My name is Soujanya. My husband had a habit of drinking. He used to drink every day and night spending his entire earning. When he had no money, he used to ask me for the money and drink. My parents thought he was a good man and this was his temporary behaviour. But it was not temporary. His drinking continued resulting in fights at home every day. My parents started helping me financially looking at my family condition. It was hard for me to run a family.
I got to know about Yuva Spandana Program from my neighbour and got contact details of the Yuva Spandana Kendra. I received a call from Yuva Spandana Kendra a few days later. It would be possible that my neighbours would have given our contact details to Yuva Spandana. They approached us and called us to visit Yuva Spandana Kendra to talk in detail about my problems. I visited YSK along with my husband.
Yuva Samalochaka spoke with me first. She asked me about my problems and family condition. I explained everything about me, my husband, my parents etc. Then she spoke with my husband. She asked him whether it is possible for him to stop drinking. He said it is not possible as he would find it difficult to sleep, work, and moreover his hands would tremble if he quit drinking. She suggested treatment for all the symptoms if he was ready to quit drinking.
My husband strictly rejected to go to a hospital to receive the treatment. So Yuva Samalochaka suggested a rehabilitation centre where my husband is currently under treatment. I thank Yuva Spandana and Yuva Samalochaka for understanding our problem and guiding us.
