Are you ready to quit drinking? There is no such thing as
cutting down to a healthier level, because addiction can never
in any level be healthier.
You can bring change any time and have not to wait until anything untoward happens. Alcoholism always comes with some major hazards.
Consuming alcohol is not a novel practice and has been there for millions of years around the world. There are sutras in Vedas that mentioned swilling of Sura, Madya or Madira (alcohol) by people on special occasions.
Alcohol has been consumed for centuries to enhance sociability, as a getaway to problems, for enjoyment, to enhance power, and for ritualistic purpose.
People drink for various reasons such as to socialize, to celebrate, to forget bitter moments and sometimes people even drink to muster courage to face a difficult situation.
