In my opinion, benzodiazepines used as prescribed bear little resemblance to alcohol intoxication. There is no "buzz" or inebriation when used properly, also I think there is less impairment of judgement and other mental faculties. People unacustomed to them or who take large doses may experience some inebriation but generally fall asleep. They also are much less likely to intensify aggressiveness like alcohol can. I also think they are different from other sedatives like barbiturates, meprobamate, methaqualone etc..
