My ex-gf and I had a few drinks friday night and she opened up a whoooole lot. Said she was still crazy about me and still had feelings. Are a drunk person's words REALLY a sober persons thoughts?

No alcohol is not liquid confidence. It is not truth serum. It is not "do it fluid" or "giggle juice". Alcohol is in effect a poison. It takes away a person's inhibitions and their ability to concentrate, which subsequently inhibits all other higher level thought processes such as reasoning and problem solving. It depresses the central nervous system and as a result causes changes in behavior and mood. Alcohol is also thought to have a more intense affect on individuals who are emotionally fatigued or distressed. I've never met a reasonable drunk person, and I wouldn't consider anything they said to be truthful or logical and I would not expect their behavior to be that of a rational gentleman or lady. Just think about all of the drunk people who meet a stranger and decide to elope with them that night by an Elvis impersonator. I think if they were sober and able to see the long term implications of their thoughts ("he/she is the one"), words ("I do" and "Let's get married"), and actions (signing the papers), they would seriously reconsider it all, if not take it all back completely.
I would say the real indicator that she still has feelings for you was her ability to knowingly place herself in such a vulnerable position with you. I don't know about any one else here - but the only person I will be getting drinks with is my husband or a friend I trust enough to cut me off/do the right thing when I am too intoxicated to do so. It shows that some level of trust is still there (despite the break up).
Take what you will from that. Either way - good luck.3
