Alcohol is the only drug we should never have to explain not using. It’s also a choice of beverage worth examining why we are drinking it if and when we choose to personally partake.
Alcoholics encourage other people to drink; refuse to be impressed or complicit. Alcoholics also tend to get very unnerved or upset (or they pretend to be offended) if they ask you to drink with them and you refuse their offer to entertain their dysfunction.
Oddly enough, liquor is the only drug peers commonly publicly and privately pressure their friends and family into using with them. People with addiction-prone personality types tend to love it while those who are health and lifestyle conscious tend to be wary of including the regular use of it in a diet.
