Alcohol is the only legal drug in most places so it really is no wonder that it's this popular.
Its not actually more fun, it just lowers your standards and removes other boundaries you gradually accumulate as you grow up in this society...
Are you talking about how objectively fun something is? Because that's irrelevant, as it turns out having lowered standards for fun makes everything actually
more fun. After all your perspective on how fun something is is the only relevant way of measuring it.
But of course you shouldn't overdo it, as with anything. You're quite right about the binge drinking habit, it's pointless and mostly a result of peer pressure but it's also just the lack of boundaries that you develop as you get more drunk. Anyway, experience teaches you to stop at the right time which is why you see people binge drinking less and less as they get older.
Whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
