I am from a newer community. Therefore, drinking was kind of family tradition. As I was aging my habit of drinking did escalate and later on I was completely stuck into it. I then started being violent while drunk. I would get angry too often. My wife and children became the victim of my abuse. I picked up fights and was sometimes hospitalized being severely beaten. I was nearly divorced because of these consequences of alcohol.
As I am living a happy life, I have realized that the excuse of family tradition or culture did lead me towards the consumption of excess alcohol. Therefore, I have already committed that from now onward I'll avoid all those cultural programs held on within my community.
