Is drinking a benefit to how you generally feel or a negative. I ask because while I know that alcohol is a depressant, I can't think of how often it's saved me from doing something stupid. So why are people so hard on drinking by yourself? I mean it's like drinking in a party is cool, but drinking by yourself isn't. I don't understand. It's not like drinking at 8 in the morning (I'm 8 hours behind most of you fine folks), it's night. No harm. Just drinking and being happy. But not really drunk. Just having a good time.
