LOS ANGELES AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- Alcohol Awareness Month occurs each April in part because of how easily problems associated with alcohol use can occur anytime and anywhere alcohol is consumed. Overall, alcohol use is up since the Covid-19 impact and restrictions began.

The bad effects are less visible than the good and can creep up on the unsuspecting person. When used improperly, alcohol can contribute to poor decision-making, negative physical health effects, negative mental/neurological health effects and damage to personal and professional roles and relationships.

Responsible use starts with you and includes looking out for your family and friends.
