Severe alcohol use creates a host of physical discomforts. Some effects of alcohol are quite noticeable, such as shakes, tremors, profuse sweating, nausea, seizures, and insomnia. Alcohol is particularly notorious for increasing the chance that a person may have a brain hemorrhage. It’s also commonly associated with increases in blood pressure, which can become chronic if alcohol is consumed on a regular basis. Alcoholic neuropathy, affecting the muscular and excretory systems, may also develop, as well as Wernicke-Korsakoff Syndrome.

Once addicted to alcohol, there is a dependence to the alcohol on both the psychological and physical levels.  An individual feels that they cannot function without alcohol, and their brain will no longer produce or respond to certain signals without the presence of alcohol. The cost to the drinkers themselves and to others is enormous.  Giving up drinking after decades can be a challenging prospect, but it’s certainly possible.

These articles explain more about the effects of alcohol, how to recognize the signs and symptoms of alcoholism, and how to get help for an alcoholic.
