In brief: Alcohol is tricky
Alcoholic drink is a common social lubricant.
It decreases inhibitions and leads to more garrulous conversations. It also impairs judgement and increases impulsivity which may lead to unanticipated consequences. Certain personality types are susceptible to loss of control, leading to abuse and addiction.
