Alcohol and Alcoholism
Alcohol is a drug, but unlike the other drugs, marijuana,
cocaine, heroine, and probably all the others for some
reason this is socially accepted and is legal.
Alcohol is bad for you and does have long term affects associated with it.
Such as the long addiction to it, effects on the body, and
the social interaction effects.
Alcohol, and alcoholism is
common in America, but drinking is more common around
kids. Social drinking a term kids and drinkers have come
accustom to, social drinking is defined by one standard
drink per hour, and no more than 3 per day, but some
people just socialize around people that drink as heavily as
they do and confuse that for social drinking. Addiction to
alcohol can be acquired easily if not careful, binge drinking
and family history are all keys in the identification of
Family history could be linked to alcoholism by
finding out if your family had problems in the past with
alcohol, and it is determined by studies that genes have
effects on alcohol. Alcohol is a drug, but legal unlike the
other drugs on the street, in my opinion drugs are all
harmful to the body, and can have serious problems to you
in the long run. Alcohol can effect the body in multiple
ways. The tranquilizing effects of being drunk, acts like a
stimulate, but is a depressant, and causes the brain to lower
self control, and impairs vision, other senses and effects
bodily coordination. This tranquilizing effect is effected by
the consumption or other wise intake of alcohol has serious
effects on the liver, the heart, and the brain. The alcohol
consumption effects all these and have an overall
personality change when signs of alcoholism begin. Alcohol
overall has a detrimental effect over the body and the mind.
I do believe alcohol is a drug and like other drugs which
are not legalized in the U.S. it is still really bad for you.
