Here's to beer, without which we'd never have the audacity to Google an error message at 3am

Then the chances are that you're either too tense, or too worried about making a mistake.

A small amount of alcohol will decrease each of these, and will increase the ability of most players by allowing them to relax or to ignore the potential for failure.

One easy way to improve your game is to learn to cue in a straight line. Get hold of a square bottle, Jack Daniels or Jim Beam work fine. And then attempt to cue down the neck of the bottle. If the cue keeps touching the side of bottle neck then your cue is not travelling in a straight line. Once you've trained yourself to be able to cue down the neck of the bottle consistently you should find your game has improved and become much more consistent.
