Moderate alcohol consumption can have a beneficial effect on health but when alcohol is consumed excessively, it can lead to very serious short and long-term consequences, including a shortened life expectancy.
The two major problems of long-term excessive drinking are dependence on alcohol and damage to various body organs. It will depend on the individual as to whether they suffer any of the long-term effects of excessive alcohol consumption and we strongly advise you to visit your GP or seek other help if you feel you may be drinking too much.
Some of the effects of excessive alcohol consumption are:
• Liver disease including cirrhosis of the liver
• Chest infections
• Nerve damage and epilepsy
• Muscle damage
• Brain damage
• Alcohol dependence
Excessive drinking can also cause considerable stress and concern for the drinker’s family and friends and affect relationships with them.
