Alcohol Addiction

Alcohol Addiction

Alcoholism is the physical and mental addiction a person obtains to alcohol over a period of time.  Many alcoholics are unaware that their addiction is has gone as far as it has until it is too late and the effects of alcoholism have taken over.  When a person is an alcoholic, it effects them in two ways physically and mentally.  Some physical issues that every alcoholic has to face include possible liver and kidney failure, stomach rupture, excessive weight gain, heart and health issues, dehydration, and problems with your internal networks and how they function.  Some mental issues that you have to deal with include memory loss and possible hallucinations. 

For people who are going down the path towards becoming an alcoholic, they have to worry about short term effects as well as long term.  Some short term effects that alcohol has on the mind and body include blurred vision, confusion, loss of control of your actions, vomiting, headaches, and nausea.  These effects are only short term and they usually only last until the alcohol is out of the body.
