Alcohol affects pretty well all parts of your body, the main causes of death from too much alcohol are damaged brains, heart, liver, immune system and pancreas.
Alcohol changes the way the brain looks and works. These disruptions can change mood and behaviour, and make it harder to think clearly and move normally.
Teenagers who take drugs and drink alcohol a lot often suffer from depression, weight loss, headaches and not being able to sleep.
Alcohol is worse for younger people because their bodies are still growing and alcohol damages your brain development and your bone development.

The mental effects from alcohol depends on the person and how much they drink, if it is a normal amount there should be a little feeling of relaxation, which is why many people drink more and more ( to feel more relaxed.)
People who drink more heavily will most likely experience diseases in some parts of the body, blackouts, sexual problems and relationship problems which effect your mind by making you want to drink more and more and tricks your brain by making it think it will relax you.
