Oh, my: Alcohol can certainly lead you into places you later wish you hadn't gone, and can befuddle them further once you're there. Beyond a pleasantly relaxing dose, alcohol can anesthetize your higher cortex -- making your responses to situations much less creative. Overuse of alcohol (or any other substance or behavior) leads to suffering in both you and your family.
