Thanksgiving Eve = Party Time!

Updated on

For many Thanksgiving is a time of reunion. Around the country, Thanksgiving eve marks the biggest party night of the year. Nearly every bar will be filled with people who haven’t seen each other for a period of time. Thanksgiving eve is the beginning of the holiday season and celebrations which means lots of alcohol flowing.

The National Institutes of Health states that nearly 11 million people who drink are under the age of 21. In addition, the National Institutes of Health states that individual’s between the ages of 18-24 are most apt to participate in binge drinking. Nearly 5,000 underage drinkers die every year from alcohol-related motor vehicle accidents.

Research demonstrates that children of parents who keep alcohol in their homes and share it with their children are at greater risk for developing alcohol addiction later in life. In general, the holiday season provides people with the opportunity to overindulge in alcohol.

People who suffer from alcohol abuse love opportunities, such as holidays, that allow them to drink freely without the worry of being judged. Alcoholics typically like to drink with others who drink as they do. The holiday season often exposes a person’s alcoholic behavior. It is not a coincidence that addiction treatment centers are most crowded upon the completion of the holiday season.
