Hello,
It seems that in different cultures people see different creatures when they are drunk to a certain extent. Eg.,in Russian we say that someone is drinking until he sees green devils. As I have discovered,in Serbian those who drank a lot see white mice (I have even found a song in which a drunkard is speaking to a white mouse of this sort).
What images related to alcoholic delirium are typical of your languages and cultures?
