Mostly because its a social lubricant and gives you confidence. Being drunk is also fun, and lots of alcohol tastes nice. Having a nice pint at a nice pub with your friends is very enjoyable.

It can make the party/dinner/whatever it is more easygoing and relaxed, simply because of alcohol. I'm not going to lie - I have a laugh when I'm drunk. Yeah, there's the problem with throwing up and not enjoying it, but that mainly comes from not knowing the limit. Every time I've had way too much to drink I remember telling myself never to drink again, but I guess it's part of learning what your limit is. The only problem is that it takes a lot of mistakes to know..... oh well
Also, I actually just really like the taste of beer so that's why I choose it above other drinks.

Peach schnapps are lovely though. I like the taste. No, there are other ways of socialising and I definitely don't need alcohol to enjoy myself, you can easily have fun when you're siber, but it's also fun sometimes just to have a drink and get a bit giggly and tipsy. I've never been so wasted that I start throwing up all over the floor and things, I get "merry", as my mum puts it. It's a fun place to be without making you lose control of yourself or doing stupid things. But no, you don't need alcohol to have fun, nor do you need to abstain completely. Also, people are much nicer to me when they're drunk. That's really it, people who are shy/awkward don't worry so much when they've been drinking. I was adamant I hated the taste of alcohol and that I didn't want to drink at parties and things, but I found a few drinks I like the taste of, so I like having them now and then. I guess people just like alcohol as confidence in a bottle.
