Alcoholism and the Destruction of Life
We all know how alcohol is bad for our health and we are aware that we should either drink in moderation or do not drink at all. However, some people need help since they have gone too far. In the long run, alcohol is capable of triggering an addiction, making one incapable of living without constant alcoholconsumption.
All in all, people need to stop excessive alcohol consumption through some effective methods. Rehabilitation is one of the best methods for these purposes. However, prevention is still the best. Thus, before you even start indulging into alcohol consumption excessively, consider the following risks seriously.
The Effects of Alcohol on One's Life
First of all, alcohol makes you intoxicated and interferes with your right judgment. This leads you to many potentially dangerous and deadly situations. Moreover, when combined with medications you might need to take regularly, alcohol may provoke an undesirable effect, making you more sedated, being more prone to accidents while driving or handling certain machinery. Also, in combination with some medications, alcohol can damage your liver and/or kidneys.
Next, alcohol consumption on a daily basis can interfere with your life. Thus, if you drink every night excessively, you are likely to be late for work, perform badly and suffer from a hangover. All these things can get you fired or cause you to make certain mistakes which can damage other people's interests in one way or another.
Alcohol consumption in pregnancy is bound to interfere with the development of the child, possibly causing debilitation, deformations and other physical and mentalproblems.
As mentioned above, alcohol damages your liver, making you prone to hepatitis, liver cirrhosis, liver cancer and other, similar, dangerous illnesses.
In the long run, alcohol consumption is bound to make you mentally impaired, if you do not know your own limits. It affects your judgment, motor functions and logical thinking instantly, while it makes you prone to forgetfulness, amnesia, speech, memory and concentration issues later.
Finally diabetes patients should not consume alcohol at all, due to the fact that it interferes with the insulin they are already taking, being potentially deadly. Your pancreas and metabolism in general suffers the damage from your drinking as well, again, making you prone to illnesses and eventual death.
All in all, if you are careless, alcohol can, and will, kill you, sooner or later. Thus, be careful, drink in moderation or do not drink at all.
