"Alcohol is not the answer; it jsut makes you forget the question” is a saying that has been printed on several gift items, such as T-shirts, buttons and posters. The saying has been cited in print since at least 2004 and is of unknown origin.
In 2009, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (1869-1948) was credited with saying, “Alcohol is not the answer to life’s question.” Vijay Mallya, an Indian industrialist born in 1955, was said to have responded, “At least it helps you forget the question.” Neither Gandhi’s statement nor Mallya’s reply appear to be documented in print before 2009—well after the alcohol joke had been included in many lists of one-line sayings.
Similar alcohol one-liners include “Alcohol is never the answer, unless the question is ‘What is C2H5OH?‘,“ “I know alcohol isn’t the answer, but it’s my best guess” and “I doubt vodka is the answer, but it’s worth a shot.”
