Proverbs 23:29-35 NKJV
29 Who has woe?
Who has sorrow?
Who has contentions?
Who has complaints?
Who has wounds without cause?
Who has redness of eyes?
30 Those who linger long at the wine,
Those who go in search of mixed wine.
31 Do not look on the wine when it is red,
When it sparkles in the cup,
When it swirls around smoothly;
32 At the last it bites like a serpent,
And stings like a viper.
33 Your eyes will see strange things,
And your heart will utter perverse things.
34 Yes, you will be like one who lies down in the midst of the sea,
Or like one who lies at the top of the mast, saying:
35 "They have struck me, but I was not hurt;
They have beaten me, but I did not feel it.
When shall I awake, that I may seek another drink?"
I long to accomplish a great and noble task; but my chief duty is to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble - Helen Keller

Wow! Guess I missed that part in my reading.....the only thing I can recall from Proverbs from many years ago is Proverbs 20:1 which says..."Wine is a mocker...strong drink is raging..whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise." (KJV)
Or better yet--since you posted the NKJV.....here is what it says: "Wine is a mocker, Strong drink is a brawler, And whoever is led astray by it is not wise."
