Alcohol – The Devil

SHERIN JINSON

It is really disheartening to see the number of youngsters getting admitted at Cadabam’s for de-addiction. And most of them between the age groups of 18 – 30 yrs. These are the years in life when the parents expect the most from their children, period when they complete their studies and try to stand on their own feet. It’s the time most of the parents eagerly wait for, after doing their duty of providing their child the best they can. It’s the child’s turn to fulfill his/ her parents dream. Who is the most unlucky person in this? Is it the parents who are not lucky enough to see their dream come true or is it the child who is not lucky to fulfill their parents?

Family usually takes time to accept the fact that their dream has been shattered. Once they accept it they may go through turmoil of emotion like guilt, regret, sadness etc. They may also start playing the blame game. After all this they come to a point where they accept that they cannot do anything to change the fact and start looking for help to save there dear ones from this. One of the most touching lines I got to hear from a mother who had come for enquiry at Cadabam’s is, “all my friends are searching the right medical college or a proper engineering college for their kids while me and my husband are in search of right rehabilitation center for my son”.

Alcoholism or addiction is considered as a curse to the society. But as a society what are we doing to help a person who really wants to come out of this and start a new life? Speaking decisively, one needs a lot of will power, ascertaining as to how far we go to achieve this goal. The numerous bars found in every nook and corner, both licensed and unlicensed leave very little room to accommodate a changing swerve in society.

It is true to alcoholism is a curse to society; fortunately it is a curse with a cure.
