ALCOHOL

Posted on: July 18, 2012


Alcohol depresses your central nervous system (brain and spinal cord), lowers inhibitions1 and impairs judgment. Drinking large amounts can lead to a coma and even death. Mixing alcohol with medications or street drugs is extremely dangerous and can be fatal. Alcohol influences your brain and leads to a loss of coordination, slowed reflexes, distorted vision, memory lapses and blackouts. Teenage bodies are still growing and alcohol has a greater impact on young people’s physical and mental well-being than on older people.

Short-term Effects:

Feeling of warmth, flushed skin, impaired judgment, lack of coordination, slurred speech, memory and comprehension loss. Heavy drinking usually results in a “hangover,” headache, nausea, anxiety, weakness, shakiness and sometimes vomiting.

 

Long-term Effects:

Tolerance to many of the unpleasant effects of alcohol and a resulting ability to drink more. This leads to a deteriorating physical condition that can include liver damage and increases the risk of heart disease. A pregnant woman may give birth to a baby with defects that affect the baby’s heart, brain and other major organs. A person can become dependent on alcohol. If someone suddenly stops drinking, withdrawal symptoms may set in. They range from jumpiness, sleeplessness, sweating and poor appetite to convulsions and sometimes death. Alcohol abuse can also lead to violence and conflicts in one’s personal relationships.

I regard something genuinely interesting about your web site so I saved to fav.

Hello webmaster. I came to your “ALCOHOL I Am Addicted 2” page via Google but it was difficult to find as you were not on the first page of search results. This means you are missing out on a lot of web traffic from the search engines. I have found a website which offers to dramatically increase your rankings and traffic to your website: http://venueseo.com/7-day-free-trial. I managed to get close to 1000 visitors per day using their services, you could also get lot more targeted traffic from Google than you have now. Hope this helps 🙂 Take care.
