I used to be heavy drinker but not any more, its very bad for your health.
If you want an temporary uplift or help in sleeping, some alleviation with pain, I'd suggest some edible marijuana.
You'll temporarily be happy, you wont be a mouthy out of control asshole to others, you wont wake up the next morning and feel like shit with a hangover.
This is Doctor Finkelstein's advise.
Not to say I dont drink a cool beer on a hot day.
