Long-Term Effects of Alcohol Consumption

Many people enjoy an occasional drink with friends or family without becoming concerned about the negative effects that alcohol can have on a person over long periods of time. While light to moderate drinking can actually be beneficial to your health, the long-term effects of heavy alcohol consumption can be detrimental to the health and well-being of consumers, and it can be important for anyone that regularly partakes in a drink to understand these potential dangers.

Frustratingly, adverse health outcomes are not the only way that alcohol can affect you. You can also be charged with alcohol-related crimes, such as DWI. If you have been charged with an alcohol-related crime, you may be in need of professional legal counsel in order to avoid the damages associated with a conviction. Contact the Raleigh DWI defense attorneys at the Law Office of Jim Black at 919-600-4609 to discuss your case with a knowledgeable lawyer today.

Potential Long-Term Effects

Everyone reacts to alcohol consumption differently, and the long-term effects of this type of repeated behavior can vary from person to person. However, some of the most common effects of long-term, heavy alcohol consumption include:

  • Blood clotting issues and anemia
  • Kidney failure
  • Brain damage
  • Cirrhosis of the liver
  • Muscle atrophy
  • Memory loss

Unfortunately, it is not just these long-term effects that can vary. Because of the variations in each person’s body composition and tolerance, innocent individuals may be wrongfully charged with driving while intoxicated. With the assistance of a qualified legal team, you may be able to disprove these accusations and clear your name.
