Jehovah, the supreme God of The Bible does not forbid the drinking of alcohol. Remember, even Jesus turned water into wine, and wine was consumed during the "Last Supper"as well as at other gatherings.

In line with this, Jehovah's Witnesses do not forbid the use of alcohol (including stronger forms such as rum or vodka) as long as the person consuming the alcohol does not do so to the point of intoxication.

Another Answer:

Yes, we are, although some of us choose not to drink alcohol simply because we don't want to. (Me, for an example) But there is no law against drinking alcohol in moderation among those who are members of the worldwide organization of Jehovah's Witnesses.

I would love to help out more but I'm from Sweden and is having a hard time writing in English.

If you are asking do Jehovah's Witnesses drink alcohol, then the answer is, in line with scripture each witness is free to drink alcohol in moderation, should he or she so choose.

Jehovah's Witnesses are allowed to drink alcohol in moderation. Let it be noted however, that they are encouraged to not stumble one another. So, as far as drinking is concerned, they are allowed, unless it offends someone else to see them partake.

If they know that it is offensive to someone else, and they partake anyway, they might be counseled by the Elders of the congregation if the stumbled one takes it that far.

The history of alcohol in the Watchtower Society is long and sorted. The second President of the Society, Joseph Rutherford was a known alcoholic and binge drinker. He eventually died from intestinal cancer, a direct result of his long life of heavy alcohol consumption. There is actually a photograph of Mr. Rutherford and staff sitting around a keg of beer, toasting the camera, during Prohibition He even stated at one time that in his opinion, Prohibition was the work of Satan.

So....yes. JW's are 100% allowed to drink alcohol, just as long as they don't get drunk.

Yes; there is no prohibition in the Jehovah's Witness religion regarding the moderate consumption of Alcoholic Beverages. Whether or not individuals drink alcohol, therefore, is a personal matter.

Yes, in moderation.
Some do, as long as it is legal to do so and in moderation. Drunkenness is not acceptable behaviour.
Yes, in moderation and if legally allowed. Some choose not to.

Jehovah's Witnesses have no objection to drinking alcohol in moderation; wine, beer, other spirits. In fact most of us enjoy this gift from God.

We are strongly counseled though NOT to DRINK and DRIVE. Not even a minimal amount.

Out of respect for the sanctity of blood, we strongly object to drinking, eating, or transfusing blood.

Jesus turned the water in to wine. At the last supper he used red wine. The Apostle Paul advised Timothy to use a little wine for the stomachs sake. In psalm 104:15 it says that Jehovah God gave wine to make the heart of mortal man rejoice. Wine has over 500 compounds that are beneficial to the human body. Live typhoid cells put into wine are destroyed within a few moments. IMPORTANT SCRIPTURAL POINT. The Bible says that drunkards will not inherit Gods Kingdom. Also to drink wine in moderation. And whiskey and any other alcoholic drink for that matter.
