Less than 1 minute of sipping alcohol, your body will react spontaneously to its intoxicating power. The experience is comparable to a mild electric discharge journeying up to your brain. And once it reaches up there, it will immediately disconnect the processes going on in your brain by slowing down the pathways and chemicals that are required by brains cells for sending out coherent messages. You may become drowsy, experience slow reflexes or lose your mindfulness altogether. There is every possibility that you may become moody, unbalanced, and drunk!
Direct effects of Alcohol on your body
A small, occasional sip of alcohol may not produce any observable side-effects; in fact, having a little amount of alcohol every now and then is considered to be good for your health. However, binge-drinking of alcoholic drinks may cause the following serious health problems in your body:
- Too much alcohol may increase your stomach acid level and eventually cause painful ulcers.
- It may lead to having a chronic Liver Disease.
- Your brain shrinks if you drink too much alcohol. This means that your ability to think, reason properly, and to remember things may be hampered by too much booze.
- You may have diarrhea and heartburn.
- It may cause your kidneys to wear out and make you to urinate every now and then.
- Too much booze may destroy your pancreatic glands and lead to diabetes.
- Alcohol may increase your blood pressure.
- You may have weaker immune system if your drinking is just too much.
- Alcohol may hinder the smooth functions of your hormones.
- It may cause you to lose your sharp hearing.
- Too much booze will thin your bones and produce less muscle.
- On top of that, you will have a hangover the following day that may render the day boring and unappetizing to you.
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms described above, it is very essential that you see your doctor. Because it is very dangerous to let your kidney, liver, and pancreatic glands damaged before seeking for a medical intervention.
