Lets face it - that's the truth, we just want to get high.
A massive fuss is made over humans taking drugs - but not alcohol. The law states that in most countries drugs are illegal - but not alcohol.
When you take opioids you become euphoric and happy, when you smoke weed you chill out and reinvent the world, on hallucinogens you explore far corners of the mind. On alcohol there there is a mixture of weed and opiate things going on. but irrespective of the exact state of mind these drugs pass onto us humans, the bottom line is we do it to get high. Call it relaxed, but it is a forced unconscious transaction between drug and human - the substance forces the human mind to artificially change.
It blows my mind how there is such a differentiation between drugs and alcohol in society that people actually believe there to be a difference.
That's marketing for you.
