It is ultimately up to the players actions, but do to the nature of the gameplay NPC's would assume the player character has left without saying goodbye to them.

Alcohol is mentioned (and shown being made) in the form of sap wine but never consumed on-screen. The player character openly dislikes it and the character making it is said to drink it but no implication of addiction or abuse.

At the end of the DLC storyline, a character who has been locked away from society for tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of years in a virtual world with their real body long dead walks into the water to put out their lantern that allows them to stay alive and embraces their demise.

Anglerfish suddenly roar when disturbed and NPCs in the DLC will crow when they notice you. There is an extremely loud, sudden cacophany of noise in the final ending sequence, described in more detail below:
.
.
.
After your jamboree around the campfire, when you jump into the ball of smoke, there will be a zoom-out to black. After a few seconds, you'll see a big flash of light and an explosion sound effect accompanied by loud, triumphant music.

(MAJOR BASE GAME AND DLC SPOILERS) The species shown in the DLC worshipped the Eye of the Universe and built shrines to it until they discover its true nature and began to burn down those shrines. Though probably not the intention, it could be seen as burning religious sites.

There's a pretty small, but crucial scene that plays directly after the credits. It may be different depending on certain choices/things you may or may not have discovered throughout your playthrough.

the ending is the very definition of bittersweet, but I'd say it's more hopeful than anything

The player will undoubtedly end up crashing their spaceship at some point.

Technically yes, but it is a supernova, not a mushroom cloud

It is possible to drown, especially if the player forgets to equip their spacesuit.
