Everyone needs to unwind, but we don't all do it in the same way. Among the 50 states, it is people in West Virginia who most commonly report taking mood-altering drugs to help them relax, whereas Alaskans are the least likely to say the same, a new poll finds.
Nationwide, about 19 percent of Americans reported taking drugs to relax daily or almost every day, according to the 2014 Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index. About 62 percent of Americans said they never use drugs for this reason, and the remaining 19 percent said they use them rarely or sometimes.
