Nizamabad: DLSA secretary and senior Judge Kiranmayi urged the youth not to get habituated to drinking and not to ruin their golden future.
Nehru Yuva Kendra Sangathan (NYKS), Nizamabad, an autonomous organisation under Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports, and District Legal Services Authority (DLSA) had jointly organised district level de-addiction campaign at Indian Medical Association meeting hall here on Wednesday.
District Senior Civil Judge Kiranmayi, the guest of honour, said drug addiction hampers career growth. But it is sad that from children to adults are taking drugs, particularly youth are slowly getting addicted to alcohol, who starts drinking alcohol for fun initially.
She advised the parents not to consume alcohol in front of their children, who may think that there was nothing wrong in drinking liquor as their parents are doing the same. Kiranmayi said that many people say that they are drinking to forget their problems or to overcome them, but it is not true.
One should find solutions to the problems and there is no use in drinking alcohol. Moreover, drinking makes people unhealthy, she added.
Psychiatrist Dr Vishal said that more and more youth are taking drinks or drugs for relaxation and enjoyment and getting addicted to cigarettes, gutka and drugs and spoiling their health. Narcotic substances will make people depress, he added.
Excise Superintendent Naveen Chandra, IMA district president Dr Kavitha Reddy, Nehru Youth Centre coordinator Tulasi, ICPS officer Chaitanya Kumar, CWC member Narasimham and others were present.
