Debate on Responsible Drinking: Mental Fortitude vs. Limit Awareness- Advocates for responsible drinking highlight that many struggling with alcohol abuse face challenges in mental fortitude. However, critics argue that simply knowing one’s limit might not suffice. Local experts have entered the discourse, shedding light on the true essence of responsible drinking. Dr. Shane Alexis, a general practitioner, contends that a lack of discipline is prevalent among most alcoholics, while some individuals may genuinely be unaware of their limits. On the other hand, Sarah Templeton, a counselor and substance abuse specialist at Rise Life Management, emphasizes that responsible alcohol consumption is a personal and relative concept. Templeton dismisses the idea that knowing one’s limit is a realistic approach and suggests leveraging scientific knowledge and facts instead of promoting responsible drinking habits
