A lot of research has been done to find and explore the reason why people drink alcohol. From research conducted in the Netherlands among 15 to 25 year-olds, the following answers came up:

Sociability (71%)
Like the taste (51%)
Feel at ease (12%)
Get intoxicated (6%)
Get drunk (2%)
Because everybody does it (6%)
To forget problems (24%)
Alcohol gets risky when you need more to feel good. If you can't do that anymore on your own, and you use the alcohol for it, at a certain point you run the risk of starting to drink more and more each time to still feel the effects. This can be the beginning of an addiction. If you drink to feel good, you should ask yourself if you can also feel at ease without alcohol.

Drinking has become socializing.

People don't go out to have a chat and catch-up, they just go out to get absolutely shitwrecked and THEN talk about it to their friends in the morning and laugh about it and say "omg I can't believe I did that...." so fourth =___=

I do it so...whatever. I'll admit, thats why its done.

when you are sad and want to forget things
when you are happy and want to celebrate things
when you are angry and want to realx before you start killing things (if u drink too much the effect would be the oposit)
when i dont know anytime its okay if its just a litlle bit

Numbs pain, physically. My arm was beginning to become sore after paddling 20 - 30 miles down the river. Pop's threw me a cold one and I chugged it and I became a paddling MACHINE.

You'll never catch me socializing with random people and drinking anything with/near them for reasons of my own. IF I got caught in that situation..so I like to have some on occasion just for the heck of it. with people I'm most close to of course. rare too))

I admit I've given in and had quite a bit cause I was feeling blue at times, well it didn't help much except when I knock out, I wake up in the best mood ever, that and no hangovers for me!!! *jumps for joy* woohoo!!
