Why do people drink alcohol and do drugs?

I dont understand why people get drunk or do drugs. Dont you think they could find a different way to occupy themselves. I dont think I will ever drink beer and I am positive that I will never do drugs. I just dont get why somebody would do it. Beer is a little better than drugs, but alcohol is pretty much a drug. The only reason it is more acceptable in my eyes is that it is legal. How often do you drink? When do you drink? Why do you drink?

i have a poem in answer to this :- I read this in the paper, And it really made me think; That a quarter of all road accidents Can be blamed... directly... on drink. Now statistics, they tell you, will never lie, But be wary of how they're used; You need your wits about you, It's easy to get confused. If a quarter of accidents are had by drunks, Then sober people have all the rest; That's 75% if I'm not mistaken, ... (My maths never were the best). But I'm not entirely stupid, And I plan to stay alive; So I'm gonna start driving drunk, I'm three times more likely to survive. but it just a funny poem don take it seriously.........cheers

Well it makes sense to me! maybe the drinking age should be lowered too! Just kidding. Good poem though! I was always bad at poetry.
