In Indian families, the consumption of alcohol is often deemed inappropriate due to a combination of cultural, religious, and societal reasons. Many consider it as a factor that disrupts familial harmony and leads to irresponsible behaviour. Also, in some religions practiced in India, consuming alcohol is considered a sin. Moreover, the overall societal mindset in many parts of India still stigmatizes alcohol consumption. This, coupled with the health risks associated with heavy drinking, makes alcohol consumption frowned upon in Indian families.
