Sat Nam,

I think we've been at this kind of question many times.

  1. Anything that contains chemicals can technically be called a drug. Even plants have chemicals. BUT, the point of not taking drugs is to not abuse drugs. When you take crack cocaine, you are ingesting a chemical that alters your consciousness and destroys your brain cells, for some two-minute high that will never last and will leave you addicted. When you take prescription medicine for diabetes, you are regulating a dysfunction in the body so you will not die, or develop severe complications. One drug takes a life for stupidity, while the other is needed in some cases to live. If it bothers you that much, look into alternative (natural) medicine.

  2. Alcohol exists in food, too. Alcohol is in ketchup. The only difference between eating your fries with ketchup and taking six drinks of wine is the measured content. A microscopic amount of alcohol is not going to do anything to you, whereas 30 oz. of wine will overpower your liver's ability to metabolize alcohol, and damage your brain. The body produces alcohol naturally, too. The alcohol in perfume evaporates as soon as it's out of the container. This is an intuitive thing, and is very common-sensical. Don't get too stuck up on the "what-ifs" in your mind.

God bless you.
