Under the influence

For thousands of years, people have drunk alcohol and used other substances and techniques to temporarily alter their state of consciousness. But this isn't a universal habit. For example, some people enjoy drinking regularly; others find that it just gives them a headache. Some people steer clear for health or religious reasons, and for some people in some places drinking is against the law.

If you drink, what is the main thing you enjoy about it or the main reason you drink? If you don't, what is your main reason for avoiding it?

This week's theme is under the influence.
