The devastating effects of drinking in Indian families and society.

As a scheduled tribe community person which are traditionally used to drinking homemade wine, I am very much aware and seen the devastating effects of Alcohol on the families and society. It is a menace to the society as it is the sole cause of other horrendous crimes like rape and murder. As we can see the rapid increase in these crimes the majority of these were done after the consumption of alcohol.

Alcohol prohibition in IndiaAlcohol prohibition in India is in force in the states of Gujarat, Kerala, Bihar, Nagaland, and Manipur; as well as in the Union Territory of Lakshadweep. We can compare these states with the other states where alcohol is not prohibited. We will find that the percentage of crimes are much less in the alcohol prohibited states. They earn rather more revenue from other sources like consumer products, milk, and other things then they used to get from the alcohol licensing. So, it is clear the booze is costing us. As the most of the man face the illness of cancer of the liver because of over drinking. THink carefully how much money we have to pay for the price of drinking.


Because of drinking, the families shattered, their life became hopeless. When a person in the family is addicted to accessive drinking then it is the duty of the parents to look after him and bring to everything for them. This is a true story of a man who used to over drinking. He daily drinks and forgets the duty of his towards the family members. After ten years the doctors have found that he is in the last stage of liver cancer. The doctors could do nothing other than telling the patients to go home till he dies. No, doctors are not God and they could do nothing in this instance. He died and his family becomes helpless as he was the only one earner and he has saved nothing because of this habit of drinking. He his family came into deep trouble economically and mentally.
