Why consuming alcohol is considered bad in Indian families?

Posted by Kiran Mallikarjun 0 Comments

In Indian families, alcohol consumption is often viewed negatively due to a mix of religious beliefs, cultural norms, and health concerns. Many Indian religions, like Hinduism and Islam, discourage or outright prohibit alcohol due to its intoxicating effects. Culturally, excessive drinking is seen as a sign of a lack of self-control and discipline. There's also a strong awareness about the health risks linked to alcohol abuse such as liver disease and mental health issues. Lastly, the impact of alcoholism on family life and society, including domestic violence and financial instability, is another serious concern.
