For joy I drink...
I drink when it's time to drink.
When is the time?
Whenever something unexpected happened, i may drink.

Hahah yes. For example, If there is no alcohol left, people start to say " well, I have to go, mom is sick.. and me.. I have to take care of teh children... oh.. I have to work tomorrow, I've got to go.." and then the owner of the party says Hey.. "I am gonna buy another box of beer" and the guest say "Oh.. Ok.. I can stay all night long, my mom is better now..I don't have to work tomorrow anyway, the children are sleeping and etc..."

Hahaha..!

I think that's so true. People like alcohol somehow... And I'd stay if they gave me some wine.

Exist many reasons that people use for to explain why consume alcohol. Some say that this bad habit help to forget troubles or failed love affaires. Other people drink alcohol because is a normal habit between adults in social activities. These reasons are not justifications for to drink alcohol but is difficult eliminate this habit. If people abuse of alcohol drinks become a big problem. This situation causes domestic violence, terrible illnesses, car accidents amongst others. Some bodies resist more alcohol than others. Consequently, the alcoholic person suffer all your life if don’t getting alcohol rehab treatment. :?
