The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and you say, 'Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and "sinners.
Jesus speaking about himself in Luke 7:34, NIV

Do you suppose that abuses are eliminated by destroying the object which is abused? Men can go wrong with wine and women. Shall we then prohibit and abolish women? The sun, the moon, and the stars have been worshipped. Shall we then pluck them out of the sky?
Reformational leader Martin Luther

Psychologists have measured alcohol’s effects and note that it does two things; first is causes you to rate your actual self higher relative to your ideal self (the disparity being a primary cause of melancholy).
Second, it causes to look at yourself less in general
(which takes your eye off of the disparity altogether).
Paraphrased from Social Psychology, Brehm, Kassin, Fein and Burke, 2008

Come, all you who are thirsty,
come to the waters;
and you who have no money,
come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk
without money and without cost.
God through the prophet Isaiah 55:1, NIV

A jug of sour wine was standing by. Someone put a sponge soaked with the wine on a javelin and lifted it to his mouth. After he took the wine, Jesus said, "It's done . . . complete."
Bowing his head, he offered up his spirit.”
The last thing Jesus drank on the cross, in John 19:29-30, MSG
