Drinking Alcohol is a vice.

Many people say that alcoholic drinking is a bad habit. I do not agree to this. Some doctors, have said that if you drink in moderation, it is good for your health, and only when you drink in excess, your health is affected. In India, drinking is still considered as a vice, and today all the shops which sell alcoholic drinks were closed in the entire country, because it is the birth day of our father of the nation "Gandhiji". Usually people do not drink in their houses, and always go to a bar to quench their thirst. What is the practice in your country. Is drinking considered a vice/sin or is it accepted by the establishment.

In my country it is not against the law to drink, however you do have to be a certain age to drink. I don't think it would be a sin to drink in moderation, but if you drink in excess it could lead to bad things and your health could be affected.

Of course, your culture is entirelly different and your weather conditions also play a vital part in the case of drinking. I know that people in USA, drink in the winter to keep warm. Thanks for the response.
