feel like drinking when you're disappointed or
bored? If so, there's a good chance of your becoming
an alcoholic. All the more if you come from a
family of alcoholics.
If you drink here's what you hould know
Alcohol is NOT a mood elevator. It's a depressant.
It acts on your nervous system and makes you feel
uninhibited, thus giving you a false feeling of
relaxation. Only for a brief span. Then it plays
on areas of thought, emotion, speech and judgement.
And in the long run, damages the liver, peripheral
nerves, brain and causes heart failure. The first
time you have a drink, a chemical, THIQ, is manufactured
in the brain. And remains there for ever. This
chemical is supposed to be responsible for the
uncontrollable alcoholic cravings. If you find
yourself craving for alcohol, don't wait, seek
professional help. Alcoholism is a disease that
can be cured. Alcohol-sensitizing drugs can help.
Ask your doctor about them.
