The Nasty Affects Of Alcohol

Jan 24, 2008
I wanted to really dedicate this post to some of the most common and interesting facts of drinking alcohol.

Alcohol is the cause of many devastating affects worldwide, did you know that in the States alone it directly causes 110,000 deaths this figure being around 55,000 in Canada, depending where you read. It is responsible for much violence and for the breaking up of millions of families every year.

Alcohol is the leading killer on the roads, especially when teenagers are involved. People who drink are statistically proven to have worse grades and are unable to perform their jobs to the best of their ability. Alcohol is also closely linked to smoking which is another major cause of death, and users are more likely to tamper with other lethal drugs.

If you are finding yourself drinking everyday and having to come home from work and immediately hit the bottle, the chances are you are suffering with alcohol addiction. This is a problem you must address before it is too late!! What does too late mean your asking?

After having my own experience with Alcohol and doing research into it over the past 3 years I have discovered it is responsible for a lot of chronic diseases, such as;

- High Blood Pressure
- Liver Damage
- Damages nervous system
- Increases chance of heart attack
- Kills Memory
- Stomach problems
- Cancer
- Sexual deficiencies

These are just some of the possible problems you will face if you do not confront your addiction now. With all these nasty affects it is a wonder that anyone would still want to drink?

I think you will find a lot of alcohol starts first of all through pier pressure. They think it looks cool in front of their friends, not realising the damage they are causing to themselves. Remember you only get one chance at this life so you really need to make the most of it!!

Once you become dependant on alcohol it is very difficult to get off it without the help of someone else. If you are searching for help or you know anyone that is, remember it is always available. Recognizing that you have a problem is always the first step in finding a solution.

People always say to me I only have one drink a day or I only drink at weekends. I always answer an alcoholic would never be an alcoholic if he or she did not start with that first drink.

Addiction to alcohol is something I have personal experience with I have seen the devastating affects first hand and can tell you now even one drink is not worth the risk! It only takes something to happen in your life that your not sure how to deal with and suddenly you find yourself turning to the bottle to numb the pain or depression. Any disasters that do happen to you in life are to shape and mould your character, yes its hard but please do not use alcohol to prevent yourself facing it.
