The Saints are winning! The Sugarbowl is here! And with a new year looming in the air and New Year’s Eve festivities commencing, it is much too easy to fall prey to too much drinking. However, it is imperative to be aware of the consequences of too much partying. Along with consuming too many plates of food comes the ever present temptation to consume too many alcoholic beverages. According to an article published in the Gainesville Times, “[i]n 2005, the most recent year for which data was available, there were 193 alcohol-related fatalities across the country on New Year’s Eve. There were 259 in 1986.”
