Why is "power down inebriation" in this situation?
Barney says Ted thinks too much before hitting on a girl
Barney : and it's gonna keep on happening until you power down that bucket of neuroses inebriation style.
(It's from How I met your mother S1 Ep9)
I found the meaning of inebriation as intoxication.
In this situation, Ted should drink more. Then, why should Ted power down that bucket of neuroses inebriation style?

= until you reduce all that anxiety that you have, by getting drunk.
(I hope you don't use American television sit-coms to learn correct English. Many use crude language and they are full of puns, idioms, and jive talk current to the day.)
