Today I am going to discuss about Alcoholism its effects and  few homoeopathic medicines which when used depending upon symptom similarity according to law of similia similibus gives excellent results in overcoming habits of alcohol .

First of all what is alcoholism ?

Drinking alcohol sometime as a relaxation purpose does not have any harmful effects. It is also seen that people or even doctors recommend to have some while going to some extreme cold place during that time it really acts as a medicine to overcome the cold. But when this sometime fun and amusement of drinking turns to daily basis it not only affects the drinker but also to his family and surrounding gets affected by the drinkers habits.
It not only makes the drinker bad and regarded as unwanted element in the society but it may turn to some very harmful social activity. Tough the person may be well behaved and nice person when he is not under the influence of alcohol but when the same person takes alcohol then that person becomes completely different person.
we need to understand the main fact or cause which leads the person to become dependent on the alcohol and try to remove that person out from the illusion world and show that person the mirror to the enlighten their life.
Some of the causes which tend to alcoholism are as follows.
1) Hereditary/ genetics: some genes cause individuals to be more prone to use abusive substances like alcohol which tends to run in families.
2)Psychological :- some people are in wrong impression that if they take alcohol it will give relief to their   emotional disturbances or have some problems on personal and professional life. But they do not realize that by doing such kind of activity they are welcoming new problems and also their personality and relations are getting destroyed. When a person is  under the effect of alcohol he will be hallucinated and do not know what he is speaking and with to whom they are speaking . It creates lots of hypes and tension in family also as drunk person is careless about their relations as they find amusement and fun in drinking.As they think that by drinking they gets relief from their tension but in reality they plunge into the sea which never takes them to shore.
