DON’T SOLVE YOUR PROBLEMS WITH ALCOHOL

“Risk factors for developing a drinking problem include low self-esteem, depression, anxiety or another mood problem, as well as having parents with alcoholism.”

 

Watch for the signs in your life, the lives of your friends, and others. Caring friends inquire and reach out.

News like this is just sad… If you are a business owner, carding customers should be an immediate action when someone comes up to the counter to purchase alcohol. Clerks and other sales associates should be trained to understand the importance of compliance when it comes to restricting alcohol purchases to legal adults. An adult should never serve or sell alcohol to minors. PERIOD. Rethink the drink and prevent underage alcohol abuse!
