December is the month in which most drink-drive arrests are made. According to a car insurance poll by LV=, of the 2,028 people questioned, 15% had driven over the legal alcohol limit despite the fact that 88% admitted being intoxicated affected their ability to drive safely.

This artice is revealing the shocking rise in drink driving. Most drink drivers are not even aware of the alcohol limit, and many would say they have had enough that they could still drive, when they are very far over the limit to drink driving. 

Towrads the article advices poeple to stay safe while driving. Yet again another reliable article with valuable information and advice on staying safe, due to heavy consequences.

"Gender differences in smoking habits may explain why women find it more difficult to quit than men, according to a new study..."


Via Leona Ungerer
tayla brunker's insight:

This article proves to us that it is in fact more common for women to smoke then men,  that they use smoking as a option to release their stress and as for men its just used when at the pub and with friends.

In this shows that it is more of a challeng for women to quit smoking then men, due to the sensitivity as to why they started smoking to begin with.

The article also has other women revealing ways that they have tried to quit with no success and a way that others have used and found effective to quot smoking.
