Different people take alcohol for various reason. Some take it to cerebrate. In most cerebrations that I have seen, there must be beer as part of the food and drinks.
Others take alcohol to fight stress. They claim that booze make them forget their probems. It makes them happy.
Some are pushed to drinking by their friends. Peer pressure. They do so to fit in that group. He or she want to be counted as a member of that group hence they have to comply by taking alcohol.
Some drink for leisure and others to pass time. They pass time in bars and pubs with a bottle of guinness.

The most contributing factor that leads people to alcoholism is influence from friends. People always see friends drinking alcohol and they think that it is a good think that earns respect from friends. The youth take alcohol in an attempt to be accepted in their peer group. It is unfortunate that we let people to determine the kind of life we live. Another reason why people drink is to release stress. When some people are faced with problems, they resort to alcoholism with the belief that it helps them to forget their troubles. According to me, this is just a way of postponding the problems instead of solving them.

Some take it so as to gain acceptance by a group (peer pressure) especialy students and most teens.
Others may see it as appreciation of status when they got introduced to alcoholics.

Many people take alcohol for many reasons. Some take alcohol to forget their problems. They think alcohol will make them forget all their problems for a while. Others take alcohol to pass time or do so during their leisure time. Instead of doing something constructive, most opt for alcohol. Others do so because of negative peer pressure from negative friends. They often do so to try and fit in a world they obviously don't belong in. Others take alcohol during parties or celebration. Alcohol is always involved in such occasions.

For the youths they may take alcohol because of the peer group pressure, they really ignorant and may not be after taking alcohol but merely because of bad friends a person starts to take alcohol due to the decision made by some one else. or because he/she has someone to buy for. while on the other side one can take alcohol because he/she is in leisure. Majority of people who take alcohol is because they want to release tension and stress by fighting someone. I remember a person who just went intentionally to take alcohol in order to revenge his neighbor, so the person after taking alcohol come shouting with a knife and cut both ears of six goats oh his neighbor.

Taking alcohol or doing something that causes another person to stumble is not good because somebody who takes alcohol has sorrow, strife, complain, has wound without cause in his/her heart and his/her eyes will see strange things and her utter perverse things. A person who takes alcohol does the work of the flesh is evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, jealous, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions and envy.

Alcohol takes away understanding. I hope we have seen those who wake up early in the morning that they may run after strong drink and they come late in the evening as win inflames them.

Some take alcohol because of peer pressure from his peers, due to wanting to just prove that he can do it and because of stress and you want to have peace in your mind. Alcohol is also taken when one has some friends come and he wants to just have fun.

Some people drink alcohol so as to forget the problems they have. Some just enjoy that feeling of being high or tipsy.

Many are the reasons why different people take alcohol.Some of the reasons include:
Some people take alcohol as a result of influence from their peer and so they want to either show off to their peer that they can also be emerge winners in drinking beer or the reasons that some are bought for by the peers and since they cannot fail to take alcohol they take it to show appreciation.
Some people take it for pleasure and hence they claim that they are releasing stress.They claim that taking alcohol is the best way to forget ones troubles and hence this forms a basis of taking alcohol.
The other category of people who take alcohol is due to the environment they are in.For people who do work or they are employed in the alcohol companies or bars they take it since it is at their disposal and so the only valid reason in this case is that alcohol is readily available with ease.
The fact that one may have funds to buy expensive alcohol also makes it another factor of taking alcohol and hence the wealthy or the rich people take alcohol since they have the funds to do so.
