My name is Madhumathi. I am studying in II year PUC. My father used to drink a lot almost all the time. I was very upset. He used to be angry with me and my mother for trivial issues and fight with us. Meanwhile, my younger sister got married and stayed away from us. My father started drinking more and blame me and my mother for the wedding of my sister. According to my father, if a girl child is educated, the girl would leave and run away from the family. Therefore, he did not let us go to school as well. Tired and fed up with all these, I thought of killing myself and I thought that is the only way out.
A Yuva Spandana program was held in our college and I got to know that I can speak to them about my problems for free. I visited the Kendra. Yuva Samalochaki spoke to me and I explained my problems. She consoled by making me realise that I am not alone in this suffering. She gave me the courage and motivation to move forward. She spoke with my parents and explained about the addiction, drinking etc.
Yuva Samalochaki explained about the situation to our family where there was no awareness, happiness and peace. I observed the changes in face of my father. He did not speak anything. He understood the side effects of alcohol and how it affects health. My father agreed to take treatment.
Now my father is under treatment and he is not misbehaving with us anymore. Also, we know how to take care of the situations. All individuals can take guidance from Yuva Spandana to any of your problems. I heartily thank Yuva Spandana Kendra for all the cooperation and help.
