Definition: To drink excessively so as to get drunk or intoxicated
Etymology: From Middle English 'bouse' - drink a lot(c.1300), from Middle Dutch 'busen' - to drink heavily. The noun is first recorded in 1859, reinforced by name of Philadelphia distiller E.G. Booze. Boozy was one of Benjamin Franklin's 225 synonyms for "drunk" which was published in 1722
John always gets himself boozed up whenever he is depressed or angry so as to temporary forget about the matter.
