Alcohol is a poison . . . sorry please

Just got into a discussion with colleagues and friends today and everyone was talking about the weekend’s ‘fun’. Typically, I was embarrassed when I was asked about how my weekend went.

Football dominated.

Most people went out to have ‘drinks’ yeah… but gosh I could see their disappointments when I told them I couldn’t go with them because half a pint of beer could make me tipsy…

What?! So what do you do to socialise since you don’t drink?

Mehn I struggled to convince them that there were many ways I could have fun…

However, before close of work today, news filtered in that about 51 people have died in Libya from alcohol poisoning…. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-21747409

Ahaaa….now I can scream at them…

This happened in a country where the sale of alcohol is ILLEGAL…

Think of what can happen in a country like ours (NIGERIA, UK) where one can freely have access to any form of alcohol…

What is alcohol poisoning? What are the effects? How do we know? How do we prevent it? What do we do?

Take some time to look at this, It can save a life. Click on the link below:
