Many countries are now preparing with drugs and vaccines to this Second Wave.

    Sobering.... implies abstinence from an intoxicant...

    Which is more intoxicating to you as life protecting in a pandemic?

    1. changing your lifestyle
    2. depending blindly on drug solutions

    Sobering yourself implies a "waking up " from a "stupor" caused by drug dependency

    Are "stupid"and "stupor" linked?
