Not your emotional wounds, silly! A gaping, infection-prone hole somewhere on your epidermis. Booze can disinfect that. It's not what a hospital would do, sure, but sometimes you're stuck in the woods with one arm pinned to the ground by an un-movable tree and nothing on your person besides a flask and a hacksaw.

If it's good enough for him, it's good enough for you.
