There are many reasons for drinking alcohol, but in general they can be reduced to two directions: since a person turns to drinking, it means he is not satisfied with his position - either he is bad and he drinks because he is bad or does not feel that he is well enough and he drinks because of it. Easier to say, he either drowns out the pain or seeks more happiness than he has.
A good salary is great, but as a meaning and a whole goal, it is naturally not enough. There is a lack of communication, relationships, meanings, satisfaction, an element of creativity, no prospects - but you never know what else. A man wants to fly, but he "sits behind bars in a dungeon" ... even if dry, with air conditioning and compote ..
Because alcohol gives relaxation in muscles, freedom of thought and liberation of action. Not everyone can be as they are in public. Often, alcohol allows you to show everyone and even yourself how you really are without cuts.
But if you think about it, alcohol is delicious! A glass of excellent Spanish rioja with fine cheese, it's incredibly delicious. The most important thing is to meet in the company of good people and enjoy the taste of conversation and wine.
