TROIS-RIVIERES, Quebec, Dec. 20 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Drunken people never consider themselves to be drunk. They just don’t. They can be falling down, slobbering, wetting themselves drunk and they still will get behind the wheel of a car and drive. Sadly, it is often up to friends, bar-keeps and even sometimes perfect strangers to divert tragedy. If someone drinks and drives, the probability is very high that an accident will ensue, says Narconon Trois-Rivieres.
Deaths as a result of someone drinking and driving are senseless deaths. There are too many options available. Just DON’T drink and drive. Take a taxi, ask for a ride, do something, but don’t drink and drive. Yes, you are probably drunk. Even if you are not, would getting a ride be so terrible? No, what would be terrible is causing an accident that claims a life.
Data shows that deaths due to drinking and driving spike during the holiday season. This may be because there are so many social gatherings, but it also gives the alcoholic an excuse to drink. As if drinking isn’t bad enough, they decide to drive too. Many families spend the holiday season mourning instead of celebrating due to the carelessness of drunken drivers. Narconon Trois-Rivieres remembers these families during the holiday season (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ID6HQ9l-MzM). They understand the incredible hurt and loss that is felt. They also would like to offer hope.
The holiday season is the perfect time to address an issue with alcohol. It is a gift that is not only for person who uses alcohol, but also their family, friends and community. If the thought of being in rehab is so terrible, think of spending the holidays in jail for motor vehicle homicide. Now THAT would be terrible.
Drinking and driving never ends well. It may end without incident, but it doesn’t end well. Innocent people are killed every year by those who drink and drive. Alcohol may make people merry at parties, but the mood is much more somber at the scene of an accident. Where is the joy in alcohol then? In a split second, lives are changed forever due to drinking and driving. No one ever thinks it will happen to them, but too often, it does. After the party they are surrounded by flashing lights and sirens and faced with the very harsh reality that they may have killed or injured someone. It’s a few simple words that mean so very much; Please don’t drink and drive.
