ABSTRACT:
Background: Alcohol has been used for centuries to obtain relief from discomfort and tension. It is very difficult to draw a line of demarcation between drinking of alcohol as a social habit or as a medical problem. Loosely a person should be considered alcoholic, if his / her drink interferes with her/his physical and mental health as well as his/her social and economic life. Objective: To assess the epidemiological profile of alcoholics. Nature of study: it was an retrospective study Material and method: The data was collected from the sampled cases in a pre drawn ,pre tested questionnaire Variables:Age,sex,their diet pattern, smoking habit,B.M.I.,random Blood Sugar level and Blood Pressure etc..Stastistical analysis: were expressed in simple terms of proportion Findings and interpretation: it has been revealed that majority of alcoholics were adolescents. 96 % Alcoholics were also indulging in the habit of smoking and the rest 4 % found non-smokers.100.0 percentage Alcoholics were non-vegetarian. 96 % Alcoholics were also indulging in the habit of smoking. Only 12.0 % diabetic alcoholics were in the normal range as per B.M.I. in comparison to 24.0 % non-diabetic. 36.0 % and 12.0 % belong to Group-II and Group-III respectively as per R.B.S. level. Conclusion: There were dual addiction in most of the alcoholics, which is very dangerous for their health though both addiction (alcohol and tobacco), are modifiable risk factor.
