Do you think people mean what they say when they are drunk???

Alcohol reduces inhibitions. It won't make you say something you don't really believe. It WILL allow you to speak your mind in a way that you normally wouldn't.

Absolutely! The only thing they may not have meant is to say it!

I mean what I say but it's not what I would normally say. I don't normally open up to people and tell them how I feel unless I am drinking...

Yep, drinking lets your guard down and you will do and say things you want but never had the guts to do.

Hey it is normal to think that you wouldn't normally say things like you do drunk than sober. In all honesty when you are intoxicated you seem to always let things slip out that you wouldn't normally let slip out. Sometimes this is good.. Other times it could be not so good.

I believe that when one is drunk, you start thinking about stuff in your life. This causes your soul to be spilled out. In my own experience, YES I believe it to be true.

Totally!! Alcohol releases all your inhibitions, including the ones that should be kept underwraps... in fact I experienced this last night!

That depends on who they are. Some people feel they have drank liquid courage and spill the beans on their inner secrets other people just talk crap!

When I'm drunk I think of all these different and strange things to say. I usually don't say them, so I think that people have control on what they say when they are drunk.

on my part yes. Because sometimes, guys or girls get courage whrn they are intoxicated by alcohol

Yes, 99% of the time
A drunk mind speaks a sober heart.
And they don't call alcohol "truth serum" and "liquid courage" for nothing.
Before we were together, my boyfriend would only tell me how he felt after a couple beers, and same with me.

Actually, I think it's true. There have been times when I was drunk that I said things that I wanted to say when I was sober but didn't b/c I was afraid of the reprecussions. I've always been told that alcohol shows your true colors.

in my case...... it's liquid courage. i mean what i say, but i would not NORMALLY say some of the stuff i say. and my emotions are charged. so it's a little more dramatic, but it's rooted in truth.

To be honest, I think that some people actually use alcohol to help them say those things they always wanted to say because it's easier to pass the 'blame' onto the alcohol than to take responsibility for it...I've had many times where what I said drunk was pretty well what I felt sober...:D

YES...they mean it. Personally...drinking makes me say things that are my private thoughts!! lol but for some reason alcohol gives me the bright idea to blurt out everything i would be to scared to say sober

LOL. Well personally I believe that however you act when you are drunk is your real personality. As for some of the things people say yeah I usually what they say is true. Being drunk basically makes you forget that you aren't supposed to say certain things to certain people.

Yes. Being drunk just gives you the guts to say it. lol. Even though you wouldn't say it while your sober you were thinking it. lol

NO, they may say things, but they have no idea what they are talking about. They don't even know where they are most of the time and you expect them to saying someing meaningful in this of mind??? It doesn't happen!!!!

God, I hope not. My dad said I was an accident!! Wahh..

I think alcohol effects everyone DIFFERENTLY. It also depends a lot on how much the person has drunk. So when dealing with drunk people... it's safer to just not take what they say seriously, because whether or not they mean it, they are not in their 100% right mind.
