Cold, Dark, and Drinking

People in cold, dark places tend to drink more alcohol and suffer more liver disease. 

One interesting thing this suggests is that if you are struggling to reduce your drinking, check your climate.  If it is cold and dark, consider light therapy, heat therapy, or moving to a warmer and brighter place.

Another is that people really need to learn more about appropriate self-medication.  Alcohol is a depressant and NOT a good treatment for chills.  Instead, use warming spices to support thermogenesis.
