Hi. I'm just wondering as I've heard that some SDA's drink. I came to the church from the world and drank socially before I learned that God had a better way of life for me. I completely gave up alcohol though I am not an alcoholic and I don't regret it as I am an example to my children that alcohol is not crucial to have fun, relax, socialize, feel better or any other reasons that people use alcohol. I'm not a legalist though-I use chamomile tea to relax and have taken prescribed narcotic RX responsibly in the rare times needed. I also eat chocolate.
An important aspect of drinking is that it impairs judgement which means that someone could forget something important, say something that they shouldn't or find it harder to resist of various kinds. People who don't drink probably have an easier time not fornicating.
