Toxic to the Liver:

Almost percent of the alcohol you consume is metabolized by your liver, according to healthline. Many poisons are dealt with during the process. Chronic alcoholism causes fat to build up in the organs, allowing for the development of fibrous tissue. As a result of the reduced blood flow, liver cells are unable to survive. A disease called cirrhosis occurs when the liver becomes scarred and unable to function properly as a result of the death of the cells.

If Your Central Nervous System Is Affected

Behaviours can be altered by alcohol. Slurred speech and a lack of coordination are the result of this speech inhibition. It impairs one's capacity to regulate one's emotions and recall information, resulting in "blackouts." Numbness, weakness, and even momentary paralysis are side effects of alcohol usage. The frontal lobes of the brain might shrink with prolonged use. Addiction and severe withdrawal symptoms can result from heavy drinking.


The Digestive System Is Affected

Digestion begins in the stomach, where alcohol is initially broken down. Aside from the stomach and colon, where alcohol is absorbed and digested, it can also slow down the typical rate at which food travels through these organs, causing discomfort, bloating, and diarrhea.


It Affects the Psyche.

Mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder, can increase as a result of regular drinking, which can have an impact on overall health and well-being. Hangovers can cause feelings of anxiousness, as well.
