    I have no problems with moderate consumption... well except one.

    I've known too many people who begin by having a beer or two once in a while.

    Check back in 10 years, and they're having a six-pack every evening.

    Check back in 10 more years, and they're drinking themselves into a stupor every night and are on the verge of full-blown alcoholism.

    Now, this isn't everyone by a long shot... but I've seen it happen this way to many people.

    It's hard to become a drunk if you don't drink at all.

    Alcoholics cannot control their consumption. There are people, though, many people, who are not alcoholics and can absolutely handle drinking one or two drinks once in a while or even 1 drink a night. I personally only drink alcohol less than I drink soda, especially caffeinated soda, which is probably an average of about 1 or 2 a week tops, and even that is not often. My great grandmother drank only one beer every day of her life. And I knew lots of guys in the Navy who drank heavily around their early twenties, but by their mid to late twenties they drank a lot less, if at all.

    Now, I wouldn't suggest that everyone start drinking, even in moderation. Some people do have addictive personalities and/or alcoholism in their families. My family actually has several alcoholics. But all those family members who chose not to drink, such as my mother and her brother, have/had other addictions, including gambling and drugs.

    Alcohol has no ill effects?

    No potential addiction?
    No drunk drivers?
    No potential health problems?
    No potential domestic abuse problems?

    Did you mean something else by ill effects regarding alcohol use?

    I think weed produces the most boring people.Its amazing listening to 40/50 year old comedians boast about how they smoke pot.

    Those are not ill effects that all, or even most people who use alcohol have. In fact, in moderation, alcohol use can improve health and reduce the chance of heart problems.
