People have always asked me why I do not drink. The truth of the matter has been that I never really thought it made any sense to ever start what I think to be a bad habit. For that matter, I have never understood why anybody would bother with alcohol. There are a number of reasons not to drink that are almost all very logical but the one that probably impacted me most was that I was simply afraid to get started. That may not be a good enough reason for you to avoid alcohol so below are a few more reason that have occurred to me over the years.

The purpose of this site is to express the views of Alcohol Free America. More specifically, the concept of AFA is to make the the statement that it is perfectly OK to decide not to drink alcohol. Even more to the point, this organization and site are intended to be a voice that says it is actually better not to drink recreational alcohol. We understand this is not the popular view in America today. We also understand that the overwhelming majority of America blindly accepts that drinking as a way of life. However, we reject that cultural view and thinks there should be a rallying cry to start a truly crass roots movement to discourage the utilization of this legal and mind altering drug for recreational purposes.  Our sincere question to you is "Why bother with Alcohol?".

The hope is that this site will be a resource for individuals who are trying to make the decision about how to live their life in spite of the cultural pressures of our society. The goal is not to attempt to mandate through government regulation nor look down on the people who decide to take the impacts of alcohol lightly. The goal is to explain why we believe it is the wise choice to live life in a safer and more enjoyable way.
