 But it is not for our own sakes alone, nor even for the wider benefit of our family and friends, that we should heed the Buddha'​s injunction to abstain from intoxicants. To do so is also part of our personal responsibility for preserving the Buddha'​s Sasana. The Teaching can survive only as long as its followers uphold it, and in the present day one of the most insidious corruptions eating away at the entrails of Buddhism is the extensive spread of the drinking habit among those same followers. If we truly want the Dhamma to endure long, to keep the path to deliverance open for all the world, then we must remain heedful. If the current trend continues and more and more Buddhists succumb to the lure of intoxicating drinks, we can be sure that the Teaching will perish in all but name. At this very moment of history when its message has become most urgent, the sacred Dhamma of the Buddha will be irreparably lost, drowned out by the clinking of glasses and our rounds of merry toasts. But it is not for our own sakes alone, nor even for the wider benefit of our family and friends, that we should heed the Buddha'​s injunction to abstain from intoxicants.
