The use of alcohol by mankind has been reported throughout history in most civilizations. The social approval to alcohol use has varied from strong disapproval to being actively encouraged. Research has contributed substantially to our understanding of the relation of drinking to specific disorders and it has been proclaimed that alcohol consumption works as a catalyst to human health deterioration. In India, alcohol dependence have been recognized to have a significant impact on public health and in different facets of life only very recently. There are various practices and measures adopted by the government and NGOs to control the consumption of alcohol and get riddance from its addiction. However, these policies have been unsatisfactory to stop the excessive use of alcohol. The current review paper thus intends to analyze the effectiveness of self-improvement programs that focus on reducing alcoholism in the society. The best initiative that can be taken against this war with substance use would be to motivate and encourage people to stop abusing and exploiting the consumption of alcohol, and that would be possible only if people are aware of the side effects of this beverage. This paper proposes the dire need to consider alcohol dependence as a social determinant of health and implement strict laws that can spread awareness of alcoholic abuse among illiterate people to stop the substance exploitation.
