Alcohol Abuse Consequences

If a person drinks alcohol excessively, it means that he or she will face physical and spiritual devastation very soon. Even after a few drinks a person may lose control over his/her condition and get into an accident because of this. Alcohol abuse results in destructive changes in a person’s behaviour, brings harm to a person’s mental condition and physical state, moreover, it often destroys the lives of alcoholics’ families and loved ones.
So what are the consequences of alcohol abuse for a person’s physical health? First and foremost, a person loses control over his/her body (muscles) and behaviour when drunk. This can lead to total lack of normal coordination, hence fatal and even lethal outcomes.
Another physical effect of alcoholism is vividly presented by the so-called blackouts or memory losses. Excuse the triviality of example, but do you remember Britney’s masterpiece with the eloquent name ‘Blur’? ‘Where the hell am I? Who are you? What’d we do last night?’ – These and more than a few other quotes from the song reveal this amnesiac result of excessive drinking very brightly.
Ever felt hungover? I bet you just ‘love’ the feelings and sensations it rewards one with! Nausea, headaches, dizziness, fatigue… Mind that if one continues drinking heavily, he/she rapidly approaches alcohol dependency which prompts withdrawal! If one continues in the same spirit and becomes an ‘experienced’ alcoholic, he/she puts his/her liver at stake. Let alone the fact that continuous alcohol abuse contributes to erectile dysfunction in men and increases the threat of suffering from insomnia, high blood pressure, cancer, brain and heart diseases – the whole bouquet of diseases and conditions which one can easily avoid by common sense, strong will and control over oneself.
Do you think instant and transient pseudo-relaxation and pseudo-pleasure alcohol brings to a person is worth maiming your and your closest people’s life for it? I don’t think so. I’m sure you are of the same opinion.
