Alcohol Awareness Week

👤 🕔 November 22, 2012 Comments Off on Alcohol Awareness Week

It’s been a great week with Drinking Time Machine being featured on an innovative new campaign by Leeds NHS www.corkersleeds.co.uk – just go to the website to meet the Corker family, mum, dad, Jack and Tia and click on the clock to have a go at DTM or go to the app store for free downloads! DTM will also be featured in campaigns by Alcohol Concern and Bath NHS.

We had an informative session with a group of Year 10’s, All Saint’s Academy in Cheltenham, Glos and their fantastic teacher Miss Ball. We discussed how people age and what excessive drinking can do to the skin….they were quite horrified to hear that a large glass of wine could be equal in calories to a Big Mac or slice of cake! On seeing herself aged 10 years with the effects of alcohol, Libby said it was a ‘wake up call’ and I think the DTM software got them all talking about alcohol. 88% of the pupils agreed that Drinking Time Machine would make them think about how much alcohol they drink in the future. The session was recorded by the Gloucestershire Echo and BBC Radio Glos. Thanks to All Saints for inviting us.

 

Drinking Time Machine in altn8 campaign

👤 🕔 September 11, 2012 Comments Off on Drinking Time Machine in altn8 campaign

HOW will you look in 10 years
time if you keep drinking to
high levels?
Health bosses in Blackpool are
hoping the latest weapon in the
ght against alcohol abuse will
help cut the numbers of those
who drink to excess once they
see how booze will age them.
The resort has 130 licensed
premises along and around the
Promenade alone, and gures show
more than 45,000 local residents
thats one in four drink above the
recommended levels.
About a fth are classed as
dependent drinkers.
And Blackpool has the highest
rates of alcohol-related deaths in
the country 1.3 a year per 1,000
people men, and 0.8 per 1,000 women.
Now chiefs at NHS Blackpool have
unveiled their latest plan to tackle
the problem, using Drinking Time
Machine software created by
Auriole Prince.
The time machine will feature
on the organisations altn8 campaign
website, and aims to show people the
visible damage boozing will do to
their face.
The user will simply upload a
photo of themselves to see what they
could look like after years of alcohol
consumption. It shows the visual
results, such as bloated ushed
cheeks and bloodshot eyes.
It is hoped the tool will appeal to
the vanity of younger people and help
deter them from drinking too much.
Steve Morton, alcohol lead for
public health, Blackpool, said: We
believe software like the Drinking
Time Machine will help us deal with
excessive alcohol consumption in
Blackpool.
It offers an opportunity to target
the younger age group.
Younger people are not normally
as concerned about their long-term
health, but are concerned by their
image, this software will help them
realise just how much they are
damaging their looks.
Alcohol is a major part of
Blackpool life, we are encouraging
people to be sensible and not drink
the amounts which can lead to
serious conditions.

the tool, log on to www.blackpool.

CMF works with charity ALCOHELP

👤 🕔 August 30, 2012 Comments Off on CMF works with charity ALCOHELP

Most of us are aware of the serious effect excessive alcohol consumption can have on our brain and liver to name a few, but how knowledgeable are we about the detrimental effect alcohol can have on our looks as we grow older? Would we be less inclined to consume as much alcohol if we could see our future selves? ChangeMyFace has been working with the charity ALCOHELP to be able to show school children the effects of alcohol on themselves.

Essex-based charity alcoHELP believes the answer is yes and have today launched the Change My Face Drinking Time Machine on its website.

Recovered alcoholic and founder of alcoHELP, Terry Martin, comments:

We have been looking for a way to highlight the aging effect of alcohol to the 12,000 Essex school-aged pupils we come into contact with each year. The Change My Face technology is perfect and enables the message to be passed to a much wider network of people through social network sites.

After all, in the image conscious society of today, actually seeing the physical impact alcohol can have on ourselves is a sobering and powerful vision.

Alcohol is notoriously dehydrating as it increases the rate at which the body excretes water and limits the absorption of nutrients vital for skin health and over time will create far deeper lines and more facial wrinkles than a non-drinker.

The complexion suffers too due to the restricted uptake of vitamins and minerals weakening the immune system and contributing heavily to the premature aging of the skin. This in turn leads to a dull, grey looking complexion lacking in radiance.

In addition, according to the British Association of Dermatologists, each half inch square of an average adults skin contains 3.2ft (1m) of tiny blood vessels. Alcohol dilates these small blood vessels, producing flushed, coarse skin and broken veins. Not a welcome look for anybody!

There is most definitely a need to educate young people in Essex on the aging effects of alcohol. After all, Essex Drug and Alcohol Partnerships January 2012 Alcohol Needs Assessment reported that in 2009/2010, 366,701 over 16 year olds in Essex took part in hazardous, harmful and dependent drinking with 73,000 0-15 year olds living with a binge drinking parent.

alcoHELPs trustees want todays children and young people to understand the risks associated with alcohol abuse so that they can make informed decisions based on evidence and facts.

The charity, which has been fortunate enough to work directly with 50,000 children, believes every young person should have access to information about the dangers of alcohol and the negative impact it can have.

Debby Peirson, co-founder of alcoHELP and recovered alcoholic, adds:

By including The Drinking Time Machine technology on our website I strongly believe that we will strike a chord with young people by allowing them to see how their face would look in 10 years time if they were to regularly consume alcohol.

Drinking Time Machine on BBC News

👤 🕔 June 26, 2012 Comments Off on Drinking Time Machine on BBC News

Drinking Time Machine hit the BBC news West Midlands tonight when Staffordshire police decided to reach a wider audience of young drinkers using DTM on their Facebook page. Staffs police feel that the visual tool will help people to see better the effects of alcohol on themselves therefore appealing to their vanity. Various police forces and NHS trusts are realising the need to send the message across in a new and exciting way that really hits home. Drinking Time Machine is a fun but educational tool which can be being used in a longer term strategy to try to shift the patterns in our drinking culture.
