Why do people get drunk?

Is it possible for people to enjoy a drink without getting drunk, or is the temptation too strong? Either way the end result can be catastrophic.

I think lots of People get Drunk to be Cool and to Relax. At least I know I do and People I know do the same. After all, Alcohol does literally numb the senses.

for my own good, I don't drink and smoke and I'm happy this way. I don't care if I'm in a group of 20 people or even with friends, and everyone around me is drinking. I don't need to drink to have fun and I'm determined to say no every time I'm offered a drink, even if I get a weird look from some people some times.

I think lots of People get drunk because it is a Social thing to do.
Specially in many European Countries such as UK, Denmark, Germany, etc. drinking and getting drunk is a key part of the Social fabrik.

Hi,
Forgetting ones personal problems is one thing, but the long term damage could be immense, and could also impinge on their nearest and dearest lives. But worse still image if they drive??

Most people decide behaviour on an emotional basis so they are not taking a rational approach that, for instance if they drink and drive they might kill someone.

Why do people get drunk?

Many people set out to get high, not drunk, from alcohol for whatever personal reasons that cause them to want to escape from. Each person has a limit at which they go from having a buzz to becoming intoxicated. Alcohol effects judgment. The alcohol causes people go past their limit and arrive at drunkhood. Once they've gone past their tipping point, they keep going until the alcohol stops flowing or until they get so drunk they can barely stand up. The next day they have a hangover which lasts until about 5PM at which time they can start drinking again. This time they have the original problems to escape from plus the knowledge that they are becoming a drunk and for any untoward behavior they did while drunk. The body adapts to the level of alcohol that is the tipping point and then needs more alcohol to get the same effect. Thus this cycle becomes a physical and psychological addiction.

Some people drink to forget sad or horrible circumstances. Some people just like the taste. And some people are genetically prone to this particular addiction -- their bodies crave alcohol.

Then there are the immature -- whether actually children or just adults who never grew up. These drunks think it is funny to lose control and act like idiots. Similar to people who desperately want to be liked -- or to conform.

For me I do it, because it makes me feel relaxed.
But I do know too many friends that have gotten really sick from it. So I would say, the Key to drinking Alcohol is to do it in moderation. Too much of it and it quickly becomes poison.
