Who’s in Charge of Your Drinking?

Life is hard enough, right? We need something to cope. Why shouldn’t we have a temporary escape from the stresses of life? We know how serious alcohol abuse can become, but most casual drinkers feel that it isn’t really harming them.
The truth is that consistent use of alcohol, even at surprisingly low levels, can pave the way for serious health problems.
There are many reasons why alcohol sales total more than $200 billion every year in the United States alone. It’s highly addictive for one. According to the “Alcohol-Related Disease Impact” (ARDI) report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an average of 140,557 people lost their lives per year in the U.S. alone from 2015 to 2019 due to the chronic and acute effects of alcohol abuse. The effects of sustained alcohol abuse over time can include liver disease, digestive problems, heart problems, increased risk of cancer, and more.
