ABSTRACT

problem of alcoholism has been one of the major contemporary challenges confronting our society. This is due to; the increasing number of people that indulged in this addiction, the effects on the alcoholic victims and the surrounding environment and the social economical cost. The reality of this situation is quite glaring. This can be seen in numbers of psychiatric cases, road accidents, social ills, health conditions etc resulting from the abuse of alcohol. The Bible treated this same issue indicating that though alcoholism is a contemporary problem, it started in ancient times. The book of Proverbs 23:29-35 is one of the Scriptural chapters that treated on the dangers associated with alcoholism and the pathway of safety. In this project, the researcher attempts to study the book of Proverbs 23:29-35 in order to have deeper knowledge on the state and effects of alcoholism. Such understanding is very important and valuable to the Nigerian society if the menace of alcoholism can be arrested. The study findings are applied to the situation of alcoholism in Nigeria and possible treatment measures were suggested.

 

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1 Background of the Study

Alcohol has many usage and contrasting connotations. A glass of wine with a meal can symbolize Love, friendship, relaxation and enjoyment of a special occasion. It can represent romance, coming of age, success, beginnings and endings, good news and good company. At a Christian Eucharist or Jewish Passover, where wine is also shared, thanks are given to God for divine salvation from all that were enslaved, restricted and condemned. In drinking the wine, Christians participate with the first disciples in their Last Supper with Christ, and Jews participate with the ancient Hebrews in their exodus from enslavement in Egypt.

In African tradition, wine is used to portray a relationship and communion between the living human and ancestors, deities and other supernatural entities. This is evidence in covenant establishment, oath taking, daily ritual of libation, burial and institution of shrines and altars. Also in marriage ceremonies, the usage of alcoholic wine is indispensible even against the vehement opposition of Pentecostal churches in Africa with Nigeria as typical example. Ekwe (2000) stated that apart from water and wind, wine is another integral and indispensible part of African life and living. The presence is felt in almost all the activities of African customs and traditions ranging from burials, rituals, marriages, oath takings, covenant establishments, meetings, hospitalities, evening relaxation to all forms of their daily activities.
