Rethink Your Holiday Drinking

Many of us look forward to celebrations during the holidays, a time when some people are more likely to drink beyond their limits than at other times of the year. Some will suffer adverse consequences that range from fights to falls to traffic crashes. Sadly, we often put ourselves and others at risk because we don’t understand how alcohol affects us during an evening of celebratory drinking. Take some time and encourage others to look at drinking habits and how it may affect our health. Learn how much alcohol is in the ‘standard drink’ and how many drinks are in common containers. You may be surprised. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism provides some alcohol facts and an infographic you can use to provide awareness of alcohol intake during the holidays.
