BECAUSE ADDICTION

Some people are surprised to hear that I don't drink, and never have.  Yet I still go out with friends and have an awesome time.  Unfortunately, I grew up in a family where my Mom struggled with an addiction to alcohol, and it really impacted our family in a lot of ways.  I've seen how alcohol, when abused, makes people do and say things they don't really mean.  I've experienced the pain and harm that alcoholism causes to families and relationships.  Alcohol addiction is a terrible disease that effects millions of people, just like my mom.  I'm a supporter of the Better Drinking Culture because I want to help educate our future generations about how they can reduce their risk for addiction.  (Posted by Camden B.- from Holland, MI)
