Understanding Alcohol (Part 2)

PDFPrintE-mail

Morality in Media by DMI Tetuan Circle

*Ill Effects on the Young

A boy who begins drinking before reaching the age of 15 is four times likely to develop alcoholism than one who begins drinking at age 21.  The bodies of boys in their teens are still in the developing stage and therefore alcohol can inflict severe damage on their physical and mental being.

Anyone can get hooked on drugs (alcohol is drug); be it legal or prohibited; they are within reach, affordable to both affluent and marginalized sector of society, within your circle of friends, members of the family, classmates, colleagues, business associates, neighborhood and the like.  “Pakisama” or just go with the trend “coz it’s cool” as they say it, most often will get you hooked finally to the drug and before realizing, it had  cost you much more than what you had bargained for.  Always, regrets come too late.

*Pleasurable and Reinforcing Effects

While it is true that few drugs produce desirable effects, it also has adversed effects,  depending on the physiological condition of the person especially when doses are increased.  Abusive intake of alcohol can lead to distorted thinking, agitation and disturbed behavior(hallucinations).  It can also impair memory and cognition.  Moreover, Alcohol, when taken with some drugs, can be extremely dangerous, sometimes even fatal:  alcohol with hypnotics, sedatives and tranquilizers is fatal.

*What does Alcohol do to your Body?

There is a misconception that Alcohol is not a drug.  But the truth of the matter is Alcohol is a  widely-used drug in our society and the danger lies in the misuse of the drug because of the damages that it can cause to human body:

•    Alcohol is not a stimulant but actually a sedative-depressant of the central nervous system

•    It is capable of rupturing veins

•    It destroys brain cells by causing the withdrawal of necessary water from them

•    It depletes the body of vitamins B1,B2,B6,B12, Folic acid, VitC, Zinc and magnesium

•    4 drinks a day are capable of causing organ damage

•    It can hamper the liver’s ability to process fat

•    The more time alcohol is retained in your blood, the more damage it can inflict on your brain cells

•    Alcoholism is the chief cause of vitamin deficiency. …..to be continued
