Why alcohol is bad?

I already discussed why alcohol is bad in my previous posts. However, I wanted to provide a simple explanation that is purely Torah based. Let's take a look at what Torah says about alcohol:
CLV Lv 10:8 Yahweh spoke to Aaron saying: 
CLV Lv 10:9 Do not drink wine or intoxicant, you or your sons with you, when you come into the tent of appointment, so that you may not die. It shall be an eonian statute throughout your generations, 
CLV Lv 10:10 to differentiate between the holy and the profane, and between the unclean and the clean, 
CLV Lv 10:11 and to direct the sons of Israel in all the statutes which Yahweh has spoken to them by means of Moses.
As you can see from the verses above, alcohol is prohibited at work so that one can differentiate between holy and profane and between the unclean and clean. So the most important lesson here is that alcohol clouds the judgement so that the person stops differentiating between good and bad.

Torah most certainly does not prohibit alcohol, in fact priests were required to drink the wine that was brought with offerings, they were just prohibited from drinking alcohol while on duty at the Tabernacle. Otherwise, once they would finish for the day and go to their tents, they could drink wine and other alcoholic beverages.

Please note that organic drugs do not distort one's judgement. So there is a huge difference between these substances. It is most certainly preferable to smoke weed for example rather than to drink (even small amount) daily. So if you can handle organic drugs, switch to it from alcohol - you will feel much better. And your judgement won't be affected.
