According to a new study in the medical journal Addiction, abstaining from alcohol will not only make you a lot less fun to go out to a bar with, it will also leave you at a greater risk for developing depression and anxiety. Meanwhile, a study in the Archives of General Psychiatry indicates that those who stick to a "Mediterranean diet" and don't overdo it with the booze are 30 percent less likely to develop symptoms of depression. Needless to say, if you find yourself feeling a little bit down today, it's nothing a trip to Italy or Greece and a visit to a local wine bar can't fix. [Time, Guardian]
