The Satanic Bible is very clear about drug-use. It is my understanding that the Church does not condone this behavior. However, I have seen many posts by Church members (Names are colored orange, If I am correct), in my time here where they state that they have used and still use alcohol.

It is my understanding that Alcohol is just as much a drug as marijuana, cocaine, or cigarettes - and in some cases more dangerous than any of the latter. Of course, there are "social drinkers", but I consider "social drinking" to be even worse than compulsive drinkers - A "orgy mentality" if you will.

Does the Church of Satan condone the consumption of Alcohol? If yes, at any level, what is their stand on smoking cigarettes? Or perhaps smoking marijuana "socially"?

I'd like to also add that I am drug-free (though I've had my past issues, I've recognized them and dealt with them), and I am a light cigarette smoker.

Thank you for your time.
