We dedicate this week to those who do not partake of alcohol.
Cost to Society
How many millions of dollars per year to non-drinkers pay in taxes to support emergency and health services for people who do stupid things while under the influence.
We encourage employers who control the budget for morale events to consider those of their employees who do not drink alcohol. How many more morale events can be scheduled for the next fiscal year if alcohol were not served at these events? Or perhaps other treats can be served as well so that non-drinkers won’t feel excluded.
It may be that drinkers would willingly give up the alcohol at morale events in exchange for more exciting events (buy out a movie theatre or visit an amusement park).
Drinking neighbors and coworkers
Those who drink may not realize how bad alcohol smells on their breath to a non-drinker. Drinkers, take a step back when talking to your neighbor, please. No, you don’t have to be stone drunk to have intoxicating breath. :)
