Starts with fashion. Develops as passion and continues as addiction. Alcohol ruined many families.

A lot of research has been done to find and explore the reason why people drink alcohol. From research conducted in the Netherlands among 15 to 25 year-olds, the following answers came up:

Sociability (71%)
Like the taste (51%)
Feel at ease (12%)
Get intoxicated (6%)
Get drunk (2%)
Because everybody does it (6%)
To forget problems (0%)

Alcohol gets risky when you need more to feel good. If you can't do that anymore on your own, and you use the alcohol for it, at a certain point you run the risk of starting to drink more and more each time to still feel the effects. This can be the beginning of an addiction. If you drink to feel good, you should ask yourself if you can also feel at ease without alcohol.

Drinking alcohol make a feel of thirsty.Because Alcohol is a diuretic. By inhibiting the production of vasopressin (antidiuretic hormone), it can cause dehydration. It's the dehydration that makes thirsty & induce to drink more and more ,then it turns to addiction.....forever......

Many people drink as their way to fit in with others. It often boosts their confidence and helps reduce stresses they may usually have in a social setting.

The next highest reason many people drink is because they like the taste. Be it someone with a love for beer or the many mixed drinks available, people do simply enjoy the taste of these beverages.

Next, people drink to relax, or feel at ease. One of the problems with this is that many people get used to feeling at ease and relaxed and start to rely on alcohol to make them feel that way on a daily basis. At this point, the reliance on alcohol can eventually turn into an addiction which can lead to destructive behaviours and health problems.

To get a buzz or to simply to get drunk are the next reasons many people like to drink, followed by drinking out of peer pressure. The occurrence of peer pressure to drink can be common place in todays youth society
