Celebrate Your Independence From Alcohol This July 4th

As the nation prepares for a long weekend to commemorate the Fourth of July holiday, the Coronavirus outbreak is an ever present reminder of the unprecedented challenges that our families are facing. With health and safety top of mind, many revelers and partygoers, are foregoing traditional gatherings like backyard barbeques, parades and fireworks, opting instead to follow CDC guidelines for social distancing. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html

Americans are to be commended for their resilience and resolve during this time of uncertainty, but alcohol related tragedies inform our view; a pandemic within a pandemic, the sobering statistics are alarming. With more than half of the population 18 and older reporting purchasing more alcohol, and in larger quantities, drinking our way through the pandemic has become the norm. But at what cost?

Throughout history our cultural celebrations are often romanticized by alcohol use, and the impact on our society at large is staggering. In addition to fueling crime, domestic abuse and automobile related fatalities, the health effects of alcohol dependence on the bodys' natural immune response are well documented, and studies show that this is of particular concern when fighting off infections like COVID-19. https://www.phillyvoice.com/alcohol-coronavirus-covid-19-america-drinking-future-health-problems/

As we come together in solidarity this Fourth of July, we must reimagine what health and freedom looks like to the next generation who are leading the charge in protest of the status quo. Let's prioritize liberation from alcohol as we move into this new post pandemic frontier. Let's celebrate our independence from the alcoholic culture that has enslaved us for far too long.. https://www.revolutioninaddiction.com/services/alcohol-addiction
