im not 100% on this but ive heard that in midieval days people

believed that when a man was drunk and disorderly or mean that evil

spirits had entered him thru the drink so it could have to do with

that. Alcohol brings out the spirit(The inner beliefs and morality

that guide that particular individual) that is most prominent in us

while reducing our inhibition(wall) that is a defensive mechanism

clouding our true self.
