Healthy lifestyle & Alcohol


According to the opinion of many expert doctors Moderate use of alcohol has possible health benefits, but it's not risk-free. According to the latest guidelines on diet it is clear that no one should start drinking or drink more often on basis of potential health. Alcohol consumption is never considered good, still many of us enjoy drinking with friends and family. Apart from the many health issues, drinking and driving is considered a dangerous trend. But should you worry about driving the next morning after drinking the night before? And the answer depends on your body that  how fast it is able to metabolise alcohol. Most people can break down half a drink every hour. Like if you drank 0.08 litre of alcohol (80 milliliters) and stop there, in two and half hours only 0.05 litre of alcohol will be left in your system.

Many people have a hard time distinguishing when their normal drinking becomes problem drinking. How do we know that how much is too much, particularly when a small to moderate amount of alcohol might be good for you? 

Experts use many terms to describe different types of drinking problems. We will describe the terms alcohol intoxication, alcohol use disorder, problem drinking and binge drinking.

Intoxication Alcohol  — Alcohol intoxication occurs at the time when drinking excess alcohol leads to inappropriate behavior and impaired judgment. Being intoxicated can cause slurred speech, loss of coordination,  unsteady walking or running, difficulty paying attention or remembering, confusion, or coma.


Alcohol use disorder — Alcohol use disorder is the medical term for alcohol addiction or what most people think of as alcoholism. Alcohol use disorder can be mild to severe. People who have the disorder have two or more of the following problems. The more of these they have, the more severe their disorder.  

They wish they could cut down on alcohol, but they can’t.
They spend a lot of time trying to get alcohol, getting drunk, or recovering from being drunk
They crave or have a strong desire or urge to drink.
They ends up drinking more than they planned to.
Due to their alcohol use, they often unable to do the things those were expected of them, such as go to work or school, remember family events, and clean their home etc.
They stop on important social, work, or fun activities they used to do.
They keep drinking even in situations where it is dangerous to do so 
They keep drinking even when they know they have a physical or mental problem that was probably caused or made worse by their alcohol use.
They need to drink more and more to get the same effects they used to get with less use. Or they get less effect from using the amount that used to get them drunk. This is called “tolerance.”

Generally, drinking is considered a problem when it starts to adversely affect a person's personal and professional life, Many people successfully overcome drinking problems on their own. However, people with alcohol dependence should not attempt to cut down or stop drinking without the help of a healthcare provider. Sudden reducing use of alcohol can cause life-threatening withdrawal symptoms. Medical supervision is an compulsory part of safe recovery in this group.

भारत में शिक्षा का इतिहास आरम्भिक समय में लगभग आठवीं शताब्दी ईसा पूर्व से ही भारत में उच्च शिक्षा का सबसे पहला केंद्र तक्षशिला(आधुनिक पकिस्तान में स्थित) माना जाता है, और यह तर्क का विषय है कि क्या इसे मॉडर्न अर्थों में विश्वविद्यालय माना जा सकता है? क्योंकि यहां पर रहने वाले अध्यापक आधिकारिक नहीं हो सकते थे। विशेष कॉलेजों की सदस्यता एवं बाद में नालंदा विश्वविद्यालय के मुकाबले तक्षशिला में उद्देश्य से निर्मित व्याख्यान हॉल और आवासीय क्वार्टरों का अस्तित्व नहीं था। नालंदा विश्वविद्यालय के आधुनिक अर्थों में दुनिया में शिक्षा का सबसे पुराना विश्वविद्यालय-तंत्र था तथा वहाँ पर सभी विषयों को पाली भाषा में पढ़ाया जाता था। इसके बाद बौद्ध मठों एवं कुछ धर्मनिरपेक्ष संस्थाओं का विकास हुआ जिन्होंने बाद में व्यावहारिक शिक्षा प्रदान करने पर बल दिया| 500 BCE से 400 CE के बीच के समय में कई शहरी शिक्षा केंद्र तेजी से दिखाई देने लगे। शिक्षा के बहुत से महत्वपूर्ण शहरी केंद्र नालंदा (बिहार) और नागपुर में मनसा थे। इन संस्थानों ने व्यवस्थित रूप से ज्ञान प्रदान किया और कई विदेशी छात्रों को आकर्षित किया जैसे …
