Alcohol Awareness Month

"The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence has designated April 2006 as the 20th Annual Alcohol Awareness Month. Alcohol Awareness Month began in 1987 in an effort to reach the American public with information about the disease of alcoholism - that it is a treatable disease, not a moral weakness, and that alcoholics are capable of recovery. " (Quoted from Chemdepctr.com)

How much is too much?

April is Alcohol Awareness Month. If you or someone you love is concerned about alcoholism, please check out that link above, or look into the multitude of resources out there. Alcoholics Anonymous is absolutely the reason that I am sober today. Not everyone is a fan, and I myself took three years before I was willing to admit that I needed the program. But the basic premise is that we are a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that we may solve our common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. What could be more effective than those who have been there, reaching out to those who need help?
