Alcoholism...A Slow Death

May 26, 2008
Alcoholism has become one of the most prevalent diseases in our society today. The everyday pressures of life and the burden of worries that we face every day have served as a catalyst for this growing affliction.

In today's 24hr consumer society alcohol is suddenly always available so the act of escaping from your problems is made that much easier for you. The problem is that if you turn your back on a problem, it will only grow so by drinking alcohol nothing is being solved. Another negative side of alcohol is that it is a depressant, which will only make you consume more making the problem worse until the continuing cycle of events will lead to an alcoholic losing complete track of what is reality and what isn't.

This sad chain of events will only lead to a certain addiction to alcohol for anyone who is just unable to deal with a problem that life sometimes throws at you. There now exists a real problem and one that is not going to be as simple to deal with. We are now not just looking at a lack of social skills abilities, we are now going to have to deal with a serious health condition, one that kills.

The alcohol that we choose to deal with our problems will now pass down our throat and into the stomach, and from here it is absorbed into the blood stream and will then pass into the liver. This organ is responsible for breaking alcohol into a variety of chemicals.

The following process leads to these chemicals being changed into water and co2, which are then excreted from the body. This may all seem a very simple process but the liver is placed under a lot of stress in order to produce these function simultaneously. So if you begin to consume large quantities of alcohol the liver is unable to cope and therefore the alcohol levels in the blood stream rise.
