Looks nice isn't it? <ul><li>Well,it's nice to drink some alcohol in a while but if you keep it doing it for long and without taking care it will be very dangerous for you. </li></ul>
People who drink frequently or in large quantities can become addicted to alcohol. A person is considered to be dependent on alcohol when they have experienced three or more of the following symptoms during a year: -Difficulty controlling how much they drink, or difficulty stopping. - Physical symptoms , such as sweating, shaking, agitation and nausea when they try to reduce drinking. -A growing tolerance to alcohol -Gradual neglect of other activities . -Persistent drinking even though it is obviously causing harm.
Short-term effects It's true that a small amount of alcohol will relax you and make you feel less anxious. But alcohol is a depressant of the central nervous system. In increasing amounts it suppresses the part of your brain that controls judgement, resulting in a loss of inhibitions. It also affects your physical co-ordination, causing blurred vision, slurred speech and loss of balance. Drinking a very large amount at one time can lead to unconsciousness , coma , and even death .
Long-term effects Alcohol can be a dangerous drug. Drinking too much too often will cause physical damage, increase the risk of getting some diseases, and make other diseases worse. Excessive drinking over time is associated with: - H epatitis and cirrhosis of the liver -H igh blood pressure - D amage to the brain -H eart failure -N eurological problems such as epilepsy -C ertain types of cancer , including mouth and throat -C ertain types of vitamin deficiency -G astritis or pancreatitis
