Proverbs 23:29-30

Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes? They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine.

The remainder of Proverbs 23 is a classic description of a drunkard. They bring all kinds of trouble upon themselves and stagger from one sorrow to another. Their life is marked by contention, since they are forever trying to pick a fight, they have bruises and wounds as the result of their actions. They grumble and complain incessantly, but fail to realize or recognize that they are the cause of their troubles. Because of their consistent activity of consuming alcohol, their eyes are bleary and bloodshot.
