This study presents the findings on the effect of alcoholism in family
development. The methodology was of a qualitative study which was
comprised 30 focus groups exploring the knowledge, attitudes and
practices of adolescents (15-17), young people (18-24 years of age) and
adults (25-35) towards alcohol in NanKulabwe in Kampala. The study was
aimed at finding out the knowledge, attitudes and practices of participants
in relation to alcohol use and abuse; identifying drivers of alcohol use and
abuse; explore the linkages between gender norms and alcohol use;
finding out the linkages between alcohol abuse and risky sexual behaviour
and establish; assessing the roles of existing social support structures and
institutions that influence behaviour in relation to alcohol abuse and
exploring perceptions about norms surrounding alcohol consumption.
Study participants were aware that alcohol could either be drank in
moderation or excessively to constitute abuse. Moderate use of alcohol
was associated with the ability to control one’s self after drinking, to carry
on one’s work and domestic responsibilities and to know when to stop
drinking. The control over their use of alcohol and who display
inappropriate behaviour are considered to be abusers of alcohol.
Generally, participants considered drinking behaviour that has a profound
negative impact on the individual and the surrounding environment
including friends and family to be abuse. Alcohol abuse was generally
associated with the failure to control one’s behaviour after drinking
alcohol. Study participants demonstrated some awareness of the short
term and long-term problems associated with excessive alcohol use, but
did not attribute negative consequences to moderate alcohol use. They
were fully aware that excessive alcohol use could have a detrimental
impact on an individual’s health and quality of life.
