Quit Drinking, Should I ?

Do you like to hang around the bar, cafe, night club, lounge, brewery or even side street alcohol shack just to spend your night and enjoy your beer, wine, vodka and cheap liquor?
If you say yes than you are already become alcohol addcit, you might say you are not or did not give a damn about it. But, just spare a few minutes of your time to raed it trough.

Usually people have their own reason for their action. It's not exactly the same reason for everybody but somehow it seems quite alike.

Alcohol is a mind-altering drug that affects our mood. We use it to celebrate, commiserate, to boost our confidence, to wind down.

We use it to overcome self-consciousness, give us 'Dutch courage' and help us loosen up in social gatherings.
The Gathering

Sometimes we use it to 'drown our sorrows'. In moderation, alcohol can, temporarily, make us feel better about ourselves but it is actually a depressant drug.

When we are feeling down, perhaps after a bereavement, relationship breakdown, disappointment, or if we are in physical pain, we might turn to alcohol for comfort. Most of us have done it but we soon find there's no solution in the bottom of an empty glass.

Ever heard that kind of reason? Ah, it does ring a bell right?

Now let's see what that do to you. That refers to Alcohol drink for sure.


      Alcohol is a fermented liquid that affects the blood stream. It is a depressant that slows the nervous system when it enters the body. Alcohol kills brain cells that do not regenerate quickly and has an adverse effect on the nervous system and liver. When you are drunk, you diminish your health and weaken your immune system. The next day you feel excruciating hung over.

Let’s say you stayed out partying with some friends. You danced, laughed, and downed a lot of alcohol. During that time, you were having so much fun.

The next day, however, is often a different story. Too much booze dehydrates a person, causing what many call the dreaded “hangover.” After a night of fun and binge drinking, you might have to deal with a day’s worth of head and body aches.

You are Gone

      When you are drunk you do not remember anything that happens. You may feel like you are having a great time but the next day it is as if you have lost moments of your life. And in a way you have. Being drunk is not being present. You are not aware and you are not truly available to those around you.

 Drunkenness is an escape from reality and a sacrifice of the present moment. It is not fair to those you spend time with and it is not fair to yourself. The moments of life are precious and go quickly. Spending your moments drunk is like flushing them down the drain.

Loss of Judgement

      Drunkenness impairs your better judgment. You behave in ways that you would not normally behave when you are under a strong influence of alcohol. Being drunk causes tempers to flare up and twist your thought process. Many fights break out between drunken people because their sense of judgment is askew.

You could say things you shouldn’t be saying. In a drunken stupor, you could hurl out all those obscenities you’ve been meaning to hurl at your boss. You could also confess your undying love to that 10-year-long crush of yours. True, some things need to be said, but having too much alcohol can make you slur your words.

Harming Yourself or Others

      You are most likely to hurt yourself and others when you are drunk. According to The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, "on average someone is killed in an alcohol-impaired driving crash every 45 minutes in the U.S." When you are drunk you lose control of your physical body are more susceptible to stumbling and falling down.
And do not forget, when you could do things you should not do, people could also do things to you.
Holy Lord, Here I Am

Disease and Death

      Excessive alcohol consumption and drunkenness can cause serious diseases and can actually kill you. According to CNN and the Mayo Clinic, excessive drunkenness can eventually cause higher probability of various cancers, heart disease, stroke, miscarriage, cirrhosis of the liver, pancreatitis and sudden death due to alcohol poisoning. It is also a major factor in depression which may lead to suicide.


Fact :
According to alcoholism statistics and alcohol abuse statistics, alcohol affects virtually every organ system in the body and, in high doses, can cause coma and death. It affects several neurotransmitter systems in the brain, including opiates, GABA, glutamate, serotonin, and dopamine. Increased opiate levels help explain the euphoric effect of alcohol, while its effects on GABA cause anxiolytic and sedative effects.

The harmful use of alcohol results in 2.5 million deaths each year.

320 000 young people between the age of 15 and 29 die from alcohol-related causes, resulting in 9% of all deaths in that age group.

Worldwide consumption in 2005 was equal to 6.13 litres of pure alcohol consumed per person aged 15 years or older. A large portion of this consumption – 28.6% or 1.76 litres per person – was homemade, illegally produced or sold outside normal government controls.
It's done. Cheers!!
