It does seem like a lot of people in general drink for 2 reaons, a messed up view of their life, or as a social activity.
I genuinely enjoy the taste of liquor, and enough of it is relaxing. To each their own.
I like beer, and I like whiskey. I don't know why. I don't know why I feel compelled to drink. The thought of coming home any afternoon with a 12 pack makes me happy. The act of listening to metal and drinking whiskey makes me feel powerful, but not in a reckless way. Drinking it makes me happy. It's how it can effect my mood that makes me dislike it.
I think I mentioned in the first post that the biggest downsides I've experienced are laziness, and that after a few days in a week of drinking(rather large amounts or moderate amounts(6-8 drinks)) is it becomes my main focus for the coming weeks.
