According to a new study, people who work 48 hours a week or more are likely to drink alcohol more heavily.

Excerpt:

According to a new study, people who work 48 hours a week or more are likely to drink alcohol more heavily.

The study looked at data from over 330,000 people in 14 different countries. It found people who work more than the average work week were 11 percent more likely to engage in heavy drinking. Heavy drinking is considered 14 drinks or more per week for women and 21 drinks or more per week for men.

At first, as I enjoy a nice bourbon or scotch at night, I thought I fell into this category... but I have maybe 5 drinks per week... not 21. When we reach 60 hours per week, do we simply not have time to fall into this heavy drinking pit?

What are your thoughts?  Does your hectic, stressful work schedule affect your drinking habits?
