In brief: Not very well.
Many aspergers sufferers abuse alcohol, because initially it can relieve the anxiety of social situations and make them feel as though they can fit in.
Ultimately, though, reliance on alcohol can lead such people down the same path that all alcoholics travel - self-destruction and worsening of the very problems that they hope to alleviate by drinking.
