why is it that you can only have fun by drinking?

this is the question that no one who drinks knows how to answer.
when you are drunk, is that the real you? or is it "drunk you"?

If its the real you than why are you such an ass
if its not the real you, but instead "drunk you" than why cant you have fun just by being yourself?

People always tell me when I decline drinking "you gotta get that head change man. its all about the head change" or "dude just loosen up and have a drink"

But nobody ever gives me a reason as to why you are supposed to drink other than the vague "to have fun" excuse.

I have been to a few parties, and have just felt disgusted by the state at which people leave themselves in the pursuit of this "fun". I closely watched everyones actions and came to the conclusion that its all for attention. They do the dumbest things just to garner attention.

so, if someone could answer this question for me that would be grand...
Why do you drink? Why are you supposed to get Drunk? If its not the real you when you are drunk than why cant you just have fun by being yourself?

The reason drinking is fun is because people who do don't need to rationalize not drinking like you apparently.

I'm not sure how to explain it, but I'll tell you how I feel.
When I drink, I'm still in control of what I do, but I just seem to care less about worries and consequences.
I guess that's where the fun part is; where it's easier for me to act with less care.
I might regret it, but so far, I haven't done anything harmful, so I feel fine.

also, how does it enrich the experience at all? it just makes everything fuzzy and distorted in a sense. they say that ignorance is bliss, but knowing exactly what you're doing and being able to have those moments in your memory is much more rewarding.
also, how does being "wasted" or hungover feel good?

my point exactly. Seems there is no point to drinking.

I seldom have fun, drunk or sober. The tingling, relaxing sensation after a big, strong drink feels really good. After the third drink none of my many problems seem that bad... And that alone would make me a raging alcoholic if I didn't kept a pretty short rein on my drinking.
Playing a game or watching a movie while drinking and nobody bothers me is basically the best thing I know.

my uncle completely broke his family apart with alcoholism. He always thought he had "tight reins on his drinking" as well.

I am here to tell you that no matter how in control of your primal instincts you THINK you are (in your case intake of something that "makes you feel good") you really cant control it? just like being scared and telling yourself to not be, no matter how hard you try, you will continue until there is reason to stop.

and for drinking the only reason to stop is for tragedy of either self harm, or harming of others to occur.

but it was "fun" wasnt it? No? cant remember? probably all the booze...
