Speaking out

21

January

Many people choose to ignore binge drinking. It is dismissed as a game or a fun time. But every day people die from the consequences of binge drinking: alcohol poisoning, car wrecks, drownings, etc. Have you ever participated in parties or events where people binge drink? Do you know people who drink excessive amounts of alcohol on a daily or weekly basis? Did you know that drinking four or more drinks in a short period of time is considered binge drinking? Look in the St. Petersburg Times and tbt* for bar and restaurant ads. Do any of these ads encourage binge drinking? Online journaling can be a great way to express your thoughts. Think about this issue and share your thoughts in your journal and online at the NIE Blogging Zone.
