How could a person psychologically feel when he's high/drunk?

Don't understand?: How could a person feel, or how DO they feel? And high and drunk aren't the same thing. When people are intoxicated on alcohol or sedatives (like xanax, (alprazolam) barbiturates etc.) they are disinhiibted, so it depends on what is underneath.
