The consequences of alcohol
are not just on the person that’s consuming the alcohol, but, quite often, on other people around that aren’t consuming. And whether they’re victims of abuse, whether it be physical
or verbal abuse, whether they’re victims
of car accidents, in the case of impaired drivers, the residual effects of the
consumption of alcohol are huge. And even when we have the
most tragic of incidents, impaired driving crashes, for example, the rippling effect of the use of alcohol can be very traumatic and devastating for a lot of people that maybe aren’t even involved
in that incident itself. It becomes very tragic
and very sad, quickly.
