Life before drugs and alcohol...?

I was just thinking about a Gary Larson cartoon I love, which depicted a family... pretty much like the Simpsons... sitting on a sofa in a minimalist living room, all staring intently at a bare corner of the room... The caption said: "Life before television"....! That got me to thinking about what the world might have looked like if we hadn't had drugs and alcohol.... hmmm....

Would we have been sitting around, just waiting.... like that family in the cartoon....? Waiting for what, I wonder? Having been in recovery from addiction for some 9 years now, I know what life is like AFTER stimulants... but I wonder what life would've been like had alcohol not existed... Probably a whole lot easier.... :)
