All that drink are not bad


 

Gonna write about an interesting topic here, probably a bit sensitive for some. You know what, even today, there are people around who think a person who drinks alcohol can’t be good.

I recently heard some people talking about someone else that how he was a good guy and that he has recently started drinking. From their discussion it appeared that they’re thinking he’s not good guy just because he drinks. So I wanted to talk about it for understanding more about what makes them think like that.

Scenario #1

Later on when I got hold of few of those persons, I just told them, there is a guy who:

  1. Is cheerful
  2. Behaves well with others
  3. Helps others in need
  4. Very faithful and sincere
  5. Respects elders
  6. Loves youngers
  7. Takes care of his family well
  8. His family loves him as much
  9. Has a well paying job

What would you call this guy? Good or Bad?

Pat came the answer “good guy, no doubt about that”. I agree too, and such creatures are rare now a days.

Scenario #2

I told them, “alright, so what would you say about a guy with below qualities”:

  1. Talks rudely to everyone
  2. Abusive most of the times
  3. Beats up or scolds his children
  4. Misbehaves elders
  5. No one likes to talk to him
  6. He never drinks

What do you think about this guy?

Without any delay they responded, “a jerk, bad guy”.

Scenario #3

Now I asked the same persons that there is another guy, who:

  1. Is cheerful
  2. Behaves well with others
  3. Helps others in need
  4. Very faithful and sincere
  5. Respects elders
  6. Loves youngers
  7. Takes care of his family well
  8. His family loves him as much
  9. Has a well paying job
  10. Drinks socially, occasionally and responsibly

To my utter surprise those persons took quite some time to think what they should call this guy and finally the result was 50-50. See the difference in the qualities, just the last point is the only difference between the 1st and the 3rd scenarios. This proves that a section in our society still have the stone age thinking that those who drink are 100% bad people, even if they’re responsible otherwise and no matter how many good things they do everyday!!

Of course, those who just drink all that they earn, don’t care about their family, ill mannered, are bad guys for sure. But what makes some people think that a person who does everything responsibly in spite of being a casual drinker, is a bad person?

They must understand that a bad guy can’t have all of the qualities listed in 1 ~ 9. I can hereby hope that our thought process changes for good one day, and we come out from our nostalgia. I’m not saying everyone who drinks is good or who doesn’t drink is good, I’m just hoping that we recognize what is real ‘bad’ than just perceiving something or somebody as ‘bad’.
