tosh

Here is my best explanation:

'stuff' is the definition.

(both can mean nonsense)

'drunk back on hard' is the subsidiary indication.

'drunk' becomes 'sot' ('sot' can be a synonym of 'drunk').

'back' is a reversal indicator.

'on' means one lot of letters go next to another.

'hard' becomes 'h'.

'sot' written backwards gives 'tos'.

'tos'+'h'='tosh'
