ently, I have found some really interesting article on Australian culture based on drinking issue through the interview of

There are some really interesting point that I want to share, as there are a changes in alcohol drinking habit among Australia from the past. In the present now, Australia alcohol drinking average are falling which means that young generation nowadays becoming to acknowledged the negative affected of alcohol. However, there are still some group of young adult who think that drinking alcohol is cool, or social pressure where every of their friends are drinkers.

Moreover, in Australian culture there has been a change since the 1960s with the introduction of a wine culture and a move to integrate alcohol with food. To drink in moderation, with food, as part of a pleasurable activity that doesn’t necessarily have the purpose of getting drunk, is a new trend. It may seem pretty basic but this development does seem to have happened with some degree of significance over the last 150 years.

Thus, It does seem that alcohol drinking are a trend but would it necessary for people to drink just to socialized ? there still any other activities that they could experiences in order to have some fun with their friends .. and I wish many drinkers could possibly find some other activities to be socialized other then just drinking alcohol ūüôā ps, stay clean life everyone .. ..

Question time from curious Buddhism .. .

Posted on Updated on

As I am a Buddism and I would love to shared some of my conversation with the monk in Annandale thai temple in Sydney located in Annandale.

Does Buddhism and Islam are both prohibited in drinking alcohol?

Buddhism and Islam have in common is not drinking alcohol , Christianity not prohibited . (Or, if there are errors, mistaken for this point please help me to makes that correct )

Does drinking alcohol will have a punishment in next life ?

Answer : blame the alcohol , do not wait for the next life . You can see yourself in this matter . It can make the binge eaters in this country go to hell . You will not believe there is a hell after death. I have many people in this country go to hell because of the slavery of alcohol, drugs drunk. That any religion will do . if you do not just believe  just consider from experience you have in the with drinking alcohol. It would be enough to be considered by itself that alcohol effected negative matter in this life and  should not just believe what the Buddha taught .

There are so many people who do not drink alcohol even in Europe, Americas. Christians , not least to stop drinking, because of it patently which are various negative effected which can be seen in the present time from drinking alcohol. However, me as a Buddhism I would say that religious is a part of our life that makes us as a society stay in peaceful environment and the rule of not to drink alcohol will led all buddhism and Muslim going to hell, I would say that it can be true who know? but one thing I know is that hell in this case is a very bad situation that drinker need to faces when drinking alcohol.

So why not non-drinkers would be proud about this ? and stay clean isn’t it good.. . you are not an only one.

So non-drinkers stand up and be proud :)

So non-drinkers, be proud to tell people you don’t drink. Remember your reasons for your choice. Small subtle changes to your approach to your social and business life can totally wipe out any issues (relating to your alcohol abstinence). For instance, if you are at a networking event where alcohol is served, instead of feeling uncomfortable, use your non-drinking as a subtle conversation starter, que a designated driver joke or so and off you go. With your social life, ensuring you have a few non-drinker friends in your group means you can easily steer social events to a non-drinking environment.

What reasons do you have for not-drinking? What ‘coping’ techniques do you have? I’d be Interested to hear your reasons and experiences.
