There was an old Fellow of Trinity, A Doctor well versed in Divinity; But he took to free-thinking, And then to deep drinking, And so had to leave the vicinity.
A. C. Hilton

They [the Persians] are accustomed to deliberate on matters of the highest moment when warm with wine; but whatever they in this situation may determine is again proposed to them on the morrow, in their cooler moments, by the person in whose house they had before assembled. If at this time also it meet their approbation, it is executed; otherwise it is rejected. Whatever also they discuss when sober, is always a second time examined after they have been drinking.

Source: The Histories of Herodotus

There is this to be said in favor of drinking, that it takes the drunkard first out of society, then out of the world.
Drinking makes such fools of people, and people are such fools to begin with, that it's compounding a felony.
