I think most could live happily without it. I have alcohol here at my home, but I seriously have not touched it in a year. It's not something I have to have. Now, if I go out with a large group of friends, many times I just have a coffee or water, but I decided when and if I choose to drink. I have had many people buy me drinks when I didn't want it and I have no problem saying no and giving it to someone else. <br />
It can be quite pleasurable to get a little buzz going, I won't deny that, but Its not something that I crave or something I cannot live without.
Want to get in a world of trouble. Go to many of the native villages in Alaska with Booze of any type. I think they feed the offenders to the Polar Bears.
Every party has a pooper that's why we invited you, party pooper....party pooper...
I don't know...Jesus went to a lot of trouble turning water into wine so his friends at the wedding could have something to drink. ;)
