This article isn’t meant to be anti-alcohol. Alcohol, like any vice, has its place in life and can be a lot of fun in moderation. Really, it only becomes a vice when you misuse it. You know when you misuse it because you wind up feeling bad after. I don’t just mean physically bad (the hangover, the dehydration, the hole in your pocket after spending $100 at the bar…) but emotionally bad. When you use alcohol to run from or cover up a problem, or really any time you drink it for any other reason than to enhance an already great time, you’re probably misusing it. We’ve all turned to a cocktail to decompress after a particularly trying day. But drinking to decompress after waiting in line at the DMV for four hours and drinking to decompress from a fight with your significant other are two very different things. Here are totally wrong reasons to drink.

You don’t want the wine to go bad

Oh, please. You only spent $7 on the bottle and you already drank half of it. Do you really need to drink a half a bottle of wine, on a night you’re just washing your delicates, all to save $3.50? Wouldn’t you happily pay $3.50 to give your liver a little time to detox from the other half of that bottle?
