Lots of lonely, empty hotel rooms and airport lounges. It would be easy for me to go full lush.
Not sure I get that one. As a forever traveling businessman I'm forever eating alone, in and out of hotels and airport lounges. Never once come close to becoming an alcoholic and I earn a bit less than these guys to boot
Pretty myopic view of the world, don't you think? Something didn't happen to you, so it doesn't exist?
Oh hell no. Never said it doesn't exist, just never existed for me and I hate sweeping generalizations or excuses with others. In fact I have more than a few friends that are either recovering or currently are dancing w the devil.
Just don't agree with the earlier statement that alluded to the thought that people on the road and living out of hotel rooms gives them an excuse to start drinking and becoming alcoholics.
Alcoholism runs much deeper than lonely nights spent in a hotel room.
I know I drink more when I travel for business. I'm lonely. I'm bored. When I travel with people, they all drink a lot. We drink every night. I don't drink every night at home.
It's no excuse but I can understand how someone at risk could get in trouble.
