What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?

In the movies, getting wasted is always funny.

(NSFW Language)

 

In real life, it hurts. It hurts everybody.

(Tough to watch. Important to watch.)

In the U.S., 40,000 deaths a year are due to drunk driving and other alcohol-related accidents. That’s an entire town’s worth of people–gone–because of irresponsible choices.

Personally, I’m not a big drinker. I did my fair share of drinking myself stupid when I was younger. I like a glass of wine once in awhile, but I prefer to have fun I can remember (and not regret) in the morning.

If you like to indulge, invite friends in.

Want to go out? Designate a driver.

No designated driver? Call a cab.

Cab too expensive? Your life is worth more than the cost of cab fare.

(P.S. in some areas AAA is offering a Tipsy Tow service free of charge)

Have a happy, safe, mindful New Year’s Eve.
