Drowning Your Sorrows in Alcohol Doesn’t Help

The University of Vermont did a study on drinking and how emotions lead people, both men and women, to drink. Overall, the study showed you can’t drown your sorrows in alcohol. Some people think they can improve their mood by drinking but the opposite is true.

Men drink more out of anger. The angrier they were, the more it led to drinking thinking it would cure their woes. But the next day the opposite was true. Women drink more from sadness but felt more sad the day after. Stress is another factor the leads people to drink, but again, the day after is what you have to pay attention to. It may feel like drinking at the time can help with anger or sadness or stress, but the day after, most people regret it.
