Hi Bonnie and Andreas,
Does this not imply that the entity is always bad? Or are some entities good? For some people, myself included (though I'm teetotal now!), alcohol brings out really positive qualities like affection, love and openess. The alcohol relaxed me and enabled me to be things I didn't feel able to be whilst sober. Now that I hardly ever drink, this is forcing me to fight the fear of being vulnerable and allow these qualities to come forth!
