It’s only at the extreme that you can see and understand what your limits are.
How do you react when you’re angry, hopeless, drunk?
How much control do you have in those situations? That’s when the worst part of you shows up and it’s up to you if you want to listen to it or not. It’s up to you to decide which road to take.
It’s quite normal to fail, I would be surprised of the opposite, but at the same time, it’s in these moments that we learn about ourselves.
Some people might argue “In vino veritas”, meaning that once drunk you’ll be more of “yourself”.
To me being drunk resemble any of the other conditions like being angry.
It’s not about being a control freak, it’s about understanding what moves us in the worst way.
