Obsessive Drinking: The Sobering Effects Of Alcohol

Everyone likes to have a good time and have a few drinks now and then. Go to any cool party or gathering and there will probably be some great drinks with an open bar, at the least. It's true that having a drink or two is usually harmless. But now that the legal limit for driving continues to be lowered, you don’t actually have to be drunk or even tipsy to get a DUI, as many have unfortunately found out. Everywhere we look - there is a resounding message that drinking alcohol is always fun and harmless. Sometimes, it is. But often, it really is not and because we are bombarded with these positive messages about alcohol all day long, it is hard to look at it for what it really can be.

Drunk is Not Sexy
Most who is feel great after a few drinks have a sky high confidence level. The phrase feel no pain is an actuality much of the time. No matter how good it feels, the truth is that being drunk is the furthest thing from sexy that there could be - unless the other person is drunk too. There is no doubt that two or more drunk people spell trouble. There is a great deal of risk involved when getting into a car drunk - the risk of having an accident. Any state official from your Dallas sheriff to your PA DUI lawyer will affirm these facts that no one wants to think about. So rather than waiting until the last minute when defenses and judgment level is no where to be found - be prepared ahead of time.

The Truth Can Hurt
Drinking too much can have some really gnarly effects that few people consider. Being unsteady is really not the half of it. If most people really knew how alcohol is affecting them, they may never get drunk again. Some people, for instance, don’t even know how they really are acting after a few too many. In fact, it’s a touchy subject - many times friends won’t even mention how moody or hard to be around their friends get, for fear of offending their friends. Instead, they just grin and bear it, knowing it will wear off eventually. Or will it?

Drinking Responsibly
All the really hip alcohol companies have that little blurb at the end of their ad that says please drink responsibly. But who really knows that that means? Many people think it just means not to get caught being over the limit. At the risk of being a buzz-killer, it is time that someone told you the truth. While alcohol is good for social gatherings and celebrations - it can also involve unemployment, ruined relationships, death, child abuse and suicide. These topics are never covered in any ad - as would be expected.

Responsibility has more to do with the overall effect that something could have on the physical, mental and emotional factors. These factors can affect you for the rest of your life. For instance, alcohol makes you age faster - meaning you could have more wrinkles. It can lower your overall health and cause poor liver function. You could even die sooner. A DUI incident may kill you, someone you love and strangers - like someone’s child. Imagine having to live with that for the rest of your life. Not to mention - you could lose your job, get kicked out of school, wreck your car and your finances. You could also cause a terrible lifelong injury for yourself and others. Looking at it from that point of view, puts in perspective how even the most harmless amounts of alcohol could affect you in the long run.
In reality, when advertisers say drink responsibly - those serious issues are what they are referring to. It’s not just about making sure you’re under the limit for a DUI. They know that there are many consequences surrounding too much alcohol - so they warn people without really telling them exactly what they are talking about. This is because the facts are, pun intended - way too sobering.
