Um, what? Who is forcing anyone to drink? I associate smoking with a desire to “be cool” or “fit in” but definitely not drinking. At least here in India, not drinking is seen as MORE desirable any day. If I do give up drinking, it’ll be to save my health. What does society have to do with it? This made no sense to me. Also, I have a problem with intolerance of any kind. Vegans, vegetarians, non-drinkers having a problem with those that aren’t part of their tribe. And I’m a vegetarian, for the record. Giving up something may be good for you but it doesn’t make you better than the others. Lose that superiority complex.
