We drank for joy and became miserable.
We drank for sociability and became argumentative.
We drank for sophistication and became obnoxious.
We drank for friendship and made enemies.
We drank for sleep and awakened exhausted.
We drank for strength and felt weak.
We drank to feel exhilaration and ended up depressed.
We drank for "medicinal purposes" and acquired health problems.
We drank to get calmed down and ended up with the shakes.
We drank for confidence and became afraid.
We drank to make conversation flow more easily. and the words came out slurred and incoherent
We drank to diminish our problems and saw them multiply.
We drank to feel heavenly and ended up feeling like hell.
We drank to cope with life and invited death.
