Why do people drink so much?

Hey guys-long time no blog! Just enjoying what is left of my summer. I just got in from a co-worker's bachelorette party at the Trump Hotel and I must say that hotel is s-p-e-c-t-a-c-u-l-a-r. Beautiful views of the city on the 26th floor suite. We then headed to Rebar on the 16th floor and it was just as lovely. It was packed for  a Friday night. Just be prepared to bring a  lot of cash-I paid 15 bucks for a wine spritzer.

Anyways, my husband always wondered why people get SO drunk and excited about the nightlife here in Chicago. Even anywhere for that matter,let me tell you why and what I tell him.

Here in the US,there is a whole lot of stress. A whole lot. The stress can come from a variety of situations. Maybe it's that spat you had with your boyfriend. Or maybe you just had a grueling 40 hour power study session for that final exam that you pray you passed. Or maybe it's your job and you are having a really crappy day. Or maybe you just finished a 60 hour work week. Whatever the case may be,you will want to relieve what caused you this stress.

The healthy ways of course is to exercise,deep breathe,mediate,yoga,whatever, to decrease your level of stress. A lot of times however,people hit up the bars and do some heavy duty drinking instead. Or they just go on an all out shopping spree to help them relieve this stress as well. Too much and even too little can be detrimental to your physical and emotional health on some level.

This is why. People do work hard,but they play hard as well. This is my motto.

As long as it doesn't destroy your overall well being and  you get to a point where you cannot function in today's society.

Well,time to take this makeup off,and get ready for bed,and hit up brunch somewhere in the city tomorrow. Goodnight!
