Confessions of a College Woman

Here’s this week’s confession from a senior at Duke University in NC:

“I took some really tough and stressful courses last year and as a result, I ended up drinking a lot on Thursdays nights and during the weekend to get all that academic stress off my mind. Only now, I’m deep into summer and I’m a lot less stressed but I’m still drinking just as much as I used to, maybe even a little more.”

Rajul’s Take:

Don’t worry – this is a really common concern. You need to use your judgment on this one. I mean, everyone wants to have fun in the summertime, but is it to the point where you can’t have fun without drinking? If that’s the case, definitely cut down and – I hate to sound like a mom but – make sure you’ve always got a sober DD when you’re out.
