So you would think that people who drink alcohol regularly would tend to call in sick more than non-drinkers. Right?

Of course there was a study done.  This study found that moderate drinkers use the LEAST amount of sick days.

It's not clear why. Part of it might have to do with the fact that people with chronic illnesses are more likely to be non-drinkers. So they end up using more sick days in general.The only catch is we're only talking about MODERATE drinking. The study found heavy drinkers miss a lot of work too.

So when you leave work today....have a drink.....and be less likely to call in sick tomorrow. A nice red wine is calling my name!
