Liver damage is a big problem. It can increase your risk of getting liver damage.Alcoholics have trouble recognizing and avoiding dangerous situations because the area of their brain that is used to appreciate those kinds of concerns is functioning at a reduce level, stunting their ability to perceive danger.Alcohol consumption can induce sleep disorders by disrupting the sequence and duration of sleep states and by altering total sleep time.Prolonged, heavy use of alcohol can lead to addiction (alcoholism). Sudden cessation of long term, extensive alcohol intake is likely to produce withdrawal symptoms, including severe anxiety, tremors, hallucinations and convulsions.
