The pandemic has changed the social fabric of just about everyone around the world. While many may not have been hit directly, there have been many consequences that have impacted people in one way or the other. And one of the triggering factors of COVID has been alcoholism. And closer home, in Telangana, there has been an increase of 20-25% in cases who have turned alcoholic or have restarted drinking due to pressure.


Even the brave hearts say experts have taken to alcohol, unable to withstand the uncertainty that the pandemic has brought with it. According to one person who does not want to be named, he confesses that he returned to alcohol as he could not take the pressure. While he did reach out to his support group, he has been unable to kick off the habit completely, he says. Also, with everyone staying home, questions are raised, and he says that too pushes him to hit the bottle.


However, one factor that many of them tend to forget is the imminent risk of ending up COVID positive, as almost all of them have at least one co-morbidity. According to another chronic alcoholic, he feared for his life and feared contracting the virus that made him drink more. And he shares that his situation has come to a point where he ended up needing support from the Institute of Mental Health.


One other member of Alcoholics Anonymous (Andhra Pradesh and Telangana) says that the number of people turning to alcohol increased by 25%, and so have the cases of people wanting to get rid of the habit. He says one reason for many hitting the bottle is the absence of in-person meetings. Since the classes are now online, people can log in and get out of meetings as per their mood.
