Edgar Allen Poe died at a young age, perhaps from the effects of alcohol. While some of his stories may have been imagined while under its influence I doubt that drinking is a recommended method of stimulating creativity in a writer. Ernest Hemingway also liked to drink didn't he? And it's thought he committed suicide (some say it was an accident) as well. Alcohol does act as a depressant though so maybe the bottle helped in his demise too. I doubt we'll ever really know for sure. I've never had a hangover but I've heard they aren't pleasant things to have. Moot for me now though. Alcohol would really mess with my blood sugar (type 1 diabetes) so I haven't had a drop since Jan 1 1999 though I never was much of a drinker to start with.
