Drug addiction among the population is a major social menace. This paper proposes an innovative method to offer a promising deterrent against alcohol abuse using Augmented Reality (AR) as a tool. The proposed method aims at traumatizing an alcoholic person by augmenting multiple multimedia objects in the vicinity of a person. A modified Parallel Tracking and Mapping (PTAM) technique has been proposed to create an AR workspace. For this, we have proposed an improvement in the Bundle Adjustment. A novel concept of map independence is incorporated in the PTAM, providing freedom of augmenting multimedia in the desired position. The major contribution of this paper is that a versatile AR platform is developed for a monocular camera-based system for educating alcoholic persons for overcoming alcohol addiction.
