One of the main vices in the program, along with smoking, is alcoholism. Nearly everyone drinks, and quite a lot. Given the reputation those organized criminals had, it made perfect sense. Aside from that, it is obvious that alcohol was a significant factor back then. The Birmingham cast members love whiskey very much. Particularly Tommy, who pours a drink for each customer who enters his bar, we hardly ever see them without a glass.
