Binge Drinking, Alcohol Abuse, Alcohol Addiction: All Levels of Use Can Be Harmful
Having a glass of wine with dinner a couple of times a week is likely not harmful to your health. In fact, some say that a half a glass of red wine can even be beneficial. But when you drink more than four drinks in a sitting, you cross over into dangerous territory – binge drinking. Repeat it often and you risk doing serious damage to your liver and kidneys.
One of the worst effects of alcohol is the buildup of tolerance to the substance that turns into an alcohol addiction. Addiction can mean the loss of everything: your health, your family, your dreams, your personality – ultimately yourself.
