Alcohol: a Drug in Disguise

Because alcohol is often viewed as a commodity, we forget the dangers of it. We forget it’s a depressant. We forget it’s an addictive substance. Many abusers begin their expose to binge drinking and alcohol abuse as adolescents.

Alcohol addiction can easily go under the radar because the symptoms are largely trivialized. If you drink frequently or excessively, your body will find ways to remind you, but aside from massive headaches and hangovers, you may not start to discover the dark side of alcohol abuse until it’s too late.

What are the Dangers
of Alcohol?

  • Wet brain (a serious form of brain damage that causes lack of muscle coordination, major memory problems, hallucinations and vision impairment)
  • Violence resulting from poor judgement and lack of inhibition
  • Strained or broken relationships from incidents caused while under the influence
  • High blood pressure, which increases the risk of heart failure, kidney damage, brain damage, and stroke
  • Depression
  • Liver damage
  • Nerve damage
  • Anemia
  • Increased risk for cancer

Whether your alcoholism is obvious to the outside world or not, your private life will suffer heavily under the influence of alcohol. Your relationships with your partner, your children, your parents, your siblings and your friends might be damaged by tension and hurtful incidents. Or maybe you’re not having fights at home, but you’re unable to provide support to your partner or your child or your parent, even at times when they’re going through serious illnesses or stressful life events.

The things you do when under the influence may include lying, cheating, getting aggressive, and doing other things that might go against your values. Consistently behaving in ways that are not aligned with who you are can lead to depression and self-loathing.
