.........

PerhapsBuddhism is more studing / discovering your emotion of hope , emotion to drink .....not your knowledge of the alcohol.

vertical line moderation implies there is something valid in the consumption, this is not true.

if you can be concerned enough to moderate then abstinance is the next practical point of aim.

i mean why moderate ? if it is ok for people ?


been to a pub or nightclub strip lately ?

try this snowy, go to your friends place for a party or any where people will drink and you do not drink and just watch the change in behaviours and in particular watch the mental state of the imbibers. it is a self induced retardation of mental faculties.

i personally think it is much much worse, i have drunk booze before and it feels like torture to me literally torture it does something to my peace (i not sure what) i feel embarrassed.

In my current understanding , progressing without having any faith / beliefs and awake to aware , aware to realize , realize to accept , accept to further aware ...progressing into greater realization perhaps that is the truth ....Buddhism is the truth ........
