1 in 3 New Jerseyans Lie About Their Alcohol Consumption
Let's be real, some of the questions that get asked at the doctor’s offices are on another level. Sometimes filling out the forms at the doctor's office can make you feel like a complete alcoholic but really you are just living your best life.
American Addiction Center reported that in the state of New Jersey 29% of people lie about their alcohol intake. That means 1 in 3 New Jerseyans are lying about how much alcohol they really drink.
Let's be real, none of us think we actually drink too much.
It was also mentioned on AmericanAddictionCenters.org, "Half of drinkers would ignore their doctor’s advice to cut down their alcohol intake." It was also stated, "A fifth are dishonest with family and friends about their alcohol consumption."
The Garden State is over the average of dishonesty when it comes to alcohol consumption. The average is 21%, according to AmericanAddictionCenters.org.
We have heard it from many people, "if you don't stop drinking you will not lose weight" but is that really true?
Supposedly most alcoholic beverages have 100 calories and a lot of us are unaware of that. We all know we aren't a one drink type of person.
To be honest with you, I once completely let go of alcohol for a year and still didn't lose weight. But maybe it's just not the same for everyone, right?
