Excessive alcohol use can harm you




















     Some volunteers that are working to support others overcome addictions have had personal experience with these substances. Thus, their voluntary commitment to making a difference is truly altruistic. One addiction that has been attributed to millions of deaths worldwide is alcohol.

    The CDC states "that excessive alcohol use has led to approximately 88,000 deaths and 2.5 million years of potential life lost (YPLL) each year in the United States from 2006 – 2010, shortening the lives of those who died by an average of 30 years. The CDC also states that excessive drinking was responsible for 1 in 10 deaths among working-age adults aged 20-64 years. The economic costs of excessive alcohol consumption in 2010 were estimated at $249 billion, or $2.05 a drink."

    One voluntary program dealing with alcoholism is ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS(AA). AA is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; they are self-supporting. Their primary purpose is to stay sober and help others achieve sobriety.
