Any time his friends or relatives ask him why he drinks alcohol too much, he always quotes a verse from the bible.
“Not what goes into the mouth defiles a man, but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man.”
He was so addicted to alcohol that he is only sober whenever he is broke. He was always the last person to leave the beer parlour he frequented. Whenever he gets drunk, he usually sings and this made the kids in his neighborhood to like him.
He wasn’t always a drunkard. It all started after he lost his wife and two kids to a car accident. He was the one driving the car and he only suffered a mild concussion. Things started going downhill since then.
He wasn’t sacked at his place of work because his father-in-law owned the company he was working at. He always showed up for work everyday although he was drunk most of the time.
They found his lifeless body in his kitchen four days after he didn’t show up for work. The autopsy revealed that he died due to a liver problem.
