Me Thinks I Drink a Lot

Actually, I think I just spend too much money on alcohol. Are there other things on which I would prefer to spend my money?

In France, I understand, alcoholic beverages are considered a food, rather than a drug. There is not the stigma surrounding consumption of alcohol. Never mind that alcohol is allegedly the second biggest cause of preventable deaths in France. To put this statistic in perspective, according to some sources, excessive alcohol consumption is the third leading preventable cause of death in the United States.
