Why would anyone with a brain drink alcohol? Why not just hit yourself in the head with a hammer everyday, the effects are about the same, and think of the money we could save?

Some people like the taste of alcohol. They drink responsibly. Why do people use salt? As with any substance (good or bad) there are those who will abuse it. So maybe the question is what triggers the need to drink to the point of becoming so intoxicated that you cannot stand up?

Every alcoholic I know thought they were drinking responsibly until it was too late. There is no such thing as "responsible drinking". If you drink, you lose your self control and sometimes interfere with other people's lives; hardly responsible.
