Most people associate alcohol with fun, being sociable and celebrations. Many also use it to help them feel better or more confident, or when in tense or unhappy situations.
Social drinking can be very pleasurable, as alcohol initially acts as a 'pick-me-up' and a mood enhancer, though it is ultimately a depressant; so a heavy night drinking is likely to leave you feeling worse rather than better.
The more you drink, and the more often you drink, the more of it you need to feel the same effects. Habitual over-consumption of alcohol can have a wide range of consequences - social, psychological and physical, and people often aren't aware how much they are drinking or it's impact on those around them.
