The life of an alcoholic is rewarded in spades with insights into life that would never occur without a boost from a trainload of ethyl alcohol coursing through the bloodstream. This thought-provoking concoction slams the brain into overdrive as new neural connections take place at top speed, opening up avenues of thought, that at times, approach genius. This enlightenment stage has only a short window of existence in which to grasp the concepts that are emanating from the “grayt matter” stuffed into the cranium.
