The essence of alcohol is not that it gives joy, but that it is a chain that binds a person who has no love in order to turn his thirst for power over reality into an illusion. In fact, an alcoholic is a prisoner in a prison of Vice. Why was he punished? Because there is no love in it. For the fact that he loves himself alone and nothing more.
Once a man is freed from the bondage of Vice, all roads are open to him. Vices steal time and energy, hindering the pursuit of perfection and turning dreams into reality. In fact, vices are what hinder the magic of love.
Over-love is too much attention. A person gets used to attention and begins to feel the eternal insufficiency of this attention, try to attract attention, experience pain, sublimate it into anxiety and aggression.
