Some helpful tips about alcohol and drugs
Alcohol and drugs affects our thinking, our inhibitions, and our behaviour. It is a proven fact that while under the influence of drugs we can become more violent, less patient, and change our normal behaviour. What we do or not do, may affect the rest of our lives.
You are not yourself when you are under the influence of mind altering substances, such as drugs and alcohol, including prescription drugs. This is no defense for our actions while under the influence. Please remember, life is precious, drugs of any kind can harm you and others.
