Why Does Stress Make Us Turn to Alcohol?

Stress doesn’t make us turn to alcohol, it’s the done thing in our culture. It’s what we turn to automatically…

I was watching an episode of Once upon a Time on Netflix, program aimed specifically at children. When some of the characters went through a stressful time, they opened up a bottle of Scotch and drank it right there on screen.

What kind of message does that send to our children?

From cradle to grave, we are marketed to aggressively about alcohol. Relaxation, celebration, and stress… What other ‘medicine’ can give you so much from a single bottle?

Take care and have a great week.


Until next time...
Onwards and Upwards!

    Hi Kevin, I love your teachings. But I struggle when I’ve had a stressful day, teaching full-time, raising kids and managing so many things. You are so fortunate to be able to go for long walks in the day… and your child is grown up so no family stress. But I do feel that having a drink after a very stressful day with so many responsibilities to juggle can be an immediate relaxant. I instantly relax after a wine. I’m talking about having majorly stressful days. Any advice?
