    I totally support banning second-hand drinking – it makes the beer too warm.

    I was just asked, when renewing my car insurance for MY vehicle, who I live with.

    I said it was none of their business and not relevant to the insuring my car as sole owner.

    The operator just answered its ‘something we have to ask now’, in case some else could use your car.

    No damn way.

      Well, to be fair, they are insuring you based upon risk assessment. If you have teenage/young drivers living with you it is not completely unreasonable that they may take the car for a drive once in a while, with or without permission. I can’t say the question is not relevant to insuring the car, even if you are the sole owner. The other option is a named driver exclusion addendum (if your state allows it), where coverage for that specific driver is excluded.

    Bullshit. The articles describe What we used to call “codependency”

      at least codependents were expected to take responsibility for their part in the relationships. Their parts being staying in relationships with them, not putting down boundaries, enforcing boundaries, and ending the relationship.

      Now, with “second hand drinking”, the “victim” has no responsibility at all. she (yes, she, because no man worth his shit would call anything like this “second hand drinking) just stands there and lets the drinker inflict all kinds of pain on her. She has no agency, she has no responsibility. She’s not an actor. She’s just “acted upon”.

      people need to start taking responsibility for their shit. These people are codependents and in a codependent relationship, BOTH parties bear their share of fault.

      Exactly. We don’t need a new word for it.

      Frankly, I’m convinced the arising of this term is symptomatic of the universal mental retardation of the Millennials, who are so illiterate they never heard of codependency, and thought they were clever to ‘invent’ this term by borrowing from ‘second-hand smoke’, when all they show is just how stupid and illiterate they are…

    I always thought that “second-hand drinking” was when you sucked down drunk’s vomit (your own or someone else’s). Sounds like a rare enough event not to prompt any concern.

      😆 😝

      That’s how musicians as diverse as Hank Williams Sr. and Bon Scott have died, choking on their own vomit while sleeping off a hangover. Not how I would wanna go…

        I guess THAT would be an example of “second-hand alcohol” being a proximate cause of death?

        I guess so…

    Actually, they’re right. Drinking causes people to act like idiots, which does affect others. People don’t own their behavior. It becomes “Sorry about your face, man, I was sloshed!” Drinking becomes an excuse to indulge in irresponsible behavior. For men that often means acting violents and for women it usually means acting out sexually.

    Doesn’t mean we should ban drinking. Prohibition didn’t work. But let’s at least look at this for what it is. Maybe you can drink responsibly, but odds are 3/4 of your neighbors can’t.

      Yeah, but deti is right that we have an existing term, ‘codependency’, to describe that.

      It’s as if Millennials think they’ve just discovered the wheel, and had to give it a new name…

      And it’s NOT analogous to ‘second hand smoke’, wherein people breathe the same substance that others are smoking and so are directly affected, potentially (depending on concentration), by the same physically harmful effects that can occur from ingesting tobacco and filter paper and additives, etc.

      So it’s a dumb phrase, that doesn’t fit, because godless proggy Millennial journalists are incredibly stupid.
