Q-12:   My elder sister is a primary school teacher in government sector. Her husband is an alcohol user. He quarrels and uses abusive language after drinking. Last week, he argued with her after having drinking. My sister was also continuously arguing with him. He tried to beat her with chair but her daughter rushed to rescue her. Then, my elder brother, living near to her home, came and tried to calm down her husband. He also made him realize about his behavior. Her children were afraid of that situation and my sister was weeping. Her husband provides all amenities to my sister and her children. She has no financial or any other problem except his alcoholic behavior. My brother-in-law also takes care of me and my other siblings when he comes to his senses. Only trouble is his alcoholic behavior. How could that problem be solved? Farhat-Karachi

A-Dear Farhat, you suggest your sister not to argue with her husband while he is drinking. Alcohol diminishes the sense of right and wrong. In alcoholic state, he can severely harm your sister, children and himself. It is very risky to argue the person having drinking. It is better to avoid him instead of arguing. In a normal position, you and your family try to convince him for getting treatment. If he is very caring for your whole family, then he will definitely consider your suggestion. Try to show him dangerous side of using alcohol, the way it may harm his health, wife and children. DFN
