The consumption habits related to alcoholic beverages and drugs reflect social and cultural characteristics of a society. In these reflections the Venezuelan culture is analyzed through observations of individual and collective behaviour related to the consumption of alcohol (and to a lesser extent drugs). Without the ambition to carry through a detailed comparative study, the objective of the present project is rather to realize an analytical presentation of certain aspects of the Venezuelan situation, with certain illustrative comparisons with the Swedish culture. The document is a result of a research journey to Venezuela in 2000. With the focus on the Venezuelan culture we likewise aim at developing our analytical capacity and comprehension of the Swedish culture. In the light of a distinct culture the native society of the observer can emerge more clearly. The study is principally a reflection on traits of consumption and cultural habits in the context of alcohol and drugs in Venezuela.
