This would be a very bad habit for LS or any type of studying/academics or work.
If you need booze to get motivated to try to be functional and/or productive...they have group meetings for people with such a problem. Plus, if you need to be buzzed to get yourself to study and do the reading, maybe you don't like doing that sort of stuff and going to LS and trying to become a lawyer is not a good thing to pursue unless you want to be miserable for many years to come. Save the partying to celebrate after you have accomplished something worthwhile that is worthy of celebration. Just a thought, carry on.
Here is a funny and sad case from Judge Joe Brown with a real winner, a guy on crack or messed on something in court arguing his case. It didn't work for him, especially admitting he was a drug dealer to the judge! It's a fun 'how not to do it' watch.
