Everybody Hurts, Sometimes...

"Everybody Hurts, Sometimes", that does not have to be the theme this holiday if you or someone you know is planning to drink. The holidays are a time of mixed emotions and for some people who have suffered from addiction, a time where relapse is a huge possibility unless you are vigilant. There are always people who you can reach out for and talk to when times are hard, 12 Step meetings, friends, and family. Extra vigilance is required this time of the year and life changing mistakes can be avoided. We all have the power to be responsible and we all have the ability to serve someone who is in need of support.

We encourage you to watch this short video montage of the last 20 years of the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) commercials in Australia, a campaign that has had a hand in saving hundreds of lives since 1989. On December 10th 1989 the first TAC commercial went to air. In that year the road toll was 776; by year 2008 it had fallen to 303. Don't be a statistic this holiday season, if you are not sure you can drive then don't risk it.

NOTE: As a word of caution, this video is extremely graphic.
