I'll add that I've occasionally posted things on-line after a few. I kind of thought "What is Happening?" too.
Nothing like "drunk e-mailing"!! I once received a 1:30 AM email from an employee. It was supposed to be ABOUT me (the boss) but instead he sent it TO me. I was able to easily figure out the intended recipient as well.

The best/worst part is that the subject was about their conspiracy to force me out of the company.

As we say: hilarity ensued the following morning.

+1, I love that avatar.

These days I only one or maybe 2 drinks a day, usually in the evening. These days when with friends and/or relatives who drink much more then I simply say that I have a "dicky ticker" and stick to my limit. Never an argument if they think I may have a heart attack

Long before the drunk Facebook post, there was the drunk email. One time, the vindictive spouse of an almost divorced professor sent a drunk email rant to his entire contact list, including me. It was not pretty.

My advice to the OP would be to steer clear of booze except in small infrequent doses.

The next worst part is realizing you don't know where your car is...

But only briefly. I don't want to go back to the days when newbies would hit on me, thinking the photo was of me. (Pretty good looking for 67, don't you think? Ah, I could only wish!)

MY drinking has definitely increased since I retired, but I haven't been drinking to a point of having a hangover the next day. Contrary to what many say, it helps me get to sleep when I have aches and pains in my neck and back, which is daily. I have medications to help me with chronic pain, but I'm not sure which is worse for me, so I alternate. Usually it's just a glass or two of wine, and some days I drink Johnnie Walker Black, or some kind of mixed drink. Everything is in moderation, so I don't see any problems.
