Oh hello angels,
Happy Christmas Eve, today many of you will par take in an alcoholic beverage maybe one to many, and lots of people that don’t usually drink WILL drink at this time of year.
Having a drink is fine in moderation, we must be careful. I plan to have a few today but I’m always aware. I just wanted to put this out today to advise. It is Christmas and drinks every become rather a lot for our bodies to cope with so just be aware.
Bit of a serious post now but let’s talk about alcohol. This post is not about alcoholism it’s more about the affects on the body from binge drinking just so you are aware over the festive season.
A lot of us will be consuming alcohol over the festive time, and that is all well and good in moderation, but I want to make sure you aware of the effects of drinking too much and how a little bit and a lot will affect your whole body and mind. Drinking too much – on a single occasion or over time – can take a serious toll on your health.
Alcohol can affect your body, of course drinking every day is awful and you are then looking at alcoholism but binge drinking can also have massive, dangerous effects on you. Which is usually what happens over Christmas time.
It can affect your brain: Alcohol interferes with the brain’s communication. It can affect the way the brain looks and works, they can change mood and behavior, and make it harder to think clearly and move with coordination.
It can upset your heart: Drinking a lot over a long time or too much on a single occasion can damage the heart, causing problems.
your liver won’t thank you: Heavy drinking takes a massive toll on the liver, and can lead to a variety of problems and liver inflammations including: fatty liver, Alcoholic hepatitis and many more.
another is the Pancreas: Alcohol causes the pancreas to produce toxic substances that can eventually lead to, a dangerous inflammation and swelling of the blood vessels in the pancreas that prevents proper digestion.
again the Immune System: Drinking too much can weaken your immune system, making your body a much easier target for illness. Drinking a lot on a single occasion slows your body’s ability to ward off infections – even up to 24 hours after getting drunk.
A lot of my information and research is from https://www.niaaa.nih.gov/alcohol-health/alcohols-effects-body check it out..
Just wanted to make you guys aware. Stay safe and Merry Christmas Much Love J x
