Excessive alcohol consumption and alcohol overdose are not typically associated with causing aortic aneurysm. Aortic aneurysm is a condition in which the walls of the aorta, the largest blood vessel in the body, weaken and bulge outwards, potentially leading to rupture and life-threatening bleeding.

The risk factors for developing an aortic aneurysm include high blood pressure, smoking, and family history. Alcohol abuse can lead to high blood pressure, which is a risk factor for aneurysm, but it is not a direct cause of aortic aneurysm.

However, long-term heavy drinking and alcoholism can cause a range of health problems, including cardiovascular disease, which may increase the risk of developing aortic aneurysm.

If you have concerns about your alcohol consumption or its potential impact on your health, it is important to speak with a healthcare professional who can provide guidance and support.
