Many people believe that drinking alcohol can get rid of grief. But in fact, in this way, these people admit defeat and weakness in comparison to the hardships and hardships of life and kneel before the inappropriate hardships of life.

Whenever the terrible sound of unfavorable conditions and difficult life hits their ears, they start taking refuge in alcohol so that they can get peace for a while from these sorrows of life. These pretexts, on the basis of which a person is inclined towards debauchery, cannot justify the consumption of alcohol. The existence of jam and alcohol is the proof that the society is sick and it is a deadly disease that cannot be solved without complete treatment. Collide with other objects. Which results in madness and disease. The prevalence of alcoholism has alarmed the leaders and intellectuals of society, and many associations have been formed to combat it, but the treatment of such deadly diseases is not the sole concern of such associations, as there is a danger that the dynamic and young segment may turn into alcoholics. The following figure is one of the shining examples of misfortune.

According to an investigation by the Physicists of the International Twenty-Fourth Conference, alcohol in France affected the following people: 20 percent of women and 60 percent of men admitted to hospitals were addicted to alcohol. 70% of mental and 40% of patients were alcoholic. According to England’s Investigative Committee, 95% of people suffering from mental illness are addicted to alcohol. When the French Minister of Health published the number of deaths from alcohol, the newspapers said that this number was shocking. In this broadcast, it was reported that excessive consumption of alcohol was leading to an increase in deaths and the death toll was 20,000. The chairman of the International Committee on Alcohol said that 25 percent of car accidents and 57 percent of motorcycle accidents in France are the result of excessive alcohol consumption.

In 1870, the loss of life and property as a result of alcohol consumption was more than the losses caused by this war. For those who take alcohol as a pleasure and pleasure, it is a poison to them. It makes them age prematurely. It destroys half of their life, their bodies are constantly attacked by weaknesses and diseases. In French hospitals, 40 percent of illnesses are attributed to alcohol consumption. 50% of mental patients in nursing homes suffer from mental illness due to the use of narcotic substances. In children’s hospitals in France, 50 percent of children’s illnesses are due to their parents’ alcohol addiction. 60% of French court costs are related to alcohol. French government coffers cost hospitals, nursing homes, banks 325 euros a year due to alcohol consumption. Alcoholism causes many human deaths. 55% of deaths in men and 30% in women are due to alcohol consumption.

95% of child killers are addicted to alcohol. 60% of dysfunctional youth are born to alcoholic parents. An investigative committee of special representatives of various countries announced that, economically, the consequences of alcohol are also dangerous, research has shown that (in addition to personal losses) it costs the government 128 euros. Thus, 10 Euros are spent on hospitals, 40 Euros on cooperation, 60 Euros on courts and prisons, 17 Euros on police, and 11 Euros on the government treasury, which is reduced by consumption of raw grapes and alcohol.

This move has been made to address the effects of growing alcoholism in Russia. According to a report, alcohol consumption is more harmful than heroin. Among the authors of the report is Professor Davidant, who was sacked by the government in October 2009.

The report mentions the harms of twenty types of drug use. In which the harms of tobacco and cocaine are exactly the same. While the disadvantages of STC and LSD are relatively less than them. Professor Nutt did not stop working on the subject of drugs even after he was dismissed from his official position. He formed an independent scientific committee on drugs, which assessed the physical and mental harms of all types of drugs, as well as their effects on addiction, related crime, and the economy. After research it was revealed that heroin, cocaine and methyl Amphines are very harmful to humans. But alcohol is more dangerous than heroin and cocaine. When the harms from both types of addiction were combined, the greatest harms came from alcohol, followed by heroin and cocaine. Current scientific and medical discoveries have revealed so many harms of alcohol that even a drop of it seems to be poison.

The properties of refreshing, cold and cold-preventing wine are only imaginary. The fact is that drinking alcohol weakens the entire defense system of the body. Stomach, kidney and brain cells get swollen due to which various dangerous diseases emerge. Liver becomes affected to the extent that it stops functioning, which is called liver cirrhosis. It is mostly fatal. Apart from nervous tension, alcohol consumption also causes sexual impotence. It is not possible to control heart and lung diseases with drugs unless the patient completely stops drinking alcohol. Like other addictive substances, alcohol also has the potential to make a person addicted to it. People addicted to it are called alcoholics. Which according to current medical science is a deadly disease just like hashish and so on. Alcoholism is a primary, chronic, progressive and fatal disease, but many people do not recognize it as a disease and die from it.

Alcoholism is permanent, which means that a person cannot use alcohol again after treatment. In this disease, a metabolic error occurs, due to which toxins are produced in the body after drinking alcohol, which causes the demand and when it is not met, various symptoms such as anger, anxiety and panic appear. Alcoholism makes a person hollow inside. A person’s ability to think and understand is affected and he is not able to make correct decisions. Such a patient needs full treatment and full care and attention in the treatment. During the treatment, the patient is given complete information regarding the disease and complete training regarding the prevention of the disease because the disease cannot be completely cured but it can be managed for which the knowledge about the disease is given. It is very important that the patient can lead a normal life after full awareness and training about this disease. Just as diabetes has to be managed for the rest of your life, alcoholism has to be managed for the rest of your life, which is only possible with complete treatment.
