Drugs are bad, don’t do them. Alcohol can become an addiction very easily. Alcohol often gives us license to sin. We blame it on the alcohol. Well, here's a simple solution - don't drink more than you can handle. One drink is plenty. None is better.
If it doesn't cause problems with others (those who are recovering alcoholics or folks who believe any amount of alcohol consumption is sinful), I think an occasional drink, in the safety of your home, is fine as long as it stays occasional.
