    Same here. I don't drink anymore, but when I used to drink I was an a$$hole all the time until I started drinking... then I mellowed out a lot.

    I guess now that I don't drink anymore explains why I'm an a$$hole all the time.

    in this case, the word depressant refers to alcohol's effect on the brain's neural activity, resulting in hampered speech ability, driving skills, the ability to walk straight, etc..

    It's not meant to imply that drinking makes you morose.. as by your example, you become happier..

    Here's a question.. do you think alcohol really "changes" your personality, or does it allow the real personality to show itself?

    I find it quite stupid I never thought of that blatant fact, doh...

    no I'd say it lets me show my real personality. I can be happy and silly with close friends, just more so when drunk. It does change my personality a bit. I'm a silly person overall, but not a happy go lucky, love everyone type, I really just don't like everyone until I'm drunk.
