I've known this for years.

"My advice to you is to start drinking heavily."
"Better listen to him Flounder, he's pre-med."

Actually, when I worked with elderly people you would be surprised how many of them drank regularly for medicinal purposes. I would guess mostly joint pain. You could find alcohol hidden almost anywhere at times.

I knew I shouldn't have quit, but my liver made me do it.

dr told my gramma to have blackberry brandy once a day. for arthritis...

A problem drinker is one who has arthritic elbows.

Drinking can lead to Irish Arthritis, though.

That's when you get stiff in a different joint each night.

It's the best rheumatis medicine.

Experts say this should not be taken as a green light for drinking more

Try to put the genie back in the bottle now.

Hasn't anybody heard of a state of intoxication known as "painless"? I've been there, and it's great until the next morning.

Pink Floyd calls it comfortably numb.

As a medical professional, I think this is a great idea.

I tried soaking my joints in alcohol a long time ago. I could never get the concentration right so it would vaporize.

I heard it works wonders for bubonic plague, too.

"Previous studies have shown that alcohol may reduce the risk of developing the disease in the first place." That's what I'm banking on. Punch your ticket early, while you still look good and before all these nasty old age diseases catch up to you.
