Why Do People Talk So Much When Drunk?
Alcohol strongly affects the inhibitory processes relating to social behavior. In one study, persons who consumed a moderate amount of alcohol showed primary inhibitory impairment surrounding social actions, or those resulting in attention, but not in other forms of inhibition. This hypothesis suggests that most inhibitory affects surround social activities, especially those involving having fun with others (more drinking), dancing or sex, talking to family and loved ones (even exes), and using more substances to continue to feel good.
Inhibitions are often less involved when it comes to singular activities. Therefore, people who are drinking on their own and without a phone are not as likely to exhibit reckless behavior or to be involved in activities that are traditionally associated with drinking (reckless driving, dancing, yelling, fighting, etc.) because inhibition is not lowered in non-social respects.
