We lose more than 2 million years of potential life every year!

by Daniel

Hello again!

I just wanted to share a video with you about the potential life we've lost to drugs and alcohol abuse. If you can believe it, we're collectively robbed of more than 2 million years of human life each calendar year.


Using the latest census data, we found out what those lost lives could have turned out to be. How many would have been lawyers? How many would have gotten married? You can see our findings for yourself here:

If you find the video as haunting as I do, I hope you'll consider publishing it on your site.


Thanks so much! I can't wait to hear what you think.

Scary but informative video

Hello Daniel,

Thanks for sending this video. It is scary but does a great job of showing the horrible impact of drug and/or alcohol addiction.

I really appreciate you sending it to our visitors and hope that people begin to full grasp the enormity of the problem and harm caused by drug and alcohol addiction.

Thanks again,

Debbie
