    Train drunk, if you're going to fight drunk.

    You fight how you train... if you're going to get into fights whilst drunk, you need to train whilst drunk.

    Normalisation, doncherknow...

    + rep for standing by your convictions and helping out a girl in trouble.
    Also you took on somebody in an uncontrolled environment, your goal was to stop this prick from hitting a girl and you achieved that.

    Good job, variance. If only the woman who was about to be struck had rushed to your aid and cuddled your injured brow to her heaving bosom you likely would have felt better about your initiative.

    To the O.P, Re-read this post whenever you're really wound up about it.

    Fighting is not who scored the most points. Its why you are fighting, and when you fight. This was not a game, you did the right thing. You won.
    Then re-read what you, yourself wrote, for the lesson here :-

    Having never been in a real fight whilst under the influence, I must say this.

    That whole idea in TMA about training muscle memory is spot on in these situations. If your body can remember what to do, it can make up (a little bit) for your lack of mind. Even though it's not ideal, it will give you a bit of an edge while drunk.

    Course, your actions here showed that you were chivalrous, etc etc, but you got lucky. Things could have turned out much worse, and I'm glad you're doing the right thing and using this to rejuvinate your training regimen.
