It’s OK Not to Drink – Alcohol Abuse Kills 3 Million a Year

Open Your Mind to the Possibilities - Community Rethink the Drink Alcohol Abuse Kills

With 3 million alcohol-related deaths
6 per minute taking their last breath
It’s ok not to drink
Don’t ya think?

Fight Back

Alcohol Abuse Kills

Just because they say harsh words
It doesn’t mean it’s true
They just haven’t seen life
From your point of view

They haven’t been standing on your side of the street
Just ‘cos you’re struggling
It doesn’t mean defeat

Keep going

First they’ll ask you why you’re doing it
Then they’ll ask you how you did it
Then they might ask you to help them too

Just be you

You take a Drink – The Drink takes a Drink – The Drink takes You

With 3 million alcohol related deaths
6 per minute taking their last breath
It’s ok not to drink
Don’t ya think?

Fight Back

Alcohol Abuse Kills
