Sex and Alcohol appeal more to the carnalality of mankind (lust of the flesh), and so for carnally minded people it will bring them temporary

lead to pain suffering and the destuction of family/relationships with others.
True happiness is in peaceful and productive relationships with others. Both of these actions destroy that true joy in life if pursued as the
"source" of carnal pleasure, falsely acciated with "happiness".

the body) at the expense of relationships with others.

Spiritually minded people see it for what it is, and understand the joy and fullness of life God teaches His people to live toward all others

any other relationship possible.
