Alcohol makes me sad when there's none in my apartment.  That's why god gave us weed.

I have a head splitting hangover, so alcohol is making me very sad right now.

Bullshiat.  Alcohol gives me a sad when I run out

Alcohol makes me sad because it was killing my husband (he's on the wagon) and it just killed an old friend of mine at the age of 47.

Actually alcohol does make me sad - weepy drunk, so I don't drink. Someone has to be designated driver.

Looks like the headline was changed as it reads fine now. Subby was probably trying to make a pun on the word proof (as in: This booze is 80 proof).

Exactly. Alcohol doesn't create a mood, it simply enhances the mood or mindset of the imbiber. If you're happy when you start drinking, you'll likely stay happy throughout and same for the other moods. If you're a violent natured person you're likely to start fights when drinking. If you're depressed you get more depressed.

It's not the alcohol, it's the hangover. Especially when THE NEIGHBORS KIDS ARE farkING SCREAMING OUTSIDE MY WINDOW! They're in a one bedroom apartment, it's not like they supposed to have kids. I should advertise them on Craigslist as being frequently unattended.

I was always a happy drunk.

Didn't George Carlin once have a bit that said something like:

"Alcohol just brings out a persons personality. It amplifies it.
Well, yeah. What if you're an asshole?"

I'm sad right now because of alcohol. I drank it all last night. :'(

For those with hangovers, drink plenty of water while imbibing. I drink a glass of water for every alcoholic drink I have and haven't had a hangover in years. You're welcome!

You can also guzzle water and take 2 aspirin before going to bed.  Then you also wake up earlier to go pee.  More time for drinking!  Hooray!

Subby is singular.

I've heard that tactic does terrible things to your kidneys though (the relying on aspirin or tylenol to muffle the alcohol's damage).  I'm typically just throwing in some water throughout the evening, just ask for the coors light in a glass and no one knows the difference.

Alcohol makes you smarter according to the Buffalo Theory by Cliff Clavin:

"Well, you see, Norm, it's like this. A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it's the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members.

In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine.

And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers."

Nothing like a depressant to chase the blues away.

Alcohol reduced inhibitions and brings out one's inner tendencies easier.

I am a huggy drunk who enjoys wandering away because something else strikes my fancy.

Your mind has a fence. It's called the front brain. Booze breaks the fence open and you pour out. The Carlin concept is right. It's the same as a bad acid trip (if the acid's ok to begin with). Keep a clean conscience and the night is yours.

Zombie DJ: Didn't George Carlin once have a bit that said something like:

Then why am I so miserable when I don't drink, but act like a happy drunk?

/I only drink maybe a couple beers on the weekend and one when I get home from work.  I haven't been drunk in months, so it can't be alcoholism.

No, they proved you will use anything to defend your drinking habit.

Since I am finally sobering up (somewhat) and getting healthy it does make me sad. I miss the hell out of binge drinking but I do feel better. I still have a couple beers a night but that's down from at least a couple six packs a night. I needed to quit smoking cigs and I couldn't do that while getting wasted drunk all of the time. And getting withdrawal symptoms from alcohol scared me enough to make the reduction a permanent thing.

Only in the physiological sense, rather than the psychological sense.

I've never had a hangover ever.

There was the one morning where you could set a clock by how regularly I'd go into spastic dry heaves (15 minutes) but I felt just fine.

Maybe I'm just lucky?

Well, not directly.

Uhmmm... Yeah, that's it. I'm not just make a stupid mistake. It was a pun. Yes, no mistake about it.
