Comparison of Views on “alcohol” and “lust” in the Bible?

Question by argh.pirate: Comparison of views on “alcohol” and “lust” in the bible?
I’ve been looking into a lot of popular misconceptions about what the bible says about certain topics. I’ve always believed that alcohol consumption is fine as long as you don’t get drunk because then your body is in control which can lead to more obvious sins. Then I was reading about lust:
Matthew 5:28 – “You have heard that it was said, ‘Do not commit adultery.’ But I tell you that anyone who has looked at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”
The definition for lust is: “an intense longing : craving”
I think the key words are intense and craving which are both extremes, just like being drunk. My point is aren’t all arguments against lustful actions wrong if the feelings aren’t too much to handle? If you’re in control it doesn’t qualify as lust.
I’m not talking about lusting for alcohol. Also when I said it’s not lust if it’s controlled I didn’t mean going as far as possible sexually without intercourse, I meant what most people consider lust really isn’t because it’s not an uncontrollable urge. My logic is that neither is a sin if you control it and don’t let it control you.
