Say no to Alcohol.....

Balanov was amongst the richest man in western Moscow.He was rich enough to satisfy all his needs and his wants and all that his heart desired.He was a stakeholder in Moscow telecoms.His wife and his two daughters were proud of him.He started working since he was 15 years old owing to poverty.He was the only son to his parents.Since, he started working from a very young age,he was deprived of basic education.During those days to freed himself from family tensions ,he started drinking liquor.Now,he is 45 and is addicted to alcohol.Although he was rich, he had his own personal problems.

The economic crisis had badly affected the European markets as well.As a result of this Lehman bro, Merylynch, ING Vysya had suffered great losses.Moscow Telecom was on the verge of a collaspe.He lost all his wealth in the event of regaining his company.The company was shut down.He could feel the pressure and his alcohol consumption increased.He started hating his wife and children.Few days later ,the Russian bank seized his house and froze his accounts.He was forced to live in streets.Now ,the king became a pauper in less than one days time.Now, he never cared for everyone.He purchased bottles of Whisky,Vodka and Rum everyday and drank it at once.

Few days later he had no money left with him.He forced his wife and children to work and get him liquor everyday.The Economic crisis had badly affected him.He went to depression.Now all that he wanted was alcohol.He wanted Whisky and Rum."Whiskyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!," he screeched .
The wife and his children were helpless and could not see their loved one in pain.
One day,he was left alone in his new home.He could not find the bottle anywhere in his house.He didn't had enough money to get himself a drink.Now he was addicted very badly and he was unaware of what was happening around him.He was busy searching for few Rubles.A bottle of Whisky would cost him 155 Rubles ,but he just had 16 Roubles with him.He eventually turned on to be a chronic drinker

His eyes grabbed attention of a perfume bottle that was lying on the table.He checked for the contents and soon spotted 68% Alcohol written on the perfume cap.He removed the lid and consumed entire bottle.

He was addicted to such an extent that he failed to understand difference between alcohol and alcohol in perfume with different contents.Few minutes later he could feel the effects.He could feel the burning sensation of his lungs.He was already suffering from Liver Cirrhosis due to excessive consumption of alcohol.He slept for a while and within no time he gave his life.

Alcohol consumption means consumption of liqour in the form of Vodka,Rum,Whisky,Brandy etc.Alcohol addiction is a type of addiction that will not only affect you by creating various disorders,but also affects your family.Alcohol is not the only solution to it.

Balonov coudn't resist and hence he consumed the perfume bottle.

Pour in your views?? I am waiting to hear it from you.


  1. Alcohol consumption is the worse kind of addiction. Not only does it affect yourself but also your family and those around you.

    People take these things so lightly...Im glad you wrote about it!:)

  2. Booze is so easily available. I know its addiction is one of the worst one could ever have! And Rashi is correct. It affects the family really badly. I can never forget my mom's eyes the day when she sent me to the rehab.

    It was nostalgic reading your post...

  3. alcohol, cigrettes, gutkha, drugs are slow poisons... not only do they destroy you physically.. but they destroy you and your family mentally and emotionally too... what starts as a 'casual' puff may end up as an addiction for life and ruin your life...

    thanks for writing this eye-opener stephen... hope many take inspiration from this post of yours and quit before its too late!!!...

    hoping to have and alcohol and cigrette free world some day.. !!! keep writing!!

  5. Hi Ste..
    Addiction to any thing can be dangerous (at various degrees and levels of danger).. Why just drugs and alcohol?? For some it could be tea or coffee… for other it could be the compulsion to read or write some thing…some are addicted to people, who when leave take a substantial part of you along with them…
    Sorry, just felt like bringing it to your notice….
    Good writing

    Say No To Alcohol. I do not drink much. So, please dont scold me. I did not drink from one day in August (1 Beer) till December 25. I drank Rum on 25th, 26th, 27th and 28th December and could finish only half a bottle. Will finish it this weekend! I hope you will excuse me for this. See, I have already left cig now ... no cigs since Dec 13th 2008.

    >> Shows you do not know about alcohol or you do not drink (Keep it up, if I'm correct) lol!

    He went to depression.Now all that he wanted was alcohol.He wanted Whisky and Rum."Whiskyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!," he screeched .
    >> A person in Moscow will scream "Vodkaaaaaaaa" more likely. But Balanov had a strange urge of Whisky, I see ... good good ... My friend, Balanov.

    On a serious note, Say No To Alcohol and Smoking.
