Alcohol may just seem like a bit of liquid that men and women like to consume, but what people do not realise is it is a drug that can potential kill.

As seen in both of the films and the book Tom Brennan, drinking was the main problem which led to two deaths and one seriously injured. A lot of people would take this advice and say it will never happen to them but look at Nicole. She wasn’t doing anything wrong but got hit in the head while in a moving car and almost died. These incidents can happen to anyone even if you haven’t had a drop of
