April is Alcohol Awareness Month

Alcohol Awareness Month - Take a day off from drinking this week

April has been designated as Alcohol Awareness Month. It is a month to reflect and address problematic excessive drinking.

Drinking in excess not only results in poor physical health, but may also put mental well-being at risk.

Throughout the month of April, AAES will spotlight mental wellness in correlation with alcoholism, how much is too much, who is at risk, and what can be done.

  1. And, unlike street drugs, alcohol can play a large part in everyday culture. Due to how “harmless” it can seem (surely it can’t be too bad if it’s legal), addiction to alcohol is not always taken as seriously as a drug addict, despite the high death rates.

    • True ! In some cases, people find it hard to identify their alcohol addiction. I once had a person tell me they didn’t need help for alcohol because they weren’t experiencing a problem – that alcoholics are only those who need alcohol in their bloodstream around the clock to function. Sadly, they refused further education on the matter.
