Sure, if you can stick to just one drink a day or less than that you are not getting too many of the damaging effects from it but if you are someone who consumes more than a glass a day what is that doing to your body and your brain? Well for one alcohol can affect many areas of your brain, for instance, your memory and motor coordination. It also is making your dopamine receptors less sensitive, this is something that happens over time with addiction in general.
According to Dr. Samuel Ball when a person becomes dependent on alcohol it can be extremely destructive to their organ systems as well as their body in general. I am sure you already know the risk of liver disease but did you know it could also cause esophageal problems and stomach issues? When it comes to the worst possible scenarios things like alcohol related dementia really don’t sound too fun.
When we consume alcohol about 33 percent is absorbed into the blood through our stomach lining. Once it is in our blood stream it spreads to just about every tissue in the body. Anything over 5 drinks a day for men or 4 a day for women is considered binge drinking.
