A warning to the men of St. Kitts and Nevis on smoking and the consumption of alcohol.
“We have to pull back on the alcohol consumption. We have to break this really ridiculous notion that the more we drink the more of a man we are. Nothing looks less macho than a drunk of tipsy male. Let us try really hard to remember that ““ not only because of the way being intoxicated makes one look, but also because of the serious damage alcohol inflicts on the liver, and the very irresponsible and sometimes shameful behavior that alcohol causes one to engage in,” said St. Kitts and Nevis’ Prime Minister Hon. Dr. Denzil L. Douglas during his weekly radio programme “Ask the Prime Minister.”
Prime Minister Douglas, a medical doctor, also warned about smoking.
“Smoking too has a straight, unquestionable link to cancer. We should all help the smokers we know to find programmes that would help them to stop. And we should all ensure that those we know who do not smoke, never start,” said the Prime Minister during his call in programme which is syndicated simultaneously on six radio stations ““ ZIZ Radio, KYSS-FM, Sugar City Roc, ZIZ-Radio, Freedom FM and Radio One on St. Kitts and Choice FM on Nevis.
