We all want to have a good time and be the life of the party but when we exceed our limitations and start mixing alcohols, we end up paying for it later. It's best to pace yourself and set a limit for the amount of alcohol you plan to consume. You can still have a good time without going overboard.
A friendly reminder from
Lou Figueroa - Inspirational Speaker and Founder of Guard Your Drink
Growing up in Southern California before moving to Colorado with his family in 1991, Lou Figueroa was an avid snowboarder and mountain biker who enjoyed the outdoors.
At the age of 27 while out with a group of friends in the downtown district of Denver, Lou encountered a beverage that was laced with an unknown substance becoming lost and disoriented. He walked nearly a mile before he was found lying in the Union Station rail yard. In the early hours of the morning a train was approaching the rail yard and saw Lou’s body at the last minute. The result would be the loss of both legs. After surviving a week long coma gripping to life, Lou awoke in the hospital.
Since his amputations, Lou has traveled across the globe sharing messages of hope and inspiration to hundreds of audiences including trade associations, chambers of commerce and universities.
Today, Lou lives in Los Angeles where he advocates for drink safety in social settings and alcohol awareness.
