Take Action: Alcohol Awareness Month – Think before you drink

April is Alcohol Awareness Month, designed to increase command awareness and understanding, reduce stigma, and encourage people to focus on alcohol-related issues. The effects of alcohol misuse and abuse continue to be significant for the Coast Guard and have an impact on our ability to execute our missions. It’s your duty to protect your shipmates if they’re at risk of hurting themselves or someone else. Intervening early and at low levels, such as by asking an intoxicated member if he/she has a plan for transportation home or ensuring he/she is not left alone, makes it less likely that the situation will escalate. In other words, taking action early should curtail or put an end to the dangerous situation, thus preventing an alcohol incident.

Safe and effective weight loss

With the month of April fast approaching, many of us are likely becoming preoccupied with the semi-annual weigh-in requirement. Feedback from the field suggests that many members go to extremes to “make weight”. Excessive practices include fad diets, extreme workouts, and the use of quick weight loss products. These can be dangerous endeavors, and will likely not result in permanent weight loss. Read the full blog to learn about Coast Guard (CG) approved web-sites that will assist members in safe and effective weight management year-round.
