six sugars – ‘did I do that?’ Or…‘that wasn’t me, was it?’

  1. After reading this blog again and the statistics you share E.W. about alcohol it seems crazy that we glamorise and promote drinking alcohol and the selling of it, when it clearly is a poison and a contributing factor to so much violence and harm in the world.

  2. I have watched people drink alcohol from working in hospitality for over 20 years and I too used to drink alcohol. Over this time since attending a presentation where Serge Benhayon presented that there is a full body and being alteration and that leaves yourself open to allow energies that are draining your life force energy. Now this made so much sense when I used to drink and be out on a ‘good’ night’ it would take me days and days to recover. Now just over 11 years of not drink and still working in Hospitality it is the best thing I have ever chosen, to stop taking a poison and abusing my body in this way.

  3. What powerful, real-life examples of seeing the shocking and devastating results of alcohol in people – in their homes and on the streets. At the first presentation I ever attended by Serge Benhayon, he exposed very clearly the energetic and physical effects of alcohol on the body, without in any way telling people not to drink. Soon after, by personal choice, alcohol became something of the past for me.
    .”He (Serge Benhayon) has completely and accurately described the change in personality, the devastations to the home and family, and the impact on physical well being that alcohol causes”.

  4. It makes me wonder what the world would look like without alcohol. Surely people would initially say they would miss the parties and ‘fun’ of alcohol but really that would fade away quickly if we start to enjoy celebrating and having fun without alcohol. What would really be a big relief for everyone is to not have the abuse of alcohol and all the violence, aggression and mess that is associated with the use of alcohol. I would be a real blessing for the world.

  5. ‘Yeah, but that’s the extreme cases, I drink responsibly’ would many say to this. I know from my own years of being an alcoholic what ‘responsible’ drinking does to you. I started drinking just on parties and gatherings on weekends. That created a psychological addiction which turned into a physical addiction. But I was ‘civilized’ and drank only after 5 pm and not as much to knock me out, but be ‘nicely’ drunk, every night. My whole life was focused on that, and I would go out of my way to make sure the booze was available. I appeared healthy and functional by day, but my life was one of lack of energy, emotional instability, deteriorating health and depression. This utter misery lasted 15 years, trying to give it up many times unsuccessfully. One night I drank so much that I had to call an ambulance and go to hospital the next morning, because I was so weak that I couldn’t stand and I couldn’t drink water without throwing up. I was dehydrated with slight alcohol poisoning. That was the last time I drank alcohol, that frightened me too much. I’m so glad I’m not a slave to that evil poison anymore.
    Unfortunately many people can drink occasionally without getting addicted like that, and then there is this cultural gratification of wine, champagne, ‘quality’ spirits etc, to accomplish a good meal. So much money to be made, it’s a big part of the economy. So it will stay legally available for a long time, despite it is doing so much harm to so many.

  6. We are blind to what we do not want to see and so the incredulousness spoken of here when people hear the very real experience of those like police who are the front line in dealing with alcohol and it’s consequences. I’d not seen it so clearly until reading today but alcohol makes it all about you, engenders an arrogance that who they are is king and that others must fall in line with that, it makes us hyper individualistic and does not engender good working and harmony – it destroys community and yet we buy the false lie it does not, this is the deep lie and illusion we’ve bought into with alcohol.

  7. How can we ignore what is presented here? We all know it is the truth yet we continue to accept alcohol as normal in our society. Often people say in moderation it is ok but we all know what a poison and altering substance it is and how can something so harmful in our society be ok?

  8. Much of the devastating effect of alcohol is not reported in the news or printed in the papers, which has a lot to do with so many people invested in drinking it that we don’t want the reality of what is truly going on to be exposed.

  9. How loud do the alarm bells have to ring before as a society we say ‘enough is enough’? The alarm bells have not only rung but toppled over and crashed onto the floor…

  10. Alcohol has become more of a social problem over the last few years, unfortunately it leads to unsociable and unacceptable behaviour costing business and the local authorities several millions of pounds for wilful damage, assault, medical assistance and the increased need for policing, yet nobody seems to be addressing the true problem, we seem to be far more content just dealing with issues that result from increased alcohol intake, maybe we need to start educating societies to truly see the impact alcohol has on communities and families as a whole.

  11. Thank you for sharing your ‘stats’ here on violence related to alcohol E.W. They do not surprise me one bit having experienced the drinking culture myself when younger and also in later life, having witnessed the complete personality changes its use brings in others ‘first hand’. ‘That wasn’t me was it?’ is so very true – because it isn’t ‘me’ but ‘another’ alcohol induced character. Such a character change is quite shocking to witness and reveals the true evil of alcohol.

  12. I was reading on the BBC web site how the emergency service were gearing up for New Years Eve
    They said that dealing with alcohol-related incidents is now a major drain on resources for all emergency services at this time of year. In some cities they have a unit which is a converted articulated lorry and in this lorry there are showers, beds, settees, loos where the police can take the people who have had too much to drink and help them sober up. These units have been set up so that the Hospitals are not inundated with drunks, because they cannot cope with the sheer volume at this time of year.
