As of October 2, 2012, Stop Alcohol Deaths (S.A.D.) will be shutting down. It was a really hard decision for me, but after spending the entire summer thinking about it, I decided it was time to say goodbye. I felt like a failure at first, but I have realized that I tried my best. It was only me doing everything. Being a single mother of two active school-aged kids and having a full-time job, I was getting burnt out. In a way, I felt I was letting my sister down, and that’s what hurt the most. A good friend reminded me that my sister knows what I tried to achieve and knows that I miss her every waking moment. I want to thank my friend for that.
I will keep the Tumblr and Facebook Page up, so that people who have lost loved ones due to alcohol poisoning and/or people who are dealing with alcohol in their lives can be brought together. I still believe that together we can change people’s relationship with alcohol. You can drink but in a responsible way. This was the message I was trying to relay to everyone. It doesn’t have to involve you downing drink after drink, and putting yourself and others in danger.
Thank you so much for supporting this cause. It has meant so much to me.
If you have any questions or just want to talk, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com.
Thanks again and I wish everyone the best,
