Perhaps so, but the addition of alcohol into a family is never a positive thing, not ever.

Genesis 19:32  Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.
Genesis 19:33  And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.

Deuteronomy 29:6  Ye have not eaten bread, neither have ye drunk wine or strong drink: that ye might know that I am the LORD your God.

Proverbs 20:1  ¶Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.

Judges 13:4  Now therefore beware, I pray thee, and drink not wine nor strong drink, and eat not any unclean thing:

Isaiah 28:7  But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment.

You forgot this one:

David in Psalm 104 God brought forth “wine that maketh glad the heart of man”

And several other verses from the Old and New Testament that go against your moral view which is not Biblical, but cultural.

One man pees his pants

Another insists, as a result, we must all start wearing diapers.

You say that the introduction of alcohol into the family is never a positive thing?

Tell that to the families of Italy, who for generations have been vitners. It was the monks of Europe that sent vines over to California that saved the wine industry in Europe from botrytis and other vine diseases.

It’s been an efficient way of transporting and exchanging value for centuries.

Anything can be abused, and we know that somethings must be avoided. Alcohol is something that must be used with judgement. It is not in itself evil.
