Havamal Snippets 14: Drink for Enjoyment

It's Wednesday (Woden/Odin's Day) which means that it's time for another verse from the Havamal 'Sayings of the High One - Odin'. The poem full of wisdom, both everyday and ethereal. (The poem can be found in full HERE):
14. Drunk I was,
I was over-drunk,
at that cunning Fjalar’s.
It’s the best drunkenness,
when every one after it
regains his reason. 
All things that are good are good in themselves and beget goodness. If you drink, it should be enjoyable then and enjoyable the following day. Avoid drinking for the wrong reasons (false courage, forget your troubles etc), instead drink for good reasons.
