Alcoholism is considered a vice because of the negative effects it brings about not only on the health but rather on the whole personality and worldview of a certain individual. It seems that during all the important events in an individual’s life, alcohol is always present. Some believe this is because alcohol, when consumed temporarily provides a respite from one’s current difficulties. For others, this is done more for social reasons, as alcohol tends to loosen up societal barriers. Hence, it allows imbibers a certain degree of freedom and enjoyment not normally possible. Still for some, alcohol is consumed for no reason at all. Regarding the issue of alcohol consumption, the continuous use of this substance may lead to different types of illnesses- ranging from liver complications to cancer and even to mental impairment.
