I’m not sure if it’s a good thing, but I can certainly remember a time or twenty when I was at a bar or a party, and got so deep in discussion with a friend that tears began to flow. The next time I’d see that friend, we’d embrace tightly, our friendship strengthened by that intoxicated night when we spilled our guts to one another.
After a few glasses of wine or cups of beer, my emotions tend to heighten and my inhibitions diminsh. So the words just pour out. I’ve seen the opposite happen too, when close friends drink and become belligerent, and suddenly aren’t friends anymore.
So we want to know: Has drinking ever brought you closer to a friend, or torn you apart?
