No no, it's wonderful. What's more interesting than the stuff that can change the way you feel in spite of reality? It's much like love in that respect.

Drunks or Alcoholics cause so much pain and dysfunction to their families.

Drinking in a social way doesn't hurt anyone, although when it hurts the structure and financial viability of a family, is is just horrid.

What's wrong with being drunk ?

Ask a glass of water.

<"I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.">

if you ever saw sinatra perform, then you would realize that the statement above was most likely 'tongue in cheek' as sinatra usually performed with a drink in his hand and joked with the audience. one thing for certain is that he could really sing.

Starkle, starkle, little twink,
Who the hell are you I think.
I'm not under what you call
The alcofluence of incohol.
I'm just a little slort of sheep,
I'm not drunk like thinkle peep.
I don't know who is me yet,
But the drunker I stand here the longer I get.
So just give me one more fink to drill my cup,
'Cause I got all day sober to Sunday up.

"I have to think hard to name an interesting man who does not drink." - Richard Burton. Yes, but he was an alcoholic...

Also I came upon a hilarious drinking quote, that is about drinking a non-alcoholic beverage...
"So I open a can of pepsi max and I see on the side: 'Best Before: See base of can' so I turn the can around and I feel a cold chill running down my legs..." - King Kane

Because it is so easily available, alcohol is a social scourge worse than harmful drugs.

You're not drunk if you can lie on the floor without holding on.

Winston Churchill was leaving a party when he was confronted by an outraged woman who shrilled:
"Sir, you are drunk!"
Winston replied:
"And Madam, you are ugly, but I shall be sober in the morning."

Definitely. Interestingly cocaine and love both increase the brain's release of dopamine.

It okay to drink in moderate amount and be in control of the situation. Two glass or cans or drink are not bad on occassional basis as long you dont go over what the law restricts for driving.

A beautiful French song about drinking, from Jacques Brel, called "The Drunkard". The translation is very poor, but to tell the truth, I'm still hungover from Saturday night, so my brain cells aren't working as well as they should be... I'll work on a better translation this week.

Quote:
My friend fill up my glass
Another one and I will
Another one and I’ll go
No I’m not crying
I’m happy and I’m singing
But it hurts being me,
My friend fill up my glass
My friend fill up my glass

Let us drink to your health,
Since you know how to say
That everything will get better
That she’ll be here tomorrow,
Who cares if you’re a liar,
You heartless innkeeper,
I’ll be drunk in an hour,
I’ll be without sorrow;
Let us drink to the health
Of my friends and their laughs
That I’ll hear once again,
Who’ll come back to me,
Who cares if these kings
Have left me alone
I’ll be drunk in an hour,
I’ll no longer be sour.

My friend fill up my glass
Another one and I will
Another one and I’ll go
No I’m not crying
I’m happy and I’m singing
But it hurts being me,
My friend fill up my glass
My friend fill up my glass

Let us drink to my health,
Come, and drink with me,
Come, and dance with me,
Come and share my joy,
Who cares if the dancers
Have left me under the moon,
I’ll be drunk very soon,
I’ll be without rancor;
Let us drink to the girls
That one day I’ll adore,
Already I’ll drink to the girls
That one day I will cry
And who cares for the flowers
And gifts they’ll refuse,
I’ll be drunk in a hour,
I’ll lose all my passion

My friend fill up my glass
Another one and I will
Another one and I’ll go
No I’m not crying
I’m happy and I’m singing
But it hurts being me,
My friend fill up my glass
My friend fill up my glass

Let us drink to the whore
Who broke up my heart,
Let us drink full of sorrow,
Let us drink full of cries,
And who cares for the cries
That are raining tonight,
I’ll be drunk in an hour,
I’ll have lost all memories;
Let us drink night after night,
Since I’ll be too ugly
For the smallest of Sylvie’s,
For the smallest of regrets,
Let us drink since it’s time,
Let us drink just to drink,
I’ll be well in an hour,
I’ll have lost all my hope.

My friend fill up my glass
Another one and I will
Another one and I’ll go
No I’m not crying
I’m happy and I’m singing
Everything is getting better,
My friend fill up my glass
My friend fill up my glass
My friend fill up my glass

I'm not sure what you're referring to, I said nothing about abolishing alcohol.

Alcohol is like love? I am truly sorry for you if that has been your experience. Nothing presented here has made me change my mind. If you were using marijuana you wouldn't have any hangover to feel better from. You wouldn't have fallen and possibly broken your neck. You wouldn't have slobbered all over telling everyone how much you love them. You wouldn't have become so morose you commit suicide. Your family wouldn't have to hear about the idiot your parent was at the ball game. I could go on and on. If you had listed the benefits of moderate drinking like how red wine has cancer fighting properties I might have viewed it differently.
