    In moderation, the health effects may actually be beneficial depending on what you drink. When overused, the primary long term health effects are liver cirrhosis, liver cancer, impairment of immune function, and hardening of arteries (leading to heart attack and/or stroke). Alcoholics suffering withdrawal smptoms without proper treatment can die, the withdrawal is much worse than for other drugs (including cocaine and heroin). Also remember that alcohol can impair judgment, which can indirectly bring on other health problems, e.g. drinking and driving, greater likeliihood of having unprotected sex--STDs, etc.

    Loss of vitamin B12 and other nutrients in the body. :sick: with Gout along with all the things FiveAlive mentioned. Plus you might end up just an alcoholic and a homeless person, being violent and loosing your friends and family. Stop the drinks and the eats and see how many stay at your party. Rainy day friends you don't need and alcohol lushes are full of greed. ( for more drink ) :rain:

    Alcohol is actually a poison (toxin).

    That's why getting drunk is called being "inTOXICated".

    It wasn't meant for consumption, but only for external medical use for killing germs and sterilizing.

    It literally BURNS tissue.

    Alcohol is one of the few substances that can actually penetrate the blood-brain barrier and damage the brain.
