The need for the appearance of National Sober Day became acute in the 20th century, when the idea of a sober lifestyle was already actively promoted in society. There have been many studies that confirmed the harmful effects of ethyl alcohol on the body.
Alcohol is one of the most popular and affordable substances that allows you to get pleasure. Its history goes back thousands of years. The production of alcoholic beverages was still in the Ancient World. They were mainly used as medicines (they had an antiseptic and analgesic effect), and also acted as a ritual object. In the Middle Ages, medicinal use was even more firmly established.
The first country that decided to resist alcohol was America. Prohibition, adopted in the 19th century, prohibited the production of alcoholic beverages, but due to the growth of illegal trade, it had to be abolished.
Actively developing medicine conveyed to society the consequences of alcoholism. Sobriety was promoted in newspapers, on television and radio. However, the problem has not disappeared. According to statistics, almost 90 thousand people die from alcohol every year in America, and drunk driving is the cause of half of all accidents.
