Alcohol production and consumption have been in the life of mankind since centuries. Undoubtedly people of the present time are highly educated and mature enough to understand the damages of addictions. But despite being educated, we are still the slaves of addictions including alcoholism.
Alcoholism is a drug addiction in which a person becomes a habitual consumer of alcoholic liquor. Alcoholism affects as much as 67% of our country’s population. People drink both foreign and locally produced alcohol. Alcohol consumption is predominant in both rural and urban regions.
Drinking alcohol has no good for our society. The WHO body considers alcohol as the first drug which kills more people than other drugs in the world.
Some religions have done a great deal of job to ban drinking alcohol for its followers. Islam doesn’t permit Muslims to drink alcohol and that being the reason why more than 80% of the Muslim population doesn’t drink alcohol worldwide. It was banned in view of its severe harmful effects on the lives of people and societies.
Likewise, Christianity, the religion of Christian followers, even banned drinking alcohol but unfortunately, the message has a little impression on its followers. More than 80% of Christian followers drink alcohol.
Judaism, another Abrahamic religion doesn’t seem to be having any effect on its followers. Even though it has a clear message about alcohol, yet they drink it.
