I think we all tend to asses things and people according to our subjectivity. Just that I find many people of my age to be somewhat boring and stuck in a rut from which most of them have little chance of emerging.Not all, but probably a majority. Lot's of them are on the alcohol nearly every night. Life is so bad they need to anaesthetize themselves on a daily basis to cope. And drinkers of many years standing are often very much opposed to the use of any other drug, which is slightly hypocritical. Not saying the occasional drink is all bad, but as you age the physical consequences get worse. And it does seem to produce a certain type of somewhat narrow psychology with long term regular use. There's a line from an old Dylan song 'he not busy being born is busy dying'. That's a problem as you get older. How to keep life fresh and interesting.
