Catholic Attitudes Towards Alcohol
#3
The alcohol flows strongly at just about every Catholic event I’ve seen. While alcohol consumption in moderation is ok, what is moderation for some may be a very serious excess for another. Alcoholism is also a significant problem in society. Unfortunately, the Church apparently has no concern for that.

“...alcoholism is the third leading lifestyle-related cause of death’ in the United States, coming after tobacco and unhealthy diets and/or lack of exercise. A person who succumbs to excessive alcohol use loses a potential of 30 years of potential life, and as many as 40 percent of all the hospital beds across the country are used to treat health conditions that develop from alcoholism.”[/font][/size][/color]

“The epidemic is such that as many as 17 percent of men in the general population and 8 percent of women will meet the criteria for alcoholism in their lifetime.”
