Okay, real talk about a sensitive subject: Tony Stark is an extremely high functioning alcoholic.
High functioning alcoholics can function like normal people, for the most part, even when smashed. They don’t slur their words or stumble or show any real overt signs of drunkenness until they are WAY past the normal threshold. The tipoff is the smell. You can smell the liquor on them even if they haven’t spilled a drop. Sometimes, I think it comes through their pores.
Alcoholics usually have a higher tolerance for alcohol, built up like an immunity to poison…because that’s basically what it is. Often they will begin their day with alcohol, for a variety of reasons, not least of which is the ever present hangover. Some can’t function normally without it. But high functioning alcoholics will generally seem normal while intoxicated.
If you suddenly remove all alcohol, some of them experience delirium tremens (DTs), which you’ll need to look up if you want to use; they are rough and can be fatal if not experienced under the care of a medical facility.
Now, not all Tonys are alcoholic, I’m just taking about the ones who are. High functioning alcoholics are not silly drunks or cartoonish. They can walk a straight line, they can even operate vehicles (they are still impaired, they just hide it better).
He doesn’t slur or slide his consonants. He doesn’t fall down. Hell, drinking might actually calm normal mood swings for him. He could still be charming. He could be MORE charming while drunk.
And remember, people are alcoholics for REASONS. It’s self medication. Nobody is addicted to alcohol for fun. Nobody gets there on purpose.
