Alcohol is a natural analgesic and sedative. Alcohol is also a natural antiseptic. In biblical times a small amount of wine was added to the water much the same way we add chlorine to water today. Water with a little wine in it was safer to drink as it destroyed bacteria and many parisites.

Unfortunately, many people enjoyed the sensation of escape and relaxation. Biblically we are told to "drink a little wine for thy stomach's sake". Of course that would be part of the antiseptic nature of the alcohol. Another biblical animation was that you shouldn't be a "winebibber", meaning that you shouldn't be an alcoholic.

Most of the traditional religions include alcohol in their practices, almost as an admonition to seek moderation.
because people like to be someone their not because their Friends
