I have only read the 1st Eragon book. The kind of books I read are mostly philosophy with some religion. I do enjoy fantasy and science fiction to some extent, but I'm not that into them. Mostly though, what I read is stuff that I'm being forced to read because I don't have much time to read other stuff.
I really hated the Eragon movie. The book is so much better than that.
I know all about hangovers (sorta). I didn't drink that much, and I didn't have one at all. I almost never get them unless I'm dehydrated and really overdo it.
If that is true that you are more your "true self", then my true self laughs a lot and is really relaxed. I don't think drinking really brings out your "true self" any more than being sober does. What drinking does do is exacerbate your current mood and dim your self-awareness.
Good morning. I actually don't mind the taste of most alcohol. Of course, if I was drinking purely for taste, I'd drink apple juice or something. The goal is reduced self awareness and a loss of inhibitions. I don't feel like I lose control of myself. I can decide what I'm doing; I just don't put as much thought into my decisions. This does occasionally result in a bad decision (such as drinking too much), but in the scheme of things, it is not a big deal.
