Alcoholism is a chronic disease that can cause much different health and mental problems if left untreated. It can even lead to an early death. If addiction is caught early on and prevented then most of the problems it causes can be reversed. This isn’t the case if it continues for many years.
The brain is a fantastic organ. It controls everything about you from breathing to walking to thinking of talking. Drinking alcohol can change things about the brain immediately, like how it relays information to your body. This means over time alcohol abuse can do some severe damage to your brain and your body.
