I like alcohol, but I can live without it. I've only overindulged a few times (had a bad hangover only once in my life) and didn't really enjoy it. I don't understand why so many people of my acquaintance seem to be unable to enjoy themselves without alcohol - preferably as much as possible. These people's status updates on Facebook almost inevitably involve alcohol. I'm fairly sure I know quite a lot of social alcoholics. I just think there are ways to enjoy yourself which are a lot more interesting and involve a lot fewer pitfalls in terms of health, impact on your relationships with others, etc.
