    I think the ancient Greeks call wine,"the gift and curse of the Gods". In small amounts ts it's good, but too much leads to problems.

    Use it to enhance good times, not make bad times better.

    Source(s): A person doesn't know when they start to if they will be the minority that becomes alcoholic. Fortunately most don't

    To me it means that alcohol is something that you desparately want until you get it, and once you have it you see how dangerous it actually is.

    Sounds pretty accurate. Handle with caution.

    I don’t drink. Never have. I don’t think I could have achieved what I have if I drank. I fundamentally disagree with Mr. Edwards that alcohol is in any way a good thing.
