Understanding the Effects of Alcohol

Posted by Trust care on November 26th, 2022

Unlike many vices, alcohol itself is not addicting. However, it should only be consumed by responsible adults, occasionally and in moderation. Those susceptible to addiction (especially individuals who suffer depression, anxiety, or an inability to cope with stress) should not drink alcohol because alcohol can lead to addiction in the wrong hands. We have the best alcohol rehabilitation centre in Mumbai.

If you, or somebody you know, may be suffering from alcohol addiction, the sooner you get help the less damage you will have to overcome.

Understanding the Short-Term Effects of Alcohol - Alcohol has a way of helping people loosen up. Alcohol can help one relax after a long day at work but it should never be consumed for this purpose.

Although alcohol makes you feel relaxed, it is a downer. So when the short-term effects fade, you will feel more depressed, anxious, or exhausted. In other words, the temporary relief from negative feelings will fade and be replaced by an increase in those negative feelings.

At this point, you have a choice to deal with those feelings or drink more. As with any downer, alcohol addiction develops as a false sense of pleasure that causes pain.

Also, if one drinks too much alcohol they will experience negative side effects and damages which can even be fatal. Examples of negative, short-term side effects include:


-          impaired sense of judgment, creating dangerous situations for yourself and those around you

-          temporary brain damage, can be recognized in slurred speech and clumsiness

-          dizziness and nausea or vomiting

-          temporary unconsciousness (blacking out)

-          dehydration

-          decreased heart rate, blood pressure, and respiration

-          confusion & disorientation

Yes, these symptoms occur anytime you consume alcohol. The amount of alcohol you consume, or the length of time that you abuse alcohol, will affect how severe these symptoms become.

Understanding the Long Term Effects of Alcohol - Those struggling with alcohol addiction will experience damaged relationships and life in general. They may have a hard time keeping a job and functioning in society, and this will have damaged their health as well as create health problems for close friends and family.

While these damages can sometimes be repaired by seeking alcohol addiction treatment, the lasting physical damages may persist. The sooner one seeks treatment, the better! Examples of long-term physical damages caused by long-term alcohol abuse include:


-          damage to the liver

-          oral cancer, cancer in the digestive tract, and other types of cancer

-          Weakened immunity system, resulting in higher vulnerability to frequent colds as well as more serious diseases and illnesses

-          heart disease

-          stroke

-          mental health problems

-          weight gain

-          problems with long-term, or short-term, memory

-          infertility, as well as other sexual disorders

Understanding How to Prevent Alcohol Addiction - Alcohol addiction develops differently, but if you can recognize the warning signs-- such as drinking too much, drinking too often, or depending on alcohol to cope with the stress you can prevent the situation from escalating.

There are several ways to prevent alcohol addiction, but the most important is to live a healthy lifestyle, eat a nutritious diet, exercise, and engage in positive activities. Alcohol can weaken a person who does not live a healthy lifestyle, so it is important to focus on (or engage in) the more positive choices.
