    My thinking is more along the line that maybe alcohol frees up their minds from the everyday realities, allowing them to range more in their thought processes. But, that's just an idea.

    It sounds like you're saying there are only two kinds of people, those who drink all the time and those who would drink all the time if they could.

    Ha! Maybe I am saying that...

    .....but what I was thinking was that said freedom enables an already present tendency to thrive. Not suggesting that everyone would drink all the time if possible, but certain people would....maybe writing as a profession drives one to drink? Or maybe those who are predisposed to drinking heavily, lean towards a vocation that will not hinder their vices?
