When it comes to the recent survey by the AAC (American Addiction Centers), it’s being done for a reason: results. Whenever the AAC does something, they have a reason behind it. There is a method to what they are doing with these surveys.
When they get 600 men and women together to talk about drinking and driving, it is because they want answers just as badly as you do if you know someone suffering from an addiction. Addiction takes over people’s lives. It ruins families. It causes people to get completely sucked up in it. It is all they think about, 24/7. They don’t know anything else out of life.
As a matter of fact, they put their own life at risk when they get behind the wheel of a car while driving drunk. Many times, they just don’t care about living anymore. That is when the AAC really steps in and helps them out.
They want to help give them the will to live again and feel good about their life. They have made some poor decisions and have fallen down the wrong path. Here is the good news: it is not too late to turn it around and fix it. They just need to listen to the advice that is given out by the experts at the AAC.
They need to hear about the people that are binge drinking on the Fourth of July and say to themselves, “I don’t want to be like them. I want to be better.” They need to learn from those who are no longer with us. It is a shame it had to come to that, but since it has, they can use that as a learning tool on what not to do when it comes to handling addiction.

Many addictions run very, very deep because they are from their own DNA. They might have had a father, a mother, or a grandparent that suffered from alcoholism. It was passed down to them. They need to realize they have a choice in the matter, now.
26 percent of the people surveyed did not call for a ride-sharing app, even though they had too much to drink. There are ways to conquer it. It might take many years to do it, but as they say, “one day at a time.”
They will fall and they will fail many times. As long as they keep fighting and keep their eye focused on the end goal, they will reach the point to where the period in their life where they were drinking is nothing but a distant memory for them. It’s in the past, and they will leave it there.
