In brief: Abnormal or Normal?

Many individuals may at sometime in their lives experience being drunk on alcohol.
This is normal. Being drunk can quickly become abnormal due to its effects on the central nervous system. When drunk you llose motor control, coordination and reaction time resulting in accidents and injuries. You lose your ability to reason and make bad decisions such as driving. It is a condition best avoided.

In brief: Drunk

Being drunk with alcohol is clearly a sign of poor judgement, leading to activities that one would not ordinarily do, such as operate a car, machinery, sign contracts, leading to bad results.
