Why do drunk people on t.v. make me want to drink?

Usually when I watch television and I see that there are drunk people in a scene, it makes me want to drink. The problem is that it is either too early, I don't have any drinks, or I just can't seem to drink anymore after one or two drinks. Usually after a couple of drinks I have had enough. Which is good rather than getting drunk. It just seems so fun on television when they are having fun and letting loose. Although I know it is fake and the actors are just acting and not really drunk. I just don't understand when I watch television that it makes me want to have a few drinks. I think one of the reasons that I stop drinking after a couple of drinks, is that there is usually no one to drink with me. Do you feel the same?

I usually feel the same usually because it looks like they are having lots of fun. And if you drink enough you will feel like you are having that much fun. It can feel lonely and weird to drink alone but I think it is okay to do once in a while and don't make a habit of it. If you want to keep in a drinking mood don't just sit and watch tv while you drink try playing music it usually makes me drink more and even that can be fun alone.

Monkey see, monkey do. T.V. is a very powerful weapon that manipulates our lives.
