How can Alcohol Abuse Affect the Mind and Body?

Brain

Alcohol abuse can affect your brain greatly. It can cause short-term complications such as memory loss and poor coordination, but it can also lead to long-term conditions that can sometimes become permanent. Excessive and prolonged alcohol abuse can disrupt your bodyís communication pathways. It can cause you to lose balance, memory, and the sharpness of your reflexes.

Heart

Your heart is very vulnerable to alcohol abuse. Over time, alcohol consumption can weaken your heart, affecting how oxygen and nutrients are delivered to vital organs in your body. Youíre also likely to develop heart disease. Long-term effects of excessive drinking to your heart include stroke, cardiac arrest, and cardiomyopathy.

Liver

Excessive drinking for long periods of time can cause liver problems. When your liver is overwhelmed by the amount of alcohol youíre consuming in such a short period of time, it can lead to fatty liver, alcoholic hepatitis, cirrhosis, and fibrosis.

Pancreas

Alcohol abuse can also cause damage to your pancreas. The blood vessels around your pancreas can swell, causing pancreatitis. Medications can help with the symptoms but reversing the condition will be difficult. It also increases your risk of developing pancreatic cancer.
