Tonight I am drinking my first ever can of alcohol, it's a bit of a struggle as I'm not keen on the taste. What are the benefits of alcohol?
From the way you've worded your question, I get the impression that you're a bit hesitant about trying alcohol.
You shouldn't drink just because you feel pressured into doing so — you won't enjoy yourself so much, and it's a much better idea to wait until you feel ready.
What Are The Benefits Of Alcohol?
Health-wise, there aren't any. However, drinking can be beneficial on a social level, providing you don't go overboard!
The positives of alcohol include:
- Reduced social inhibition
- Feeling relaxed
- Increased confidence
- Feelings of happiness
- Increased pleasure in activities
- Lower anxiety
If you do choose to drink, be responsible and have fun — there's no point drinking if you don't enjoy it, and your friends should respect your choice. Besides, when it comes to wanting a ride to a party somewhere, they'll be happy to have you as a sober driver!
