Alcoholics Awareness April – 2015 Desktop Calendar

Tuesday, March 31, 2015

April is officially Alcoholic Awareness Month, and 2015 marks the 29th year since its inception in 1987 by the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD).

Now, I do not have an alcohol problem (in fact, I wrote a long-ass post about the downsides of alcohol a while back) but I know people who struggle internally with their drinking. It is usually a habit triggered by some personal distress, which leads to addiction and problems later on.

One such example is Charlie Sheen, which is what this month's calendar would revolve around. The graphics are created by three very accomplish typographers and designers; Richard, Dan and Erik – and it is a marvelous representation of those who share the same struggles as Sheen. It is quite a spectrum away from our colorful March Madness calendar, but still has a nice pop of orange, which I like.

This month, as you download this calendar, I urge you to think about friends and family members who have an alcohol problem. Talk to them, reach out to them. Usually they have a very dark past hidden and most of the time, require just a shoulder to cry on and a listening ear. If you can be that someone to help them through a tough time this month, do it for their sake and for good karma. Read more on the signs and symptoms, how to recognize them and reach out to those in need.

  1. Nice post. I guess I'm also one of the lucky ones and don't actually know anyone with a drinking problem
