Would you still drink alcohol if you never got drunk from it? Does anyone actually just like the taste of it?

I drink alcohol for the taste not for the effects of it, and if you drink it for the effects then you might as wel smoke weed0

actually it's pretty much just a north American thing about drinking with the sole purpose of getting drunk. there are lots of cultures around the world where having some form of alcohol with dinner is quite common and is just to enhance the taste. i can speak from second hand knowledge, my mom is second generation italian, and she told me her parents would give her and her sisters just a bit of wine with lots water at dinner when they were kids, and then increase the ratio of wine to water as they got older and to increase their tolerance, to teach them how to drink responsibly, and to develop a taste for alcohol.0
