most people have fun over a bottle of alcoholic drinks. it is because they believe that getting drunk can work as a great escape when they are facing problems and difficulties in life. But what about if the spirit of the alcohol fades away after a couple of hours or so, do you think your problem is over? well definitely not of course, maybe it can just make calm from worrying about your problems and can help you have fun with your friends but it does not necessarily mean it is a great escape to the reality of life. there is no way out of reality and that is what you should always keep in mind to develop a sense of responsibility.

Yes, there are people who drink when there are problems. Often its a way to forget the problem or in most cases to get drunk and temporarily forget the problem. But you are absolutely right, drinking does not solve the problem. It will just let you forget for a few moments and when you are no longer drunk, the problem is still there. So it is clear that drinking does not take away the problem. It can even cause health problems later on.

Yeah, I usually do it. But not my own problem. Many friends do invite me or I invite them for a couple of drinks (that would end up drunk) if he has a problem. For me it one thing to loosen-up and stimulate the brains of getting all the possible options to resolve the problem. Surely, the problem is not over the next day we woke-up but will have a better options on how to deal with the problem.
