During the holidays there are all kinds of parties where there are gonna be drinking. There's gonna be holiday get togethers, happy hours, Christmas parties, tree lighting ceremonies and all kinds of other parties that involve drinking, smoking and whatever else. If you have a decent job but you're a drinker, there probably won't be much of a problem except you still have to be careful. Many people get into trouble with the law around this time of year with drunk driving arrests and other alchol-related troubles.


Many people are out of work during this time of year and the pressure to get gifts and join in the fun can be a real strain when you just don't have the money. Also if you're out of work and lonely because of separation from loved ones or mourning the loss of loved ones, drinking and drugging may become your means of escape but you may not even be able to afford to do it. It seems to get done anyway though.

Does holiday depression hide itself among us in ways that we don't always identify?

Check out the show this Wednesday and let's see what we can find out.
