If consuming alcohol makes me an alcoholic, will consuming distilled spirits make me....spiritual?

Consuming alcohol doesn't make you an alcoholic, consuming it in excess makes you one. Drinking and getting drunk are two separate things. I drink on a regular basis. But I get drunk only on special occasions.

If consuming alcohol makes you alcoholic, them consuming spirit makes you spiritic.

No.

Spirited, perhaps. Or comatose. Or somewhere in between.

Consuming spirits in excess makes you into a spirit.

And if you consume distilled spirits in excess, you will still be a spirit.

If taking a quiz makes you quizzical, what does taking a test make you?


P.S. Don't answer that!

Everyone talks about my drinking. No one talks of my thirst.

10 out of 10 scientists agree.. Alcohol is a solution


Actually it is a solvent, but that ruins the joke.
