> it loosens you up

yes I definitely like a drink when my anxiety is high or if I've had a really bad day (hence I drink every day).

However what I was enquiring about isn't it's sedating/calming/relaxing properties. For example on Sunday I was feeling my usual strong anhedonia about 2pm. So I had a whisky and within like 20 mins my mood and anhedonia had both lifted massively. I had another whisky after ~ 2 hours and again the same effect. However there are many occasions when it doesn't have this effect at all. It drives me crazy (no pun intended). I can never seem to find a baseline with any of the meds (OTC/booze or otherwise) I take.

I love the smell of Abilify in the morning. The smell, you know that chemical smell. Smells like victory. Some day this war's gonna end...
