My son Brandon was an outstanding all-American kid that was full of life, but alcohol impaired his control and eventually robbed him of life.

I will be heading over to Brookville this evening to speak with the Jefferson County Adult Probation DUI Class. I always walk away from this class feeling pretty good. There is just something about this group that I know at least one person there will "get it" tonight. One more person will continue to make better choices after hearing Brandon's story on how Alcohol destroyed his life and our worlds.
Please, If you do drink, Don't Drive.

Prices are based on average prices of cigarettes in Kentucky. Any day is a good day to stop smoking.
I really wish everyone in the country could embed this girls picture in the head forever. If this is not a picture of what Drugs do I do not n=know why she has so many scabs.
Here is what I want you to think about. She is 28 ! TWENTY EIGHT !!! Do you think 10 or 12 years ago she ever thought she would be where she is today?
In Most cases it starts with a little alcohol. Then it becomes more and more until drugs become the norm while you try to get that "feeling" again.
I have talked to so many people in rehab or that have been thru rehab and made it (for now anyway) that say she has no control. The drugs and or alcohol need tells her what to do.
Don't let yourself get caught in this Trap ! You might think the world doesn't understand you. You may think your parents are tough. You may think life isn't fair. It's all in your head. Life for you is just life is for us.
Live your life Drug & Alcohol free. Remember this picture and remember where it can take you.
And most of all, if you do decide in live you need to try drugs or Drink, Promise your family you will never Drink and Drive !!! Thanks
