PRLog - Feb. 24, 2011 - TROIS-RIVIERES, Quebec -- Drinking is an activity that many people enjoy. It happens at family gatherings, social events and pubs and bars everywhere. Some people who enjoy a drink occasionally have nothing to worry about, however, many are not that lucky. Alcohol addiction is a growing problem globally. “Having too much to drink causes a multitude of problems, and yet, people continue to do it” says JF Dubreuil of Narconon Trois-Rivieres.
Too Much to Drink?
Globally, 1 in every 25 deaths is connected to alcohol consumption. This includes alcohol-related causes of death include accidents, violence, poisoning, mouth and throat cancer, colorectal cancer, breast cancer, suicide, stroke and many others. Alcohol
today is doing the same damage that tobacco was a decade ago. In order to curb the skyrocketing numbers, facts must be faced. Narconon Trois-Rivieres produces videos and other material on alcohol consumption, as well as running treatment for alcohol abuse (http://www.narconon.ca/
The highest consumption of alcohol is in Europe, but is closely followed by North America. Women comprise the highest number of consumers of alcohol, according to Time. Studies indicate that raising the price of alcohol does curb its use, however, more deterrent is necessary. So called “Sin taxes” are rebelled against even by people who do not consume alcohol. Reducing the number of alcohol related deaths can only be achieved by reducing the amount of alcohol consumed. Alcohol rehab does help those who suffer from alcohol addiction, but even people who do not become addicts can die from alcohol related causes.
Alcohol prohibition, as everyone knows, simply won’t work. People have to decide for themselves which substances they put into their bodies. Education, such as that provided by Narconon Trois-Rivieres is an excellent start. People have to realize the damage that alcohol can and does cause. When tobacco education got into full swing, many people stopped smoking. The same information has to be recognized concerning alcohol and the damage it causes. Consider the irony that people can to into a bar and consume alcohol, then drive home. However, in many places, those same people are not allowed to smoke cigarettes.
Alcohol kills. The damage done by alcohol reaches far beyond the fatalities of, and caused by alcohol addicts. People would benefit from learning as much as they can about alcohol, and alcohol consumption. Alcohol addiction treatment centers, such as Narconon Trois-Rivieres has a lot of helpful information about alcohol in general, as well as information about alcohol addiction. What people learn today, could save a life tomorrow.
