I never saw any positive effect of alcohol on the people around me. Even those who were funny or exciting when drunk, in time they became depressed, anxious, aggressive or hopelessly addicted.
For me alcohol is a burden; it makes me feel dumb, unfocused and sleepy, and no matter how little I drink, it gives me headaches afterwards. I only drink on rare occasions.
Maybe for some people it opens a new way of perceiving the world, but is only for a short period, and the price is way too heavy. I wouldn't recommended it.

This is an interesting thought. Let's see... What happened at your in-laws, in my opinion, was not related to the ethanol you consumed. It sounds as if their house was haunted to begin with. I think it likely you would have had an experience that night regardless of whether you were drunk or not.

Also, being drunk comes before a hangover so for this idea to be correct, then despite the impairments caused by alcohol on many different bodily systems, sensitivity to paranormal events must be linked to alcohol consumption in general, and not any specific stage of the process from drinking to drunkenness to hangover...

As far as the shadow people that you see, where do you see them? Is this in your house? Have you noticed these things before when you haven't been drinking? Alcohol is ethanol, and certain enzymes in one's liver actually break down the ethanol in a chemical reaction, the byproduct of which is a compound called acetaldehyde...

This is nasty stuff, and highly toxic. It is an atmospheric pollutant and a carcinogen. I have not researched to see if this chemical is what is directly responsible for hangovers, but I suspect it is since it is more toxic than ethanol. So how does this fit in with paranormal experiences? I have no clue but it could play some type of role, either in hypersensitivity or hallucinations, either of which are possible, but only one of which is probable in my opinion.

Or it could just be that you're house is haunted as well, if you see things there explicitly, barring your in-laws' house. I have been working on a theory for a while, which is not yet fully put together as I am missing some big pieces, but a small part of it claims that spirits or ghosts of whatever type of energy are always around us, it is just that we cannot sense them. Even animals cannot usually sense them. They somehow flash into our perception for whatever reason, and we are able to perceive them. Now, I have thought of the possibility of certain chemicals adding or reducing certain chemicals in our brains, which will result in a change of perception which may just allow us to perceive MORE instead of less.

If this is the case with drinking alcohol, then I would suspect that researching the various chemicals at play while drinking, and not just during hangovers, may lead the researcher to a specific chemical. Then researching how that chemical reacts within the body, what systems it operates on, and more importantly what effect it has on the brain, could possibly tell us more about paranormal experiences in general. That is my favorite type of research...that that follows a path off which deductions can be made. Ya know? If A then B.

I am not sure about the alcohol being a factor. This would be the first I have heard of alcohol causing someone to see something paranormal. perhaps the entity had been trying to rouse you to get out of her room while you were passed out so when u finnally woke up it showed its self to you. Have you seen anything that vivid since that night?

id say not. Booze just inhibits the brain and i doubt very much it will suddenly unlock the part that allows us to see or experince the spirit world.

Alcohol take away ,or at least a little, the brakes.In most occasions.
Booze makes me tired en sleepy , but turns some of my friends into ADHD fireballs.
But there is not only alcohol.
There is also '___', i spoke a neighbour who used '___'.
She said:" people came straight out of the wall".
None of them she knew.So it cant be trick from the brain otherwise people from her memory come out the wall.
Anyone familliar with this type 'toxic'

Hmmm......reminds me of a preacher I was forced to listen to when I was a kid. He said he used to be a drunken lout who did vile things throughout his young life, then one night he was walking home from some sort of debauchery he had been involved in and a demon showed up and chased his young butt home to where he found his dear ole mommy sitting in the kitchen and praying for God to show him the errors of his ways. Something like that.

We're disallowed due to T&C to discuss some things here on ATS. So I'll just say, alcohol bad. Some other things good.



I knew and old man or older man that drank hard his whole life. One night comming home from a hard night out, he was walking, he says he saw a fire demon in a tree near the road with a ball and chain. It said something to him about taking him to hell. Whatever the case this guy did stop drinking that night! He was so shook up that he wouldnt come out of the house for awhile and his kin folk that he lived with were convinced that something happened. I talked to him about it for a moment and he was certainly in stress about it.

Yes it can.
One of the greatest reasons that the United States and Western governments actually PAY eastern countries to also outlaw many drugs , is that many of these NATURAL SUBSTANCES, open pathways of vision , astral travel, and communication with God and the Universe

A shot of whiskey will loosen you up and relax you a bit which will in turn make you more open. However, if you have more than just one or two, then everything becomes muddled and unreliable.

The only reason alcohol has an effect is because the slight buzz will relax you.
And being relaxed helps with spirit contact.

I've found that having a lot of passionate sex can help bring about paranormal activity. It's as if they are attracted to the energy. Try it while focusing your intent on something and see what happens.
