How Alcohol
Affects the Liver

The liver is a vital organ, it has a wide range of functions which are necessary for survival. When a person drinks, the liver goes into “overdrive” to remove toxic substances out of the body. This puts excessive stress on the liver, and with the constant consumption of alcohol overtime, the liver begins to become inflamed and scarred. Once scar tissue develops around the liver, the liver becomes brittle and tough rather than soft and spongy, as it should be. As a result, the blood is unable to work its way through the liver and cirrhosis is a likely outcome. People who have cirrhosis of the liver are also likely to develop diabetes.

As alcohol is broken down in the liver. a number of potentially dangerous by-products are generated.

Alcohol can disrupt these connections quite quickly and lead to short-term effects such as impaired thinking and slowed reaction time. As little as one drink can disrupt how the brain works. Like liver damage, alcohol-related brain damage is hard to detect at early stages, and therefore, early treatment and intervention are very limited.

The effects of alcohol on the brain are often first characterized by increased vocal volume followed by a slight sway in your walk. Over time, more serious and damaging effects on brain function arise.
