why do people drink to get tipsy or drunk?
this is what i believe and i hope i can explain it decently..
i believe a lot of people drink to get tipsy or drunk because for one reason they lack confidence. they need the alcohol because they cannot talk to people in a social gathering setting without it. they may think they are too boring and need the alcohol to make them funnier or that they get too nervous and the alcohol gives them confidence. another reason i believe is that people are unhappy with their lives whether it is because of their jobs, relationships, unfulfilled dreams, whatever it may be but some aspect in their lives that they are unhappy with so they take to alcohol to fix things or escape for a while. i don’t understand why people get drunk when i’ve noticed with a lot of people it makes them become something or someone they are usually not when they are sober. some people for the worst too (meaner, more aggressive). so are they that unhappy with who they are when they are sober that they need alcohol to become someone else? i also understand that although not good, people use it to deal with depression and pain from either past or present issues.
please help me understand, because i can’t come up with any normal reasons besides the people having issues of low self-esteem. i don’t really see how people say oh to let loose and relax because can you not do that sober? and it’s making me not want to go out with friends and socialize because i think it’s sad that they need to drink. i just find it so unattractive. and i really think alcohol is a bad thing.
