    Hi, drsamehnour!
    I'd like to provide you with these links :

    drink - Definition from the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary
    oblivion - Definition from the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary

    I could not find the definition for "drink oneself into oblivion."
    Perhaps it could mean..."to drink so much that sb can't remember anything."
    I'm not a native speaker of English, so please forgive me if I'm wrong.

    You're right; it is to drink so much that you forget about unpleasant or painful things.
