Still not sure if substance abuse is a problem among law students? Check out: https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/drugs-are-the-downfall-of-a-brilliant-law-student/2013/01/31/09ad81be-6bc3-11e2-ada0-5ca5fa7ebe79_story.html

While Marc Gersen’s story is an extreme case its not so hard to see how he ended up where he did! The pressure of law school can be intense and without implementing the right coping methods, drugs and alcohol can seem like an easy way of dealing with the pressure and anxiety. I think we can all use this story as a wake up call and make changes in our lives for the better. If you feeling stressed and anxious talking to someone, whether its a friend or family member, and tell them what you are going through. Don’t find comfort at the bottom of a bottle or in a pill, find it in the people who matter to you and the constructive activities that bring you happiness!!
