Health - Addictions

Do you need that daily tipple to start your day and end it too? You can't think straight and start feeling irritable until you've had your daily dose. Are you an addict who depends heavily on alcohol on a regular basis? Find out by answering the following questions:

1. Have you ever fainted after a couple of pegs?
2. Do you have health problems because of alcohol consumption?
3. Have you disregarded your medical problems and gone ahead with drinking?
4. Do you ever get a headache, feel nauseated or get irritated if you have not consumed your daily quota?
5. Have you ever had an argument or a fight with anybody after drinking?
6. Has your family been telling you to give up alcohol?
7. Have you ever felt guilty about consuming too much of alcohol?

If you have answered YES to 3 questions or more, then you definitely need some help.

Understanding the effects of an overdose of alcohol is the first step towards getting over this addiction:

PHYSICAL EFFECTS

Can lead to various kinds of cancers.

Kidney and liver problems

Alcohol causes birth defects

Leads to a slowdown in your reflexes

Can lead to hepatitis

Alcohol can cause brain damage

It even causes all kinds of digestive and gastric troubles

Too much of alcohol consumption may lead to nervous problems

Alcohol is also known to cause sleep problems

It can even lead to obesity

EMOTIONAL EFFECTS

It makes you lose temper, get angry without any reason and get irritated with people and things

It can lead to depression

It can cause family problems

It can lead to a decreasing work performance

You may find it difficult to concentrate

Can even lead to memory loss

Alcohol makes concentration difficult

So now that you know how even that one peg can affect you are you ready to take the next step?

The next step is to take POSITIVE ACTION towards GIVING UP ALCOHOL

Try to limit the intake and gradually give it up altogether

Whenever you make a drink put less of alcohol and more of the non-alcoholic mixer

Try to take smaller sips

Drink slowly

Eat more snacks while drinking as this will help you limit your intake and help it absorb faster too

Whenever you feel like a drink go for a walk or listen to some music or play any game you like

Never drink before or while driving or working

Never drink in front of your family

If it's a case of drowning your sorrows in a mug of beer, find a friend who is willing to listen

Last but the most important thing is to remember that it is your life and you only live once!

So throw that drink away, give up alcohol and take charge of your life.

One knows that modern life seems to be not very cheap, however people require cash for different issues and not every man earns big sums money. Thence to get good business loans and just short term loan will be good way out.

Currently sitting in the pub in Essex. After 2 years sober. That's 5 pints of Guinness,an counting.
I'm currently spending someone elses money, an my GF supports me as I lost my job through drinking.
What am I going to do about this?????
Take ONE day at a time.
If you THINK you have a problem, then you probably have one (that's the rule I live by)
Easyer said than done. It's easier than you think.
You ARE stronger than you think
set your self a target of "just for a day" an that's how I did 2 years!!
As I said, currently I'm relapsed, but I know know how to get sober an it's the " one day at a time philosophy.
Oh an get to AA. smilies/wink.gif
