A shot from a gun?

Here we go. I'm not sure about this one, but my guess is

INTOXICATION

Meanings:

Alcohol intoxication. Poisoning.

My first teapot is hurting. My second teapot is hurting way too much

Alcohol intoxication has some undesirable effects. Poisoning hurts.

My first teapot is an escape. My second teapot is the exit

Getting drunk allows people to "escape from their problems". Getting poisoned can kill you.

My first teapot is a pleasure. My second teapot can be too

People like getting drunk. Death can be something desirable for certain people.

My first teapot is less deadly than my second teapot, but is responsible for more deaths

Alcohol is less deadly than poison, but alcohol causes way more deaths than poison.

  • $\begingroup$ Poison isnt the second teapot, but good guess. :) keep on you can do it $\endgroup$ – user52327 Sep 21 '18 at 15:43
  • $\begingroup$ Just to be clear: I used "poisoning" in a broad meaning (food poisoning, carbon monoxide poisoning, poison poisoning). Is it wrong as a whole, or is the answer a more specific kind of poisoning? $\endgroup$ – Racso Sep 21 '18 at 15:46
  • $\begingroup$ @Rasco The only poision i meant is the alkohol $\endgroup$ – user52327 Sep 21 '18 at 15:47
