“You need a drink”

“You need a drink” and “I need a drink” are lines commonly written for actors.   Art often imitates life as life imitates art.   It’s a shame that art suggests that drinking alcohol is a solution for any problem.     It would be more accurately written, “you need poison”.  “I need poison”.

    Alcohol is deadly especially when it is glamorized by the arts. This includes TV, print media, movies etc. Of course this is not new it’s been around for a long, long time. All one needs to do to see up close and personal the devastation alcohol has had on individuals, families and businesses is to attend an AA meeting as a guest. Those men and women who have sought help through AA or other programs have made a courageous decision to be sober and they deserve our respect and help.

    Thanks Don for reminding us that we really don’t need a drink, we need life and hope.
