The sessions will run for six consecutive sessions Tues- days at pm The public still thinks of al- coholics as skid-road but 80 per cent of the Alber- ta alcoholics have either full- time or part-time says Jo-Ann a coun- sellor with the commission. And she says people tend to moralize alcoholism by sug- gesting that alcoholics are what they set out to be which is not so person becomes an alcoholic before he rea'izes she said in an interview. During the weekly the public will be given an overall look at alcohol and al- including illness re- lated to alcoholism and the many stages a person goes before becoming an alcoholic The sessions will alsa ex- plain why the alcoholic is a liar. alcoholic always at- tempts to put the blame on somebody Mrs Critch- field says She claims the alcoholic must be made responsible for bis own actions because until the alcoholic accepts this re- sponsibility he will not ac- cept liis problem People can best make al- coholics aware of their prob- lem by refusing to tolerate drunken behavior in their whether the al- caholic is a a rela- tive or just an acquaintance Public attitude toward drunkeness remain CTO- sistent and not bs iclaxed for a particular occasion or on she says The information sessions will also attempt to destroy some of the mythology of al- coholism. One such myth is that no- body dies from excessive use of alcohol. Mrs Critchfield says the public realize that 25 per cent of alcoholics who withdraw fiom a sevcie alcohol intoxi- cation will suffer brain damage or die Another myth presents al- cohol as a stimulant It oei- nntely is a sedative to liie body's nervous system She also suggests people should realize that the marn- ing-after hang-over is a mild foim of withdrawal. The commission realizes that a'cohol is in our society to so in its sessions it will inform the public of T.e right reasons for Some of the right reasons suggested by the commission include dnnlaiig or be- fore a drinking with family or friends in the home and drinking to moderation m the spirit of fellowship.

He claims is not how much you how long you dnnk or what you dnnlc it's what happens inside you when you drink that you should be concerned with The sessions will also pre- sent information on the Al- cohol i c s Anonymous organi- zation and the problems an alcoholic in society when trying to continue his sobriety. Because alcohol is such a personal subject to most peo- the sessions will be lim- ited in size and additional will be held if interest war- rants them. People don't have to have an alcoholic problem in their family in order to attend. The program is aimed at the gen- eral public to help people rec- ognize alcoholism and inform them on how to deal with Vhether they encounter the alcoholism in a public place or In the home. He explained that the most success with the sealant is found m children about five or six years old. around this age are getting their permanent teeth and it has been found that within two years of this they have a high cavity he said The touted by its manufacturer as preventing tooth decr.v up to 85 per cent in permanent can be applied before any cavities start. It is rare thai the sealant comes off and even when it the pits the prime area of tooth decay remain covered He said the only problem with the sealant Is it cannot normally be applied between tie teeth. It does however adequately cover the surface area without affecting a per- son's bite. The pit and fizzure sealant gives dentists another tool with which to help them ori- ent their practices to pteven- tative treatment. The Alberta Dental Assod- ifian's Lethbridge represen- R.
