Giving up addiction is a matter of simple understanding, which is achieved by Self realization (who am I). Nowadays, many are suffering from this addiction, either of smoking, drinking, etc. Addiction is just a temporary feeling of detachment from sorrow, which later causes more sorrow both physical and mental. Hence it is important for them to realize what life is, what is the true happiness of life, how can this precious life be lived.
So here is a story of someone who emailed us about his son who was suffering from addiction, asking for help and advice.
I have a son who’s age is about 32 yrs but his doings are just like a boy of 18 yrs. He use to drink wine every day and do nothing even he discontinued to go office where he doing job . He use to quarrel with his mom when he is drunk . I tried to correct his wrong doing with friendly manner but in vain. Pl suggest me how make him correct.
