actually, i strongly disagree.
getting drunk as an end in itself is valid imo. parties or whatever are like that for me, you go with the intention of getting drunk. but i enjoy beer and whiskey, and i usually drink just because i like it. or, when i go out with friends, drinking is just the "background activity" because the reason for going out is the socializing.
having a beer while watching a movie, or a glass of whiskey at the end of the day doesnt get you drunk. im not saying anything against getting drunk mind you, i do that several times a month. what im saying is that its not "the single most important thing". not to me atleast.
