Al­co­hol and drugs af­fects our think­ing, our in­hi­bi­tions, and our be­hav­iour. We can be­come more vi­o­lent, less pa­tient, and what we do or do not do, may af­fect the rest of our lives.

You are not your­self when you are un­der the in­flu­ence of min­dal­ter­ing sub­stances, such as drugs and al­co­hol, in­clud­ing pre­scrip­tion drugs. But this is no de­fence for our ac­tions.

Please re­mem­ber, life is pre­cious, drugs of any kind can harm you and oth­ers.

If you are a vic­tim of vi­o­lence or if you know some­one who is a vic­tim of vi­o­lence please find a way to get it re­ported — there is help avail­able. Com­mu­ni­ties Against Vi­o­lence is a lo­cal com­mit­tee that is there for you, as is Vic­tims Ser­vices. There is some­where to turn. You are not alone.

We can also see from this week’s re­port im­paired driv­ers con­tinue to be ap­pre­hended by po­lice. If you con­sume al­co­hol and make the poor de­ci­sion to drive a ve­hi­cle, not only are you com­mit­ting a crim­i­nal of­fence, you are risk­ing your life and the lives of oth­ers.
