Among the Jews there were groups ofabstainers. In the Muslim calendar, complete daily abstention from sexual intercourse, smoking and alcohol is practiced during Ramadan. For this reason, the police in some countries carry out large seizures of illegal alcohol. In our region, alcohol abstinence can be part of a "vote" or the so-called "foil". The fioretto is a small sacrifice offered to the Madonna, to Jesus or to a saint to whom one is devoted.
The advantages of abstainers
Theabstainerscan enjoy many benefits. First of all, they are immune to alcoholism and all the risks associated with the use of alcohol. They are less exposed to the risk of road accidents and certainly will not have license withdrawals for driving under the influence of alcohol.
If here in Italy the advantages ofabstainersboil down to this, in other nations of the world there are committees for abstainers and controlled groups.
For example, in England and Switzerland theabstainersenjoy discounts on both life and car insurance policies. Statistics from insurance companies report that drinkers have a higher chance of accidents and certain diseases, so who isI don't drinkis rewarded with discounts onpolicy.
As stated, they do not existsymptoms because theabstainerit is not a medical condition but a deliberate choice.
As stated, theabstainercan be induced by onelow tolerance to alcohol. Everyone knows: there are subjects capable ofto bearhigher doses of alcohol and others that can't hold a shot.
Genetic predisposition, in this context, plays a crucial role. There areentire populationswho see greater tolerance to alcohol. In the collective imagination, in fact, it is difficult to imagine a teetotaler Russian, it can be very simple to imagine a Russian who quietly drinks a couple of shots of vodka without getting drunk.
Not only Russians, Italians and Israelis also seem to be predisposed to tolerate alcohol more when compared with Norwegians, Finns and Indians.
