Why do people feel the only way to have fun is when you are drinking?

I don't understand the idea that the only way to go out and have fun is to get drunk out of your mind, its not needed to feel good.

  • I struggle with the same question. I don't understand that either. I am not a drinker. I may drink at home but it is only a wine cooler or I make strawberry daiquiris. I hate liquor and I cannot stand beer. but my MIL has to have beer where ever she goes. even if she comes to our house, which is right next door, she has to know if we have beer in our fridge.

  • No its not but Ive noticed some people cannot unwind or relax without drinking. The difference is unwinding is just getting relaxed and not just getting tore up. Also drinking and being drunk is just like a mask. They can be the person they often "want" to be and have fun when normally they may can not.

  • I am a recovering alcoholic. Somewhere I crossed a line where it was not drinking to have fun.

  • They are alcoholics. I have lots of fun without drinking, I have a blast watching all the idiots that are drunk doing stupid things and not remembering them.

  • I don't think that every single one of them is a true alcoholic, perhaps they are social drinkers who are too social.
    I myslef RARLEY drink but in moderation it's ok. If your stupid drunk and around children it's not ok and I only drink in my house when I'm home for the night and not driving anywhere, my children are asleep and I don't get to the point I can't care for them in an emergency(with the exception of driving) but I always have someone on call for that too.

    Some people just drink too much period. Those give themselves bad names and cause most of the problems they are drinking to escape it's sadly a hard cycle to break for some.
