    In an attempt to alleviate depression and insomnia many people drink too much alcohol when they are under stress.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Many people turn to alcohol as a means of coping with stress, depression, and insomnia. Alcohol is a depressant that can temporarily relieve symptoms of these conditions and induce relaxation. However, this is only a short-term solution and can actually worsen the symptoms in the long run. Excessive alcohol consumption can lead to addiction, increased risk of depression, disrupted sleep patterns, and overall negative effects on mental health. Therefore, it is true that many individuals drink too much alcohol when they are under stress in an attempt to alleviate depression and insomnia.
