Alcohol has a variety of effects on a person’s system. It affects your body and mind. Depending on how a person consumes alcohol, it can have both short-term and long-term consequences. The amount of impact alcohol does on your body is determined by how much you drink and your drinking habit.
Too much alcohol can cause a hangover, alcohol poisoning, or any of the other short-term consequences of alcohol intake, such as accidents and violence, mood changes, vomiting, passing out, and more. Long-term effects of alcoholism, on the other hand, can include heart disease, cancer, liver cirrhosis, and diabetes. You can lower your chance of these short- and long-term health problems by not drinking too much.
