April Alcohol Awareness Month

Sponsor: National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, Inc.

Drinking too much alcohol increases people’s risk of injuries, violence, drowning, liver disease, and some types of cancer. This April during Alcohol Awareness Month, South Central Medical & Resource Center encourages you to educate yourself and your loved ones about the dangers of drinking too much.

In Oklahoma alone, there were 510 drunk driving deaths in 2011-2012. To spread the word and prevent alcohol abuse, South Central Medical & Resource Center is joining other organizations across the country to honor Alcohol Awareness Month.
If you are drinking too much, you can improve your health by cutting back or quitting. Here are some strategies to help you cut back or stop drinking:

  • Limit your drinking to no more than 1 drink a day for women or 2 drinks a day for men.
  • Keep track of how much you drink.
  • Choose a day each week when you will not drink.
  • Don’t drink when you are upset.
  • Avoid places where people drink a lot.
  • Make a list of reasons not to drink.
  • If you are concerned about someone else’s drinking, offer to help.
