Beer and Fireworks = Bad Combination

Beer and Fireworks = Bad Combination

This is just one of the many reasons why I don't drink and why I highly discourage anyone else from drinking. Beer makes someone lose their selves for a while. Beer is a very good CNS depressant so your thinking and good judgement are impaired. This is the reason why there are so many drunk people out there who does stupid things like murder, rape, theft, and just plainly making a fool of themselves by lying unconscious on street corners. Not to mention that most vehicular related accidents are caused by drunk drivers.

There are so many health risks that I could give you that is related to drinking.
  • Increased risk of accidents
  • strokes caused by bleeding
  • medication interactions - including non-prescription drugs
  • breast cancer - alcohol increases estrogen levels, which is a risk for premenopausal women
  • birth defects - fetal alcohol effect (FAE) and low birth weight
  • liver cirrhosis
  • heavier drinking - many people, such as recovering alcoholics, can't maintain moderation

Not to mention that drinking could actually lead to an alcohol induced neurosis or dementia. I'll blog about this in a separare blog.

So for alcoholics out there limit drinking. For those thinking of starting drinking, don't start.
