Holiday High

There are a lot of people who don't like the holiday season. It has the highest suicide rate of any time of year. There is also a higher rate of drug and alcohol abuse during these winter months. There are a number of possible reasons for this - people miss their families, they are reminded of how lonely life can be, it's cold and dark, and a lack of sunlight has been shown to be depressing, plus a lot of the self-destructive substance abuse is done under the name of "celebrating". I don't know that little baby Jesus would be happy with you celebrating His birth with a 5th of whisky. Regardless of the reason for the abuse this season, if you need help, please seek a good drug rehabilitation center near you.
