A brief article about the effects of alcohol on people and their ability to tell the truth under the influence.
“A drunk man always speaks the truth” is what my dear old Grandma used to tell me. I’ve heard this or similar phrases banded about by many people over the years and wondered if there was any real, wait for it, “truth” in the statement. Oh and I write this with a sober mind and a better, clearer judgement!

Okay so alcohol has detrimental effects on many people. It can damage your health if taken in excess and it can also drive a sober person crazy who hangs out with that drunken person.
But have you ever wondered why a drunk person starts to blurt out certain “secrets”, whether exaggerated or not? Is there any truth behind those old phrases?
Just go out and hang in a bar. Watch people carefully as the night drags on and observe those people that when first entered were somewhat reserved, then as the night progresses and their intake of alcohol increases, they become far more relaxed and in a way, “confident”.
Suddenly those people start to talk much more openly. Their inhibitions are down and their body language is, apart from the totally out his or her face state type of person, open.
Strike up a conversation if you dare. Ask them some pointing questions.
I had a friend who tried this. He went out and approached a girl who he worked with a the beginning of the night. Now this girl, attractive and intelligent and apparently with a boyfriend, was very closed off at work. Guys looked at her but wouldn’t dare approach her as they knew she would never entertain them. Plus perhaps the fact she had a boyfriend with a rough reputation and not afraid to show that fact.
At first she just turned her back on him as if he just wasn’t there. He politely excused himself and waited. Then later during the night he watched her with her friends. She had already consumed two glasses of wine. She appeared to be more open. Guys would walk by and she would look up and f eye contact was made she wouldn’t just dismiss them, but allow a coy smile.
Then as the night grew older and she had at least another glass of wine she was up and dancing. At first the girl wasn’t too interested in guys but what he noticed was she would start to chat more to them.
