    John was unable of holding a normal conversation

    I feel that something is wrong with my sentences. I want to say that John was unable of talking with others before he had taken a few drinks, but I cannot express that exactly in my sentence. Would you please correct my mistakes?

    1. John was unable of holding a normal conversation without a few drinks.

    or should I write:

    2. John was unable of holding a normal conversation before he had drunk a few drinks.
