Sometimes, when you're feeling overwhelmed and stressed, the best way to deal with it is...not deal with it. This is best accomplished by, say, going to a friend's apartment and drinking a bottle of wine. And maybe having a cigarette or 10. And then by stumbling down 10th Avenue and eventually, reaching home and passing out on your bathroom floor, only to wake up at 4:13 am with a raging hangover.
Hypothetically, of course.
