Drugs and Alcohol: Instant Expert
People have been using substances to lift their spirits for millennia. Techniques for fermenting beer and related tipples are known from Egypt and Sumeria 4000 years ago, and they soon spread across the inhabited world. Coca leaves (the source of cocaine), tobacco, and caffeine were also popular with ancient cultures.
Humans may even have an evolutionary pre-disposition to seek out narcotics, even though they can be addictive and damaging. Some people may have genes which make them more genetically prone to drug addiction than others. Even some animals - jaguars, lemurs and bees, for example - have a habit of getting high.

I find it helps me cope with the fact that this world is run by greed and hate.

I found that it made me mad by the fact that the world is run by greed and hate. Now that I quit, I found that I'm just mad by the fact that it's run by greed and hate.
I do agree with Catherine though about its predisposition for some and I'll add its probable spiritual side effects. One thing about the ancients is that most pre-civilizations only used it for ceremonies, unlike us addiction prone "civilized" cultures. Survival was first, entertainment a secondary consideration and getting out of it was to reach a spiritual plane.
We have juxtaposed that and feed our heads first, worry about our stomachs second and our survival is a final consideration.

There are people who actually are concerned with our survival? Guess I should get out more...

Yeah, OUR survival, as neo-con assholes, ready for the rapture at any moment. THEY care. About THEIR survival and anyone elses demise who stands in the way of THEIR rights to have churches, perverts, pedophile leaders, obedient slaves, stepford wives, flag wavers, fag haters, cowardly bigots and liquor stores. Right next to their Churches.
Sermon at 11. Last call for alcohol, drink it up folks!
Who needs drugs and reality when you've got all this. Lets here it for survival of the truly fittest. What a breeding pool for the new age survivors.
