Another weekend, and for many it’s another excuse to drink all day and into the night. However, this weekend can be different.
There is help for today, and hope for tomorrow. It’s all up to you!
April is Alcohol Awareness Month, and the first weekend, April 5-7, 2019, has been designated as an Alcohol-Free Weekend. The purpose is to raise public awareness about the abuse of alcohol and how it affects individuals, families, businesses and our communities.
So how about you? Do you think you can get through the next three days without having a drink? Or are you still avoiding the first Step by telling yourself you can quit anytime you want, except you tell yourself, I don’t want to quit! It could be the craving for alcohol is driving your stinkin thinkin.
If so, I will be praying you finally come to the point where you can and will admit alcohol has taken over your life. Your need for the next drink is calling the shots. Your life is unmanageable.
Denial is not just a river in Egypt, ya know!
During Alcohol-Free Weekend, Facing Addiction with NCADD extends an open invitation to all Americans to engage in three alcohol-free days. Those individuals or families who experience difficulty or discomfort in this 72-hour experiment are urged to contact local Facing Addiction with NCADD Affiliates, Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Al-Anon to learn more about alcohol use disorder and its early symptoms.
To help you plan and develop your own 2019 Alcohol Awareness Month events we have prepared an Organizer’s Guide which you can download as a PDF or our new Alcohol Awareness Month Social Media Kit. For more information contact Leah Brock:firstname.lastname@example.org
