I don't need to be intoxicated to sleep like a log - unless I am ill or disturbed, I will sleep without moving. I have fallen asleep (in bed) with full cornflake bowls, working laptops, books and pens and paper on my lap; and woken up in the morning many hours later with them still there (8 hour old cornflakes are not nice).
I think intoxicated individuals have, on occasion, developed bedsores due to a lack of movement. Also, it is possible to make a limb fall asleep from a pressure point. Perhaps it is much more dangerous if there is no movement for 8 hrs.
