Question: What is the purpose of drinking alcohol!?
if not to get drunk!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

You stupid kids drink just to get drunk!. Once you get older, you appreciate the tastes and the nuances of a good beer!. I can pick out flavors in a beer that you couldn't concieve!. So go and binge drink while you are young and stupid!. Once you grow up you will have a finer appreciation!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

The original purpose of alcoholic beverages was that they were safer (healthier) than drinking water, which was polluted in most cities, and nobody understood about bacteria or pasteurization, yet!.

Thanks to its alcohol content and non-alcoholic phytochemicals (natural occurring plant compounds), wine has been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease, certain cancers and slow the progression of neurological degenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease!.

Beer is just as good, if not better!. (Yipee!)

Well that's exactly what i always used it for,not so much now though!.The last time i got drunk i insulted my mother in law,told my boss exactly what i thought of him and got barred from my local!.So my days of getting drunk are over,i just have the two drinks now then i stop!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

well it can be good in some social situations where you might need a little dutch courage to talk to complete strangers but that in mind it does,nt mean you should get hammered and make a complete fool of your self or vomit all over your self i did that in the past and i wont be doing that again!.

Some people just enjoy the taste of beer!. I do!. I compare it to coffee!. Why do people drink it if they don't want a buzz!? To enjoy the flavor!. Why is there decaf coffee!? Same answer!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

"beer energy", happiness, horniness, relaxation, stress buster, a!.k!.a!. all the symptoms of getting drunk ;)Www@FoodAQ@Com

So that when you look at a person who you would consider ugly when sober, when you are drunk you would consider them to be beautiful ! Www@FoodAQ@Com

Some people enjoy the taste, some people enjoy wine!. Why would people buy wine if all they wanted to do was get drunk, they might as well by cheap cider!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

It's not necessary to get hammered, for some people one or two drinks can be enough to act as a social lubricant especially for those who are naturally quite shy!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
