I only drink occasionally, and it has mixed results when I game drunk. But sometimes I do better when I am under the influence.
I remember 20 years ago I was playing X-Com 2 Terror From the Deep. I had a single save and foolishly saved the game during a mission at the most terrible moment. For a week, every night I tried to make it through that mission and could never successfully do it. I was most of the way through the game and didn't want to start over. I gave up. A week later when I was drunk I decided to try again.
I breezed through the mission without a problem.
