Drinking Increases When The Weather Drops
Fall and Winter offer some of the best holidays of the year, and with those holidays, there is a natural implication of drinking. Bustle has found studies showing that as the weather gets colder, the amount of alcohol that people tend to drink increases.
A study from of the University of Pittsburgh has published a study that shows that where you live tends to determine just how much alcohol you're likely to drink. Those living in colder climates with less sunlight (think Canadian Provinces or the state of Alaska) are more likely to drink more alcohol than their warmer, southern cousins (Florida, Texas, you get the idea).
Of course, it's okay to indulge around the holidays as you are spending time with family that you may not always get to see, but if you think that you may be drinking more than you typically would and think that you may be developing a problem with your drinking, it is always best to seek out help.
