This week, we want to encourage you to avoid alcohol, opioid misuse, marijuana, and tobacco. Whatever your “drug of choice”, we want to encourage you to set it aside in the interest of your health and the betterment of your future!
Binge drinking is one of the worst things you can do when consuming alcohol. Binge drinking can lead to all sorts of impairments, lead to accidents, and even lead to alcohol poisoning which can be fatal. Are you one of the 24%? If you are, you are not alone and you can always make a change for the better. Choose this day to avoid alcohol misuse and protect your body and mind from the dangers of consuming alcohol. If you are a teen, avoid alcohol altogether to protect your growing body and brain. If you are an adult, avoid alcohol misuse and make choices for your best health. We know you can do it!
