Alcohol abuse, alcoholism, or alcohol dependency involve consumption of alcohol over a prolonged period of time, and damage to almost every part of a problem drinker’s body. The inevitable health problems can include heart problems, organ damage, stomach problems, brain damage, cancer, reproductive problems, liver cirrhosis, memory problems and mental health problems.
Alcohol Dependency, abuse, or addiction affects not just the person doing the drinking. Beloved family members and everyone else close to the alcoholic inevitably gets dragged into the walking disaster as well. Partners and children of the problem drinker are more likely to suffer psychological problems, physical abuse, violence, neglect and increased risk of injury or death in alcohol related accidents and assaults.
