    I don't drink very often. About once a month if that...I just don't see the fun in it.

    Oh god! May I?

    What makes people drink?....... people asking. "What makes people drink!"

    The proper question is..... why does a person "need" to drink.....well not everyone does. Some enjoy a beer, or wine or nip. Who cares right? .......the answer is in the question. "Need" .... i need a smoke, i need a joint..... i need icecream.
    Its the how why where art thou "need" .

    There are times when I need it simply to block out the real world.

    Wanting and needing are two different things.
    "Needing" anything, apart from the obvious.....food, water,etc.etc. is dangerous.
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    Availability is a large part of the problem, but that applies to all potential addictions not just alcohol.

    I can't think of anything worse than alcohol though. At least tobacco takes decades to kill someone. Alcohol can do that within a year, and it can totally destroy quality of life in the process.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    There's this improvement with the quality of conversation whenever an alcohol is involved. It's easy to disclose your thoughts to someone.

    You misspelled "quantity"

    The trouble is, "easy" goes to "inappropriate" far too easily. Also the amounts required increase and often barely noticed, the frequency increases.

    I'm speaking as someone who's strictly limited their intake in part for those reasons. Basically now I don't drink. Only at a Wake or something like that. Champagne will be sipped once for a Wedding toast in the same way as Communion wine. That's it.

    I'm especially serious about that if you are drinking to relax inhibitions and get self confidence. Drinking is probably the easiest way but it's also one of the worst. Cocaine would be the other. Both will wreck you before you even know it's happened.
