Too much alcohol affects your speech, muscle coordination and vital centers of your brain. A heavy drinking binge may even cause a lifethreatening coma or death.
If you have problems with alcohol, you're more likely to also have problems with other substances. Excessive drinking can reduce your judgment skills and lower inhibitions, leading to poor choices and dangerous situations or behaviors, such as:
● Motor vehicle accidents and other types of accidents
● Domestic problems
● Poor performance at work or school
● Increased likelihood of committing violent crimes
