How Much Is Too Much?

I have been kinda stressed out lately and I think that may have something to do with this. I go out a couple times a week and on the weekends but I think it is just a phase I am going through.

I grew up around alcoholics all my life and I always promised myself I would be careful not to get dependent on it. I too went through a phase when I was in my mid twenties. Like you I went out a couple of times a week and on weekends. After a while you start to get burnt out. I did this for a while and worked 2 jobs. So I would go to work on very little sleep. When your young your body can handle a lot of abuse. Anyhow the phase passed. I did this out of having a wild hair up my butt so I was just sowing some oates so to speak. Just be careful that you aren't reaching for a drink for the wrong reasons. If you are depressed then alcohol is one of the worst things you can do since alcohol is a depressant. It only makes you feel worse and will bring you down even further!
