What are the effects of alcohol and how it controls your life.
Effects of alcohol on your mind and consciousness will affect how you handle life's situations.
To understand this we must know what alcohol does to our brain. On the short term it can cause difficulty walking, blurred vision, slurred speech, slowed reaction times and impaired memory. Anything in moderation is manageable.
People who abuse alcohol experience effects in the brain which are caused by altering the brain's chemistry levels of neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers that transmit the signals throughout the body that control thought process, behavior and emotion.
When we start to abuse it, we start to experience changes in who we are. This is what I want to talk about.
We may believe that we are kind, loving and gentle. Effects of alcohol on our thought process is something we do not see until it is too late. The effects on our job and home life can be devastating.
The long term effects on our children and immediate family can and will cause long term damage. We all want our children to grow up whole and well adjusted but alcohol abuse will affect their development. The loving person we want to be, ends up being the person they hate.
Unless we change our thoughts and start to love ourselves we can not love anyone.
Besides all of these facts, do we really want to damage our relationships with friends, co-workers, and all the people who trust us and look up to us? Do we really want to destroy our families trust in us to the point where we can not mend it?
Getting help or admitting we are helpless to quit our addictions is not weak. It is just the opposite. It takes a strong person to admit he or she needs help and then follow thru with it.
Getting help and becoming our God selves will put us back on the path to completeness.
