Alcohol brings damage to every organ in your body, even if you don’t consume it in big amounts. Additionally, if you happen to consume alcohol in big doses, it may bring damage to your heart, liver and brain. When alcohol enters your brain, it numbs nerve cells, slowing down their ability to send messages to your body. If you continue to drink, the nerve centers inside the brain and you may lose control over speech, balance, vision, and judgment.
Alcohol also depresses the activity of your heart muscle and speeds up your pulse. When you drink too much, fats accumulate in the liver, resulting in a condition known as fatty liver. Continued heavy drinking rapidly produces 2 stages of liver disease: cirrhosis and alcoholic hepatitis. People with these diseases experience appetite and weight loss, enlarged and inflamed liver, accumulation of fluid in the abdomen. Cirrhosis usually leads to liver failure or liver cancer. Other possible effects of heavy drinking are heart failure, varicose veins in the esophagus, stomach bleeding, and inflammation of the pancreas.
The disorders produced by alcoholism are very costly in terms of human suffering and economic hardship.
Bottom line? Quit Drinking if you still are!
