The other day I went on a 'piss-up' for birthday things and whatnot. Anyway, I am usually sound when I drink, I just relax and enjoy the evening. Yet, this time I think I acted like a complete buffoon. I'm not sure what went down, but I somehow think I was acting rather oddly. I know I shouldn't blame it on alcohol, but I am going to, at least to an extent. In which it helped fuel whatever motivation I had to get into the mood I got into in the first place. I don't know how I got in the mood, and from what I remember of it I can only describe it as going barmy. Anyway, I now have to go ask one of the more 'impartial and reserved' members of our group if I acted obscenely. And see if I have to apologise to anyone. I swear, this has been stuck in my craw ever since waking up the night after. I have acted like the drunken idiot and I am not proud. Anyway, that is a side issue. I do have a point for discussion here. Which is: Is it okay to blame alcohol for bad behaviour? Whether it's being obscene, idiotic, arrogant, violent, moody, confrontational, morbid, bombarding or just a general prick. Can this behaviour be justified (to any or a certain extent) as a direct result of alcohol consumption? Or is it because you've simply been a obscenitor, idiot, arroganator, violator, moodster etc etc etc... from the beginning? Thoughts? Thanks. P.S. If you wish, please give us all an anecdote of when you have acted inappropriately, or just done something stupid under the influence of booze. Thanks.
