April is National Alcohol Awareness Month
Did you know that April is National Alcohol Awareness Month?
Alcohol dependency and addiction aren’t often talked about openly–especially since we live in a culture where alcohol consumption is the center stage in so many social activities. It’s something that is so common, that we sometimes feel as if we have to explain ourselves if we don’t want to partake; we’ll make excuses like “I have a headache,” or “I’ll just get sleepy” or “I have to work early tomorrow”–which all might be true (and all are good reasons to refrain from drinking alcohol!) but it’s telling that we often feel the need to provide a reason instead of just saying “no thank you.”
