If a man chokes on water, will he stop drinking water because it made him choke? Or, will he keep drinking water to stop Choking?

WHAT ARE YOU?

Charlie O. Price

No matter if a man chokes on water, he still must have it, so he must learn to drink slowly or drown.

Nothing true without it's flipside
Nothing is true without nessessity.

Benita Joseph

@darker My motivation is, water is essential hence the name water no get enemy. Because yes he drank from thirst but if he were to choke, he would keep drinking. He would never stop drinking water because he choked on it once. He would keep drinking because he needs water, like the rest of us.
