Is alcohol your slave or you? Find out if you are addicted to alcohol by answering 10 questions !!

 Manoj is a forty-year-old family man, a well-known chartered accountant.  Due to the ban on alcohol in our state, people do not consume alcohol in social life.  


But a lot of research says that Gujarat consumes as much alcohol as any other state or even more.  There is no domestic or foreign brand in Gujarat.  People who have the skills and reach know how to manage licenses.  Manojbhai has also arranged the license well.  So whenever he wants to party, he can do it officially.


 Manojbhai's wife comes to the psychiatrist and says that Manojbhai's alcohol consumption has increased a lot in the last two-and-a-half years.  But whenever someone from the family says something to him, his only answer is' Yes, I have a hobby..but I am not addicted to alcohol..I use alcohol..to manage stress..not alcohol.  '  What to do now?

 Alcoholism is one of the major evils and challenges of our society.  A person who is addicted to alcohol must first feel that he is addicted.  This step is called intervention.  In the intervention, all the loved ones have to come together and lovingly and calmly tell the person that alcohol consumption is increasing and this has a detrimental effect on their health and the lives of their loved ones and 'we are very worried about you.'


 Mind: Addiction to alcohol or anything is the same disease as diabetes or hypertension.  It is very important to treat it correctly and scientifically.  We must stay away from misconceptions and hypocrites.
