Alcohol can impact your body from the second you start drinking. The effects of constant drinking alcohol can take its toll. Alcohol has many effects on the body including, blackouts, hallucinations, and slurred speech. The results that I listed are only the starting effects. Alcohol can also cause problems as severe as liver damage, lung infections, and cancer. Alcohol is also a problem behind the wheel. While consuming alcohol, your equilibrium goes crazy, and people who are “drunk” have a hard time distinguishing up and down, as well as left to right. All in all, alcohol has many adverse effects on the body, so when your friend asks if you want a drink, say no because it can become addictive.
