🍾Is Alcohol Abuse on the Increase?

Alcohol abuse is on the rise it seems. Since the outbreak of Covid19, and the subsequent lockdown, many people resorted to drinking alcohol. This used to happen here in the city where I stay. Probably you have seen it in communities around where you stayed. I think Covid19 outbreak and what happened there after, contributed a lot to alcohol abuse. Many people used to lock themselves in houses as early as 9am and drink till night because they were rendered redundant. This resulted in kind of alcohol abuse where by people took in too much. After that, when the lockdowns were lifted, some people found themselves in that drinking mode.😥 Do you think the current rise in alcohol abuse is due to Covid19 and the subsequent lockdown? What is your opinion?

I dont think COVID has helped as so many people are looking for an escape. The problem isnt helped by how cheap alcohol is though and in some cases it as cheap as soft drinks.

The restaurant, hotels, and bars clossure made a little bit a barrier for many alcoholic person. The lock down period has contributed to the decrease the number of alcoholic person or diminish their dose, because alcohol was unavailable for them.

Leno. In my country, it’s a different senario. During lockdown period, too much alcohol was consumed and figures show this. People spent time from morning to evening on drinking spree but in their homes. Beer production was not stopped and trailers kept ferrying gallons and gallons of beer into the market.

Hummm, Mr Jackson things was very different here, first it’s a Muslim community, most people are Muslim, they don’t drink alcohol, so the rules were followed strictly and people were also very afraid.

Yes Leno, I understand what is there, being a strict Moslem country. I know alcoholic drinks are banned.
