Liquor – Life at the edge

I don’t know how to begin... No I have no idea about trying the booze but certain things make concern about the risk factor involved in it. Obviously liquor has been an anti-social element for long taking away precious lives of many and putting families at sorrow; seems never to come to a conclusion only to rise in percentage. 

The liquor has sent people to the edge of life, everyday taking risk at their loss of conscious on streets by knocking others or knocked by others... the damage is mostly for others who face an unexpected odd behavior on road. I want to write about the drunkards for some time now and need to condemn the media esp. the film industry promoting the liquor thought its many super hitting songs and sequence.  Those who really want to leave the liquor are impossible to continue as each scene, song and drama watched through television remind them to acquire the liquor.

I was out into the city two nights ago… on one hand it was heavy traffic and construction of metro rail and unruly drivers, and the other was the drunkards whom we suppose to encounter at twice brim. We were at sudden jerk but they are cool and casual at crossing road or wrong turning and we couldn’t blame them since they are not in their control.

Partially they bear their cost of life at lost and certainly the government does its best supporting part leaving not to depress their customers, and getting money from themselves to develop their infrastructure and free rice, education and shoes on their pledge of life. What the government earns through liquor shops is higher most among its income and the cause of liquor sold keeps the risk factor at the brim that cost a mass destruction on health, wealth and peace of the immense families.

I wish the government seeks an alternative source of income better than liquor and open rehabilitation centers in each location on the place of liquor shop to treat those addicted and only by bringing change in mind we could remove the boozing habit or the illegal liquor shop would grow at any hideout, which is endanger.  The drunkards have been increased contemporary as per liquors sold rose… it feels shame that our country or state develops on destructing a part to it to aid another.

Great post, Jeevan. I agree with you. Personally I don't drink alcohol at all. A small glass of wine once in a while is one thing and perfectly fine, but people don't seem to be able to control their intake, thus endangering not only their own lives but the lives of others.

alcoholism is a serious disease. drunk driving often has terrible consequences - so often other people suffer for someone else's lapse in judgement. i drink alcohol, but do not overindulge.

This is an excellent post, and I agree with you. Not only are governments raising income through liquor, many states over here are raising money through gambling. Unfortunately the people who gamble the most are the ones who can least afford to do so.

Nice post, Jeevan. I agree with you. I have a glass occasinally, not much.

Good post. However, I would go one step forward to say that it is not the object that causes as much damage as the factor of control in a person!

Drinking has always been hazardous. But, people never learn.

eden said...

It is true. Drink driving is one of the main causes of road accidents here.

It needs self control not to drink. People are taking it as fun...

Better avenues than liquor should be looked at by the government than sale of liquor in kiosks!

Everything beyond a limit is harmful. Addiction is what one should stay away from..and for that self control is required. Good post :)

A nice post on the eternal problems of men, here .
I can understand your anguish, and helplessness. Money is the cause here for the govt, to look the other way , in case of liquor. For whom , is the govt, working , if they cant let their citizen live in peace?

Just because it gets them extra taxes,( which goes into unnecessary spending), they let this poison ruin the families.
