Health risks due to alcohol misuse

Too much consumption of alcohol on a regular basis becomes an addiction and has a negative impact on the mental and physical health of the person.

The addiction of alcohol is also known as alcohol misuse. The amount of alcohol consumed and the age of the person can affect the impact of the substance on the body.

Short term risks of alcohol misuse

Taking smaller quantity of alcohol increases the heart rate and makes the person feel warmer from within.

A little more alcohol starts to effect the brain and the nervous system. This means that the person may not be able to take rational decisions and become more indecisive.

After 3-4 glasses the person is not able to speak clearly any more as the alcohol takes control over the brain and makes it almost numb.

Most people are not able to recall what they do after they have been drunk.

The blackout or hangover also comes with other issues such as headache, nausea, fatigue, drowsiness, sweating, dry mouth, anxiety.

These are just the short term risks of taking alcohol.
