It’s not only a career but people also lose their life by driving under the influence of alcohol. There is always news about this now and then. And the worst part, it is still increasing. “Alcohol is the trend and alcohol determines one’s lifestyle”- This what people are of the thought. The truth is, alcoholism is a disease, and it can be very, very hard for alcoholics to stop drinking. People are so addicted now that it is difficult for them to get away with drinking habits. Whenever if you ask people the reason about their drinking habits, they have all possible excuses
- To relieve stress
Our modern world is full of new strains and stresses that humans have never experienced in the past. People think drinking will solve all their problem. Some new drinkers may use alcohol as a way to escape or cope with problems. Alcohol may temporarily relieve stress and focus attention elsewhere, but the problems remain well after you stop drinking.
- To get good experience
People earlier drinking tell about the experience they get after drinking. To get that pleasurable experience they drink which lead them to get addicted. Thinking and expectation that alcohol will be fun and enjoyable which may actually cause a person to start drinking.
- Easily accessible
Alcohol is pretty easy to get anywhere, even for teens. Family and friends are the primary sources of alcohol for kids who drink, whether knowingly or unwillingly. Local alcohol retailers may also accept fake IDs for underage drinkers as they get their stock sold.
- Out of curiosity
People see family members, friends, role models or entertainers drinking alcohol. They think drinking is cool and it builds a curiosity. People may drink simply to experiment with alcohol and judge whether or not drinking is for them.
- Peer pressure
It is said that first glass of alcohol is not from your pocket. Friends or even family members play a role in initial alcohol use. Bullying for not drinking put youths to shame and force them to drink.
- To look grown up
Youths think that after reaching the adulthood, they have the license to drink and do whatever they want. They have that impression in mind “Hey, look at me, I’m all grown up now” which leads them to get into drinking.
People have plenty reason to drink unless they don’t know how it is harming them. Have a look at this image.
