Why does alcohol make you fearless?

I'd had my dinner... it was delicious... Swedish chicken, roasted, with potatoes and vegetables. "Fancy some wine?" I asked. Soon, I had was holding one of those fabulous "half a bottle" glasses... the wine was good - something French. We'd been drinking wine the last couple of evenings... really relaxing.

Soon, the glass was empty... "fancy another?" I asked. He obliged, and poured another half bottle into my glass. As I drank it, I could feel a change coming over me...

Nothing exciting was on television, so I decided to go online for a bit. A man I really fancy came online... I flirted outrageously with him! Whereas I usually pondered on what I would say to him, tonight I just said what was on my mind. Who knows if I scared him away... time will tell on that one, I guess.

The hour grew later... another name appeared online. "Hi" I said, having nearly finished the second glass. "Don't mind me, I'm drunk" I was drunk... but not enough to not know what I was doing. We chatted, he was nice, so nice that I just had to say it. Say what was on my mind... had been for days... weeks... months...

I know he thinks it was the alcohol talking... and perhaps it was... but now I am sober again, and I remember what I said - and I remember what he said too. I don't regret it... I'm glad it's out in the open. Thank you for listening, my friend... and thank you for BEING my friend.

Love, hugs and kisses from ♥♥HH♥♥

Maybe this is where I'm going wrong - I'm scared to death of drinking and losing the self control that I rely on so much - I'm glad it worked for you though

Alcohol allows us to be what society and decorum and expectation often keeps us from becoming. I happen to believe that a few drinks gives us the courage, or perhaps removes the fear, and allows us to express ourselves with naked honesty. Not that I am recommending perpetual drunkeness lol ... only to suggest that the occassional alcoholic haze might enhance an otherwise pedestrian existence. I'd be interested to know your thoughts.

indul_gent - I don't usually drink much, but having said that, I've never been quite so tipsy before on just one bottle of wine! I grew up in a house where alcohol flowed more freely than I liked. I suffered for it, and never wanted to be like that. However, I am not teetotal... but like to be in control of my faculties!

Thanks for visiting my blog.

I lean towards chris' point of view... Tho sometimes letting go can be good as well (with or without alcohol for that matter).

Fear of losing control does not stop me drinking. But I do sometimes regret my lack of restraint.

Right now I need a friend who owns a vineyard... I've heard that drinking can drown sorrows... is this true?

Everyone knows that drinking kills brain cells.

What they don't tell you is that it just kills the weak ones, this lets the strong ones have more room to work
