    Never drink when you're sad, or to shut annoying thoughts off.

    It will make things only worse, unless you're extremely creative or called Ernest Hemingway.

    I was just thinking about this tonight when the temptation arose to drink. I'm not really sure why I wanted to. But I realized that, whatever reasons I had for doing it tonight, the idea of drinking for those reasons depressed me even more than I might have been before.

    I do like that alcohol loosens me up in social situations. I don't think I've ever intentionally drunk for that reason--I just see it as a bonus, if I happen to be drinking.

    like a "ha! i drank! what now!" kinda thing.

    I'd rather think that alcohol abuse reduce the potency of your Ti. It's not your Ne that expands, it's rather your Ti that is shrinking, thus giving you the illusion of becoming dom-Ne instead of dom-Ti.

    But it's false.

    That could explain why drunken INTPs often remain unaware how loud and aggressive they are, because unlike a drunken ENTP, they would still lack some Fe.

    For me:

    One drink = happy and everyone is funny.

    3 drinks = I generally feel excrutiatingly super-sad.

    Alcohol for me has never been something to quiet thoughts; it amplifies my emotions x 100.

    To get thoughts "out of my head" I write. If I am having trouble sleeping, I write about what's on my mind and that's a big help to fall back asleep.

    I made that mistake once after a family member passed away. I ended up receiving a minor alcohol consumption ticket. I never did that again.

    Never tried this, and not planning on it.
    Alcohol emphasizes whatever I'm feeling, so even normally I'll make sure not to drink while really stressed/sad (= catastrophe, as I once noticed).

    There are only two times that I can think of when I used alcohol just for the purpose of blocking out stress or thoughts, but in my opinion benzodiazepines are a lot better for this and I would have probably used them if I could have found any xanax at the time.

    1. When I was going through really bad opioid withdrawals, and just needed something to blunt the withdrawals.
    2. When a friend passed away.

    If I have a lot of thoughts running through my mind I either have a beer, or write a story or poem. But I am not an alcoholic though.
