Steady Your Nerves

"I prefer to think that God is not dead, just drunk."
- John Marcellus Houston

I finally understand the irony behind the idea of taking a drink to "steady your nerves." The meaning of that phrase is that the person is so shaken, so disturbed, that they have to take a drink to bring themselves back to reality. Of course, drinking causes you to be more unstable. Hence, the impossibility of needing a drink to steady your nerves.

I think it goes without saying that the best thing to steady your nerves is water. Furthermore, don't turn to coffee or other caffeinated beverages as a means to settle yourself: they'll only put you more on edge.
