Here’s an interesting topic. Every month, we come across numerous people who are curious about how to feel drunk without drinking.

There are a few different ways to understand this, but we’re going with the idea that there are some people who feel more comfortable socially or use alcohol to cope with certain issues in their life, but recognize that drinking isn’t the healthiest way to deal with things.

By finding other ways to deal with anxiety, you can feel more comfortable in public places and when you’re around people without the need to drink.

If you’re using alcohol to deal with some sort of past trauma, or on-going problems, and you’ve found that getting drunk gives you a temporary release from those feelings, it’s possible to find a healthier way to deal with these issues without drinking.
