There is nothing wrong with getting drunk, for some people!All of your posts have been so sillily generalised. Just because you lack any self-control, and can't stop yourself doesn't mean it's like that with everyone else.
If you went past a few drinks and actually are "drunk" then you either lost self control or are going for a drunken state which in a general sense is bad. And no where did I say there atent people who are capable of drinking responsibly or that EVERYONE on the planet should never have a single drink.
The disease debate is pointless, it just turns into a debate on what the definition of disease is which is meaningless, botyom line is that some people are born with an inibility to control their drinking and science has shown this much. You can call it disease or call it something else, it doesn't matter that is just a label.
