Alcohol Addiction- Cunning, Baffling and Powerful.
Alcohol addiction seems less intense and scary sounding compared to heroin addiction or crack addiction. The truth of the matter is though, alcohol addiction is probably the scariest addiction of them. The effects of alcohol are astounding and in comparison to other drugs the facts are suprising. Not saying drugs are a better option but most people tend to find alcohol or alcohol addiction more acceptable than an addiction to crack/cocaine or an opiate. Let me tell you some of the facts:
Alcohol addiction is scary for many reasons, first reason being that alcohol penetrates every single cell in your body. All the cells that make up your lungs, your heart, your brain, your skin, your liver, your stomach; every single cell that makes up your physical being is penetrated by alcohol.
Alcohol addiction is so dangerous for this second reason. Alcohol penetrates every single cell in your body but it is also a corrosive. Ever wonder why your throat burns when you take a shot of liquor? Imagine putting your brain in a jar of alcohol and shaking it, the brain turns to mush. Essentially we all know what this is really called when it happens to you from drinking- wet brain. Thats what your brain is dealing with when you have an alcohol addiction.
Alcohol addiction is so dangerous because the poison you have picked is just that; a poison. It is corrosive, I mean come on its the same thing that can fuel a car and is extremely flammable. Its a corrosive poison and it penetrates every single cell in your body and turns your brain to mush. Also, alcohol addiction is one of the few addictions where the withdrawal from it can absolutely kill you.
Next thing I have to say about alcohol addiction is; Seizures, dementia, liver disease, heart disease, delerium tremors, memory loss, black outs, fights, diabetes, osteoporosis, sexual dysfunction, lack of motor skills or motor function, loss of bowel movements. Thats not all either. Theres kidney stones, metabolic syndrome, loss of stable mental health, sleep disturbances, hinderances in brain development, pancreatis, hormonal imbalances, fetal alcohol syndrome, and last but definitely not least, DEATH.
End of story. End of a fairy tale. Yes, yes, death is the end of a story. Death from alcohol addiction is the end of a life. Alcohol addiction is cunning, its baffling, its powerful and its socially accepted. Wowza! Our country alone spends billions on advertising for alcohol. Creating a social stigma that doesnt cause alcohol addiction but it definitely fuels into it. Alcohol addiction is one of the most unpleasant addictions to have when it comes to being an alcoholic or drug addict. The effects of being a hard drinker or alcoholic can last for months up to years even after you stop drinking and step out of your alcohol addiction.
