Alcohol's Negative Effects

Alcohol has many negative effects on the human body including short term effects such as having trouble walking and talking due to loss of muscle control. There are also long term effects such as loss of brain cells and cirrhosis of the liver.

Loss of muscle control

Alcohol can cause a person to lose all muscle control. Without muscle control they may have trouble walking and lose their balance. That person may also have trouble talking and have slurred speech.

Loss of brain cells

Abusing alcohol may kill brain cells. When brain cells are destroyed they can never be restored.

Cirrhosis of the liver

Abusing alcohol can lead to cirrhosis of the liver. Cirrhosis of the liver is when the liver grows scar tissue instead of healthy liver cells.

Alcoholics Anonymous is a group who can help people with past or present drinking problems.
