Drinking has a huge effect on me, and has an even bigger effect on my creative output. Alone it give me such a powerful, yet slurred, explosion of ideas. The paper becomes more a of a friend, a friend that's willing to listen to some emotional outpouring, no matter how disturbed, morose, or upsetting. (though it does seem to respond better to more 'happy' ideas) When in other's company (social situations) drink makes me the dolt, a slug that leaves a slimy mess on others communications. I've no paper to expel my mind's lubricated emotions onto; instead filling the air around me with a verbal vomit of vulgarity and offense. Needless to say, I'm not exactly the life of a party. Any others find some connection to this? Thanks.
