We want you to have a safe, happy weekend. In order to do that, we encourage you to rethink the drink and avoid alcohol and all other harmful drugs. Your body and mind will thank you.
This week, we want you to reflect on your “why”. Why are you avoiding alcohol and other drugs? Knowing that will help you take the most care of yourself!
As it’s alcohol awareness month, we wanted to encourage you guys to spend some dedicated time reflecting on your alcohol use or misuse and the ways in which you can pursue healthier habits!
Perhaps you just need to cut back on your drinking in the interest of better help. Perhaps you feel that it would be best for you to stop drinking alcohol PERIOD. Whatever your reason, we’re here to support you! Make a commitment in April to rethink the drink in the way that is best for you and we’ll be right there with you! We know you can do it!
Do you turn to harmful substances when you’re feeling down? We encourage you to find that supportive friend you can lean on in times of trouble. It’s not always easy to ask for help, but it is the healthiest decision you could make. Another option is to seek professional help in the form of counseling. If you’re troubled or you’ve been experiencing a lot of anxiety, depression, or other mental and emotional symptoms or conditions, turning to alcohol or other drugs is the worst step you could take and will only make you feel bad in the long run. Take care of yourself and choose the healthy route!
