April is Alcohol Awareness Month, which is meant to help the general public better understand the nature and prevalence of alcoholism. This is imperative as there may be side effects, sometimes fatal, to individuals who suffer from this disease and others around them. We need to disregard the stigma associated with alcoholism in order to help those both directly and indirectly affected by it. Through providing the proper education about alcohol and paving the road to recovery for those who need it, we can hope that the estimated 75,000 lives taken by alcohol abuse every year will diminish.
