Getting drunk gets you that neat tipsy feeling and might do something temporarily about emotional turmoil or hangups. Then if you don't pass out it tends to make things a bit worse, where you feel like crap and the morning is that much more difficult to face, and you're sluggish the next day and frankly, it's not much fun anymore.
I know, I didn't use "I" language in that paragraph. I meant "I."
I find that saying a Rosary has a calming effect as well, and no negative after-effect.
Just something I notice.
