当心第一次喝酒! Beware of Your First Drink!

这周我读到了这样一个故事:男孩和菲利普叔叔在一个阳光明媚的日子出去散步时,菲利普叔叔给他讲了老汉汤姆史密斯的故事,一个令人厌恶的酒鬼。原来他以前也是一个乖巧得体的好孩子,只是后来在城市里遇到一群狐朋狗友,从此便染上恶习。由于赌博,只得母亲寄钱来偿还债款。回家后,有一段时间事情进展的很顺利,他似乎戒掉了恶习,也娶了一个可爱的妻子。而一件事却最终毁了他的一生。他在城市里学会了喝烈酒,而他也再也无法抗拒诱惑,从此走上了不归路。他的母亲由于过度悲痛和羞愧而过世了,妻子也很快随母亲而去。他成了一个不折不扣的酒鬼,最终他因盗窃罪被判在监狱服刑十年。他可能会死在监狱里,因为他已经很老了,他也在给菲利普叔叔的信中悔恨道:“要当心第一次饮酒”。

一个谨慎对待饮酒的人永远不会成为一个醉鬼,一个谨慎自己内心的人永远不会堕落。要当心第一次饮酒。有多少人在酗酒吸毒之初只是好奇,抱着“浅尝辄止”的想法,最后却陷入沼泽无法自拔。道德亦是如此,一旦突破心理那条道德防线,再微不足道的恶念恶行也会愈演愈烈。“勿以恶小而为之”,坏人也不是一开始就是那样邪恶,而良心都是在一次又一次对小恶的尝试中磨灭。拒绝对任何恶习怀有猎奇心理,对任何不好的东西坚决说“不”,这是让自己在浊世中保持清廉的最关键要领。


This week I read a story about a boy and his Uncle Philip who were out for a walk on a sunny day when Uncle Philip told him the story of old Tom Smith, a disgusting drunkard. It turns out that he used to be a well-behaved and good boy, but later he met a group of bad friends in the city and contracted bad habits from then on. Because of gambling, his mother had to send money to repay the debt. After returning home, things went smoothly for a while. He seemed to have given up his bad habits and married a lovely wife. But one incident ultimately ruined his life. He learned to drink hard liquor in the city, and he could no longer resist the temptation, and he embarked on a road of no return. His mother passed away due to excessive grief and shame, and his wife soon followed her mother. He became a full-blown alcoholic and was eventually sentenced to ten years in prison for theft. He will probably die in prison because he is very old, and he also regrets it in a letter to Uncle Philip: "Beware of the first drink."

A person who is careful about his drinking will never become a drunkard, and a person who is careful about his heart will never become a degenerate. Be careful when drinking alcohol for the first time. How many people are just out of curiosity when they first start drinking and taking drugs, with the idea of ​​"just trying it", but in the end they fall into a swamp and cannot extricate themselves. The same is true for morality. Once the psychological moral defense line is breached, no matter how trivial the evil thoughts and deeds are, they will become more and more serious. "Don't do small evils for small things." Bad people are not that evil at the beginning, but their consciences are worn out by trying small evils again and again. Refuse to be curious about any bad habits and resolutely say "no" to anything bad. This is the most critical way to stay clean in troubled times.
