Tell me why 95% of the west can only party and have a laugh if theres alcohol to drink? It's crazy and mind blowing hearing people speak of getting totally "****faced" saying they can't remember a thing but still saying it was a good night. I think if you drink to get to the point you cant stand you must be a moron. When I hear people talking about how they cant wait to go out and drink etc I automatically think their lives must be terrible if they live for the weekend just so they can drink and feel a high/buzz.. people of the west are similar to a crackhead in many ways.

Well yes. Their lives are terrible, they live their shabby little 9-5 slavery lives from Monday to Friday so they have to get out of their minds on the weekend just to forget how miserable their lives are.

And what? You can't change it.

You'd say the same for collectivist cultures ... Why are 95% of them getting arranged marriage?

Your life will be the same or have you conjured up some magical job whereby this isn't the case? :rofl:

Work and life sucks and thats just the truth of it.

I don't either (although I do come from a very anti-alcohol family), however it doesn't stop me mixing at social gatherings with them. There's more to having fun than alcohol imo, but at the same time you could say the same sort of thing about other cultures, "I don't know why such & such culture does such & such"...

It's the method of reaching enjoyment is what I'm questioning. It's a cultral thing to consume large amounts of alcohol (alcohol abuse) in order to have a good time.

We live in a culture driven by competition it's made everyone judgemental and anxious around each other - alcohol enhances the social experience by stripping some of that away.

I find religion disturbing. I don't know why people aren't able to enjoy or appreciate life without inventing a fictional deity. Their lives must be terrible, if they can only keep going with the promise of a ridiculous afterlife.

I kind of get where you are coming from but alcohol helps relax you it doesn't mean you need it to have a good time but it helps everyone loosen up.

I don't drink anymore for certain reasons but when I have to or back when I did a lot, I won't lie, it was always great and felt good. You stop giving a **** about everything else.

Britain's binge drinking culture is one of the main reasons why so many people in this country look a fxxking mess. It's shameful.
