Is it OK to drink alcohol for stress relief?

When I get home from work, I need to relax, so I have a drink. Is that a problem?

Alcohol is a depressant. Though it is legal, it is addictive and a controlled substance.


Alcohol Addiction

Many people do not realize that they are addicted to alcohol and continue to feed their dependencies every day.


Alcohol Abuse

Many cultures around the world use alcohol in small doses as treatment for minor ailments.

Not a problem at all. Many people find alcohol to have therapeutic qualities. But when "a drink after work" starts becoming routine then you may want to reconsider how you relieve stress.
