The Dangers of Self-Medicating

Positive and negative experiences shape who you are. The negatives you see on the job can pile up and weigh on you. Alcohol may seem like a good option to help carry the weight, but it hides the physical and emotional damage you may be doing by trying to handle it all on your own.
