Catholic Attitudes Towards Alcohol

Alcohol should be use to celebrate, not medicate, or put another way, one should drink with friends because he is happy, not to become happy.

If ever we use alcohol as stress relief, or because we are sad, or such, it's already a kind of abuse, even if it's not seriously sinful. That attitude begins our dependence, and can easily lead to alcoholism.

Agree violently, and additionally there are health benefits when alcohol is consumed in moderation, specifically to the risk of heart disease and possibly even strokes and diabetes.  I believe that pertains specifically to red wine, though.

I'm surprised you didn't bring up the wine consecrated during the Mass... too easy?
