Alcohol attacks only the symptom, not the underlying cause, and
brings problems of its own. I say Buddhism, or more precisely
Buddhist techniques, attack the cause, and bring no serious or
long-term problems of their own. If you want to argue with that,
I'll need specifics, not just variously phrased statements of
distaste for anything associated with religion.
