Agreed, interesting article. This is really alarming - and sad - though reflects a lot of what I've heard about that lifestyle.

Oddly enough, I just started dating a girl who moved down here from NYC several months ago. She wasn't a banker, but was in a similar workaholic industry and quickly became an alcoholic. She says getting away from that world made her a better person, and I'm inclined to agree.
