Today on our show we are going to talk about alcohol. The sobering effects that alcohol has on our health, on our lives and how things can change in a moment's notice. We see commercials on TV glamorizing drinking and how cool it is. We have seen the commercial for Captain Morgan asking you to assume the pose. Listen, it is a business. I will give them credit as they do tell you at the end of the commercial about the risk of drinking and even driving. But alcohol is ruining many lives, including the lives of teens. 25% of alcoholics are teenagers. 40% of sexually active girls aged 13-14 report that they were drunk the first time they had sex. If you are older and can drive and make the wrong choice you may take the lives of innocent people in another vehicle. Women & children who were not drinking have their lives taken from them because you chose to drink. How many fraternity parties do we hear about someone dying from alcohol poisoning? How about cancer, heart problems, pancreas problems, osteoporosis, insomnia, hepatitis, obesity, diabetes and more? So do you know the effects of alcohol on Your body? Maybe you are a little like our author today. A high functioning alcoholic. You drink everyday but are successful and function normally. His life was almost destroyed by alcohol and it can happen to you in the flash of a second. The book we will talk about today is called "The Sobering Truth: What You Don't Know Can Kill You". It is written by Dr. Jeff Herten who is our guest today. It is our honor to welcome to Your Life Matters Dr. Jeff Herten.
