While the people are more worried about the extension of the Lockdown period due to the sudden surge in COVID-19 positive numbers that happened due to the religious gathering that happened in Delhi, the alcohol addicts are not able to cope with the lifestyle they are adopting at this moment.
The government and the excise department made it clear that no liquor would be available in this 21-day lockdown period. The first few days passed quite calmly for the drunkards but after that, they aren’t able to survive the absence of alcohol in their region due to Lockdown.
Their body is used to alcohol every day in a certain period and their chemical balance will get disturbed if it wouldn’t meet the desired amount of ethanol in the body.
Liquor directly affects the Central Nervous system soon after the digestive system absorbs the amount of ethanol present in alcohol and without the daily quote of this chemical, the addicts will develop some psychic symptoms for sure.
Three men in Kerala have committed suicide after allegedly showing alcohol withdrawal symptoms within days after liquor stores shut the doors following the 21-day national lockdown.
Hence the governments of Kerala and Meghalaya decided to supply alcohol for the people who have doctor prescriptions confirming that they couldn’t cope with their life without alcohol.
