alcohol is annoying

Drinking is a productivity drain at so many levels.  There is the night of—if it is to be a great night, then I will certainly be sleeping later than I plan to.  There is the morning-afternoon after—headaches and anxiety*.  There is the night after—residual demotivation.

*Alcohol is a depressant.  To counter the effects of a depressant compound, your body’s neurons heighten their stimulatory tendencies.  In alcoholics, this is the basis for the jitters and even life-threatening seizures (delirium tremens) of alcohol withdrawal.  In the rest of us, this can exacerbate any anxiety we would already be susceptible to after a night full of hilarious shenanigans.
