None of our 15 choices captures my relationship with alcohol. I have no problem with people drinking alcohol in moderation and with a designated driver. I fall asleep from drinking a small amount of alcohol. I do not understand the attraction of drinking something that makes you feel numb.

Find one that reflects that view and I'll add it.

FYC:

"It is a vile drink that turns even the most respectable men into complete scoundrels." - Elizabeth Swann, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)
She talks about rum in this case, but I guess it could apply to any alcoholic beverage.

I suggested this circa 2010-2011 after watching Barfly, it didn't make it as a poll but I can remember the 4 or 5 quotes I put immediately on the list (you have the Homer's one already):

THE LOST WEEKEND: One drink's too many, and a hundred's not enough.
THE AFRICAN QUEEN: A man takes a drop too much once in a while, it's only human nature. 
BARFLY: Anybody can be a non-drunk. It takes a special talent to be a drunk. It takes endurance. Endurance is more important than truth. 
DAYS OF WINE AND ROSES: The world looks so dirty to me when I'm not drinking.

Until a more moderate quote comes along, I guess this one will get my vote:

"Don't be such a square. Everybody who's anybody drinks." - Lorraine Baines, Back to the Future
