Someone once said that, “There is no difference between a mad man and a drunkard.” If a man gets drunk, he can behave exactly like a mad person.
Drunkards lose their insanity, thereby making them to act like an insane being. When you are drunk, there is nothing you can’t do. Because at that time you don’t know what you are doing.
We’ve heard of drunkards who beat up their spouse whenever they get back home. In terms of hangover, alcohol will give you the best.
Lot got drunk and he didn’t know when he had sex with his children (Gen 19:33). Alcohol produces insensitivity. Many drink it to a stupor and talk gibberish. God gave you brain, don’t impair its ability. Avoid alcoholic drinks in order to stay sensitive.

Drunkards often vomit and fall down incessantly while walking. They often say unthinkable things that demean them. Stop drinking alcohol as a Christian.
