In brief: For good reason?
When people become progressively more intoxicated with alcohol they are at increased risk of saying and doing things they will later regret.
The reason for this is that alcohol, a depressant, lowers the brain's ability to inhibit behavior. Consequently, the next day, sobering partyers may feel embarrassed or guilty about their behavior the night before. "what happened?" they might ask themselves.
