Does Alcohol Stimulate Creativity ?

This may seem a ridiculous point to many thinking what is creative about a loud obnoxious drunk. I would have to agree. At first glance it would seem to be completely insane to think that creativity could spawn from alcohol. But then you have to look at all the artists who were hardcore alkies and created genius work. Hemingway and Bukowski come to mind immediately. I think what happens is alcohol is used as medicine to treat other maladies like schizophrenia , depression or social anxiety and the end result is a born writer who feels free or confidant enough to write. It’s really a shame how the gift leaves many of these creators when they get sober.
