Quitting alcohol for the month of July for some people might not be a very smart idea.

Some people sometimes give up booze during the summer. This can be known as doing “Dry July” or “Sober Summer.” I’ll never understand it, but some people do it. (SLIDESHOW: These Women On Instagram Hate Wearing Clothes)

However, it might not be wise. The Daily Mail wrote the following:

Addiction specialist Dr Christian Rowan has particular concerns for those who are used to consuming large amounts of alcohol on a regular basis.

‘The body can develop a physical dependency to alcohol, in which it has adapted to regularly having high concentrations of alcohol in the blood,’ Dr Rowan said.

In some instances, going ‘cold turkey’ can be fatal, as the body struggles to cope, Dr Rowan said.

Even if there was a 1% chance of death or a negative outcome, I just can’t do it. Can’t risk it! I have too much to live for. (SLIDESHOW: 71 Times Samantha Hoopes Stripped Down)

Now, I must carry the burden of alcohol, drinking during the summer, enjoying the sunshine with a cold beer and hot women, and I don’t have much of a choice. (SLIDESHOW: This Blonde Bombshell Might Be The Hottest Model On The Internet)

I’m no longer doing this for me. I’m doing it for all of you and those who never got a shot to get to the top. If I give up drinking and die (highly unlikely), then all this could fall apart. That’s just not a scenario I’m willing to watch unfold. (SLIDESHOW: 60 Times Abigail Ratchford Wore Almost Nothing)

So, that means I better keep the fridge stocked. After all, our lives might now depend on it.

So, plan that party, grab your beer and enjoy the summer. Here I was preparing to cut back a shade, and now I’m being led to believe that the future of this country rides on my survival.

Remember, I’m not drinking that beer at the pool for me. I’m doing it for you. You don’t need to say thank you. Just recognize the sacrifices I’ll be making this summer.
