Why alcohol is a bad habit

Some call alcohol a disease which is probably true for those who cannot stop themselves from drinking but for the majority of us drinking is a habit. Habitual drinkers tend to have a glass of wine with dinner or a beer in front of the television when the footballs on. In short, they drink socially or just out of habit and that can be a bad thing.

Alcohol has a damaging effect on the brain. The things that people love about drinking: slurring their speech, removing their inhibitions and making them forget can be fun in the short term but imagine what it would be like if alcohol created these effects as long term problems?

Heavy drinking has a major effect on the brain. Slips in memory, impaired ability to do things that were second nature like driving and slow reactions are debilities that some heavy drinkers deal with in their daily lives.

Habitual drinkers can also suffer from these problems. The factors that influence this include how often a person drinks, their age and how long they’ve been drinking. Factors like prenatal alcohol exposure and poor general health can also affect this.
