Expectation – Intoxication

Honestly, the most common reason for people in Sweden (and similar societies around the world) to choose alcohol is be able to make out, have fun with friends and relax. Is alcohol a magical potion that can make all that happen? Well, there is actually no medical proof that alcohol alone can create all the emotions and behaviours that people feel when they are drunk. It is actually the expectations of feeling exhilarated, limitless, sad, relaxed or more social that will decide if the feeling of intoxication occurs.

That means that feeling high is first and foremost a social construction and dependent on the circumstances.
