People receiving benefits should be prohibited from spending their money on alcohol, cigarettes, etc.

For those who may be confused by the title, I live in the UK and as part of our countries social security there is a benefits system in place which essentially allows people who do not have jobs or any form of income to receive money from the government to get by, and do not have to pay taxes. and all of this money comes from taxes payed by everyone else in the country.

Whilst I don’t have a huge issue with this system, I’m not particularly all for it, but I feel that there need to be stricter rules on what people receiving benefits can do with the money they get given. If I am paying tax, and my government is using some of my tax money to give to people who do not have their own source of income, I accept that that money is given to them for them to spend on basic necessities such as food and rent and such, and to keep them on their feet until they are able to find themselves a job and begin making their own money. I do not agree with this money being given to them only for them to spend it on things such as alcohol or cigarettes, because it does not help their situation, and encourages them to not seek work and fuel their addictions.

Call me insensitive to their situation, but it’s simply not fair on actual taxpayers who are paying for these peoples livelyhoods for the money they are paying to go to pointless substances such as alcohol etc. when it is supposed to just keep them on their feet until they are able to support themselves
