Nope, it takes a lot to offend me. I've heard, and seen a ton over the years.

I'm used to it though. Most people, like all of my friends drink. I've even come from a ton that is known for people being drunk.

So between my friends, and town mates, I am the one odd ball that stands out in the crowd.

Thanks, Blue...

I don't understand the need for drinking. Not that there is anything wrong with it. I have drank before. The taste is horrible how people can willingly do that over and over again is beyond me.

I have also noticed most people drink to escape their day. Escape their stresses, their worries, and to just get away from it all.

I don't need a drink to do that. For it's not solving anything, but masking the problem temporarily.

   Yea i like to have some light beer with Pizza and some kinds of wines are good for the heart so i hear. Generally speaking though alchohol is inharmonious with the spiritual life. You will find very few people who drink and meditate. At least that has been my experience. The more we are taken into the senses the further we are from God. It takes a lot of realization to see God in those who abuse the senses. But i have been there. i am not trying to supress my senses. It is just that the more you experience inner peace and bliss the more you want of it. If you continue to go in the senses you will get very restless. It is very hard to meditate when we are restless.

I agree that if one is drinking all the time it could hinder their spiritual side.... But I wonder if that is more of the addiction part to it. For I have a friend that does drink, and enjoys the drink. However, he is also a devout Buddhist who meditates constantly. And is at his temple once a week. So I don't know how much drinking impairs his meditation, or spiritual side.

It seems that cut and  dry answers just can't fit every situation. That it is what makes this creation so amazing. Just about the time you start thinking you have the answers, new variables enter the picture to challenge your assumptions, attitudes and perceptions.

Interesting about your Buddhist friend, have you visited the temple with him, or meditated with him ? Just curious if you have any general thoughts to share on Buddhist meditation, either here or in the Buddhist meditation section.

Which is why we should never ever stop learning. Always seek to learn and grow..

I have thought about it. I have read a few Buddhist books, and do enjoy some of their philosophies. I have never actually gone to their temple. I don't think I really could adhere to it anymore. For I find it very limiting to just follow one path.. When you do that you get stuck behind your mind, and behind doctrines, and never truly are free. You are held fast in rigid beliefs.

amorabsolutus, interesting comment about following just one path. I like the idea of having an open mind, and learning about a variety of different paths, and ideas. I believe it is possible to combine different teachings to make a path unique to the individual.
