By drinking intoxicating stuff, one loses control over the emotions and passions, the impulses and instincts, the speech and movements and once even descends to the level of beasts .

To dwell in Rama principle, one has to be vigilant about food and drink consumes by both body and mind. -( discourse at Prasanthi nilayam April 1965)
