The More Successful You Are the More You Drink?

Stressed Out CEOs Turning to Booze

New research shows that British chief executives of big companies and public sector organizations are drinking the equivalent of almost three bottles of wine each week. The findings suggest that a higher position on the totem pole corresponds with drinking more alcohol. Men with the most hefty titles drink an average of more than 11 medium glasses of wine, weekly.

Health is at risk for these successful but stressed-out big shots, whose consumption exceeds the total recommended weekly limit. According to the study, doctors (shouldn't they know better!), lawyers, accountants, and other professional men are also sipping above-average amounts of alcohol. Moderation is out of mode for these busy guys, who are likely to drink twice as much as women.

3 bottles a week? Of wine? That's not evidence of heavy drinking. That's evidence of under-reporting.

God! A drink after a crap day of work is amazing but I try not to drink when I feel like I need a drink. It's a little too close to dependence to make me comfortable. I also try not to drink everyday, one glass with dinner every night can become a habit.

I think also they entertain at drink, etc, so sometimes drink there. Is there a link for this study?

Ok You always hear that one or two glasses with dinner is fine, so at just one glass a day, that is already 7 glasses a week! I only wish I had the CEO salary that matched my 7 glass a week habit!!

If I liked wine, I would be the same way. I could have drank a bottle after yesterdays day of work. I chose to release my stress through playing sports.

Yea my dad is a CEO and enjoys his drinks (I don't think it's above adverage though). My parents will usually come home have a martini (maybe two), then sip up a whole bottle of wone at dinner haha! But that's the way it's always been!
