    P. S until you enter a thread its usually quite a nice discussion... Why do you always feel the need to be rude? I was simple ASKING why people drink... Like what purpose?

    Couldn't you just answer my question without getting all rude?

    It's not that simple though. I may not drink, or have one. Unfortunately I can't control the other 200 people there, some that may choose to get drunk and go on like idiots. I'm not a fuddy duddy. I just can't see why every single event in aussie culture needs grog? Each to their own, if other parents are fine with it then ok. I'm not.

    I don't have a huge issue with the idea of it but it's also not something I'd think they'd have at a school event. Im not opposed to a drink at all but yeah...

    That's subjective. And I find judging others lifestyles to be very rude.

    Perhaps OP, a religious school might be better suited to your needs?

    Im not judging your choice... Im literally asking for what purpose do people drink alcohol? All it ever did to me as a young person was make me dizzy and tired.... Surely ppl don't drink it to feel dizzy and tired??

    I know you weren't directing that to me Beetle, but I'm not judging. I just have huge hang ups with alcohol and I don't feel a school fete needs it. I'm not trying to remove anyone's right to drink. I just don't understand why every social event has to revolve around alcohol...

    Now as 5 said, if it was a fund raiser with wine tasting for only adults, with drinks served, I wouldn't bat an eyelid. I might even attend and have a glass as I appreciate a good wine.

    That isn't what your OP was at all. It wasn't "why do you drink".
