How an alcoholic suffers – 5 suffering organs
Alas, drinking alcohol does not go unpunished for a person. Good health and alcohol dependence are not compatible things. So what organs in humans are affected primarily by alcohol?
It is the liver that bears the brunt of alcohol intake. Drinking people almost all suffer from fatty liver. Fatty degeneration, one might say, is the first stage of liver damage. This disease is curable, but absolute sobriety must be observed. In cases where there is no sobriety, fatty degeneration of the liver can turn into hepatitis, and then cirrhosis of the liver occurs. Liver cirrhosis is a disease in which irreversible changes occur in the liver tissue. The only way to prolong their own years of life in an alcoholic patient with cirrhosis of the liver is a complete rejection of alcohol.
Heart problems in an alcohol dependent person are a natural result of his hectic alcoholic life. Hypertensive heart disease, coronary artery disease, cardiosclerosis, etc., are the result of drinking alcohol for many years.
In alcoholics, the mucous membrane of the stomach and small intestine atrophies. Nutrients and vitamins in the gastrointestinal tract of a drinking person are poorly absorbed.
But unfortunately, these are not all stomach problems in drinking people. Peptic ulcer and acute pancreatitis are unfortunately very frequent companions of people who drink. In acute pancreatitis, an addict is obliged to quit alcohol as early as possible.
A drinking person’s memory deteriorates, he becomes emotionally unstable. Amnesia and dementia, alcoholic epilepsy and seizures, a person earns all this himself, consuming alcoholic beverages constantly and for many years.
A shattered psyche is an integral part of alcohol addiction. Irritability, mood swings, sleep disturbances, deceit, optionality. All this is the finale of the alcoholic’s life. A person who daily and for a long time uses “intoxicants”, degrades, suffers from delirium tremens and psychosis, loses touch with reality.
Summing up, we can say that over the years, a person dependent on alcohol turns into a deeply disabled person who needs outside care. But the social life of such a person has already been destroyed: he has no family, no good and loyal friends, neither his relatives nor his own children need him.
He approached such a sad ending himself, leading an alcoholic lifestyle for many years.
