October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Violence often follows drinking/drugging.

 

When we ingest very small amounts of alcohol and even some drugs, our inhibitions leave and our judgment becomes very poor. Violence can be inevitable.

Hidden scars include emotional, mental, physical, financial and social pain.  Survivors last but they don't always live.The National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233).

Alcoholics are still responsible even though we do not plan our downfall.

Binge drinking can be fatal - addiction low tolerance of normal people.

One of ten persons is an alcoholic. Nine of ten can drink or smoke marijuana normally, sometimes may abuse, but do not continue if there is a problem. Abuse of alcohol, one to two ounces in at three three hours is usual.  If you drink more than this, check to see if you have a difficult time stopping.  Call me at (407) 786.1913 for more.

Be careful,

Doc Pete
