Feeling Stressed? Skip That Glass Of Wine

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Having a cocktail may not be the best way to unwind after a stressful day.

New research in the medical journal “Alcoholism” shows drinking alcohol to release tension doesn’t allow people to deal with the root of their stress, which can make the stress last even longer.

The study also finds that stress can reduce alcohol’s intoxicating effects, which can cause people to drink even more.
