Are there religious reasons for not drink alcohol? Why?
Religion is the most common reason people give for not drinking. Overall, in the UK, Muslims are the religious group most likely to not drink. Those from South Asia, mostly Pakistan and Bangladesh, are the ethnic group most likely to report they’ve never drank alcohol. They don’t eat foods with ethanol, they don’t wear perfumes containing alcoholic ingredients and they stay away from all forms of intoxicating substances. This abstinence is a command from God, the law maker for Muslims’ health and environment. Buddhists typically avoid consuming alcohol.
