Abstract

The complex adipose organ

In the past, the advice of the medical experts concerning human health and relationship with others in the family and society were taken seriously because of responsible alcohol drinking. It had a positive role to play within the extended family in Africa. It encouraged adults to come together and share ideas, values, enjoy happily their leisure time, learn to plan for their families’ development and progress.However, today the advice of medical doctors about responsible drinking is not taken seriously because this good image of alcohol is no more in the West Nile region. Misunderstandings and abuse of alcohol are common.

Nobody seems to take seriously the root causes of the problem, which rests on three fundamental questions: ‘Who drinks the alcohol?’; ‘Why drink the alcohol?’; and ‘What happens after a person has drunk the alcohol?’. Abuse of alcohol affects family pastoral care. Solving the problem requires taking seriously the wedding at Cana, Saint Paul’s advice to Timothy, Eucharistic celebration, and African collaboration in child nurture and protection.
