When he gets drunk, he gets depressed
We all become a little unrealistic when intoxicated. But in what direction a person becomes unrealistic is very telling about him. A happy, positive person has grand illusions about how his life will go when he gets drunk, cheerfully talking to his friends about companies they should start and adventures they should go on! A negative person has sad illusions about how bad his life will turn out, suddenly rambling on about how nothing will ever work out.
