Any number of reasons, some people drink it responsibly, an occasional drink alone to relax, or a weekend drink with friends, and some people drink it everyday, because it's addictive, and they have issues which they haven't dealt with properly.

In moderation it can actually be healthy. I find it relaxes me, and when I am socializing it gives me the confidence to talk to other that I am normally too shy to do otherwise. In moderation it doesn't have to make you a drunk idiot, it doesn't have to give you a hangover, it doesn't have to wreck your liver. I also like having a couple beers and admire the sun set sometimes and listen to music on my porch. Alcohol has effected my life positively. But do not abuse it, or it'll abuse you back.

Good way to relax. The drinks taste good. It's social… it's quite fun to feel a little tipsy (not so keen on the feeling of being really drunk though) I think there's lots of reasons! And a few drinks are fine.. it's the dependancy on it that can be a problem and if it's your only escape from real life then it's bad. But for most people its just a nice social thing to do sometimes!
