Australia is pretty well known for it's drinking culture. Alcohol is a weird one too. The world health organisation recently changed the "Safe" dosage of alcohol from 3 standard drinks to 0... It's pretty well known for it's poison to both the biological body, the mind and society. Bars are interesting - Take the alcohol out of the equation and there's not a lot left. making bars by nature a toxic environment. A friend recently pointed out that if a berry had the same effect as a high dosage of alcohol - The plant would immediately be classified toxic and no one would bother with it again... This to be fair isn't enough to stop her from drinking. I know many people who detest alcohol for it's negative qualities yet in a social situation fall back on it. I've become increasingly confused as to where the appeal in "going out Friday nights" lies, in the social environment or the substance. I occasionally have a few drinks to make things bearable when around others in such a lowered state of consciousness and it sure works a treat. I am able to join in on half assed conversation surrounding and praising the ego. More importantly - what are your thoughts on the topic? (This comes from a point of fear of becoming an outcast in society. This fear further proving how huge of an impact alcohol has on us as a society)
