RATIONALE Currently alcoholism and alcoholics are increasing day by day and now every country should take account for it as more youth are engaged in such situation. PURPOSE Main aim beyond such study is to spread awareness among population how big this is and how big it could be if not taken account. METHODS Scientific literature analysis. RESULTS Current studies show that every third person is engaged in the swamp of alcoholism. According to the study India was consuming 2.5 liters of alcohol in 2005 which almost doubled in 2010 [1]. Another study showed that about 3 million people died in India only in the year of 2016 because of harmful effects of alcohol consumption. In July 2009 around 150 people were found dead in Gujarat (India) due to consumption of methanol instead of ethanol. Consumption of alcohol results not only in health problems but it effects on social and marriage life too. According to the survey around 30 to 40 percent of divorces among couples are due to addiction to different products, among which alcohol holds the biggest number of divorce cases [2]. Another such study also showed the increased rape cases were also due to heavy alcohol consumption where the culprits are not awarded of their action and they ended up committing such a crime. Another upcoming problem is among the youth where they are more prone to alcoholism and ended up ruining their career and family life. Another problem with alcoholism is increasing debt over people which manipulate them to engage in crimes like robbery, kidnapping etc. One more problem with alcoholism is increasing impotence among the young guys and infertility among young women [3]. Incidence of cancer has also dramatically increased of which most common are of mouth, oesophagus, stomach. According to the study among all cases of cancer about 17 to 19 percent are engaged with alcohol consumption. CONCLUSION Don’t drink alcohol and stop others from doing the same because it would leave you with nothing. It is a short time pleaser with long lasting damages.
