My assumption is that long hours of work creates stress therefore people drink to relieve it. If the consumption of alcohol is strictly to feel good or to avoid feeling bad then you might have a drinking problem.

Hence find out why you overwork and focus on some solutions and "work to live not live to work." Of course, it's easier said than done but with Japan's killer work ethic. I wonder.
