All too often, it is innocent people that feel the devastation that results from drinking and driving. Many times, the person who has been drinking escapes without harm. If they had only let someone else drive, or better yet, not had anything to drink, there would be far fewer deaths during the holidays.
Type “Drunk Driving Stories” into your browser and see what you come up with. There are so many heart wrenching stories out there. Families, even communities have been forever changed because someone decided drinking and driving was acceptable. Many of these people who did drink and drive even had people offer to drive them before they left. But, because people’s perception is poor when they have been drinking, they chose to drive anyway. The result: death and destruction.
The holidays bring an increase in social gatherings. Christmas parties, New Years Eve parties and other events mean people will be gathering to have fun. These events are coordinated in the hopes of bringing enjoyment to the people who attend. Many people sadly feel that alcohol increases their enjoyment. When all is said and done, it ends in drinking and driving, which in turn leads to disaster. The words “Don’t drink and drive” have been spoken, written, even put up on billboards, but there are some that just don’t listen. As a result, families are left to deal with death during the holidays.
Narconon remembers these families that have been devastated by the effects of drinking and driving. “Don’t drink and drive” isn’t just a phrase to Narconon, it’s a plea. Too many families suffer at the hands of drunk drivers. Drinking and driving should never be acceptable. Never. It’s an accident waiting to happen. Take a look around you. Someone near and dear to you has a high possibility of being the victim of a drunk driver this holiday season.
Narconon would like to offer hope to those who wish to put an end to their own drinking. There is help available, and there is no better time than the holidays to get it. It would be a gift to yourself, your family and your community. Drinking is a dead end, and drinking and driving is literally a dead end. Don’t wait until you are being told by a police officer that the driver of that other car is now dead. The time to get help is now.
