Abstract:     
This paper discusses the nature, determinants and extent of alcoholism with its burden on the society. The logit and multi-logit models are used for the data analysis based on a qualitative survey method. Findings suggest that standard of living index and education will help to reduce alcoholism and its burden in the society irrespective of productive age, targeted areas, social groups, and gender classifications. Policies should be targeted on these factors to have a rational and welfare-oriented society.
