Hey!, the winters are long and dark around here! And some people are just not good at finding alternative things to do which are both positive and fun.

Actually, a lot of our heavy drinkers are immigrants from Texas and Oklahoma. But, in their case they are probably just really homesick, with all the fond memories of getting drunk with their families back home! ; )

best wishes,
