Alcohol Dependency and Your Health: Get Help with Archstone Recovery
If you or a loved one have been drinking too much or have experienced problems with alcoholism, you probably know a thing or two about the harmful short-term effects of alcohol abuse. There are the hangovers, the vomiting, the big red nose with the broken capillaries, the shakes. There’s the violence, too, and all the bad decisions you make. But you know all that. What you might not know is that alcohol addiction can have serious long-term effects on almost every system in your body.
Most people know that alcoholism can cause cirrhosis of the liver. But did you know that it can also lead to neuropathic disorders and stroke? Hepatitis is a major risk, as well as cancer of the mouth, throat, esophagus, breast, colon, and liver. Cardiovascular issues such as myocardial infarction, cardiomyopathy, atrial fibrillation, and hypertension are also extremely common among patients with alcohol dependency. Gastrointestinal problems such as gastritis and pancreatitis can also result. The fact is that alcohol abuse means you are poisoning your body, from the inside out.
