    April is Alcohol Awareness Month -

    Drinking too much alcohol increases people’s risk of
    injuries, violence, drowning, liver disease, and some types of cancer. This April during Alcohol
    Awareness Month, The Town Planner encourages you to educate yourself and your loved ones
    about the dangers of drinking too much.

    To spread the word and prevent alcohol
    abuse, The Town Planner is joining other organizations across the country to honor
    Alcohol Awareness Month.

    If you are drinking too much, you can improve your
    health by cutting back or quitting. Here are some strategies to help you cut back or stop
    drinking:

    Limit your drinking to no more than 1 drink a day for women or 2
    drinks a day for men. Keep track of how much you drink. Don’t drink when you are
    upset. Avoid places where people drink a lot. Make a list of reasons not to
    drink.
