A shot of truth


When does drinking become a problem

What are the effects of alcohol on the human body?

The effects of alcohol vary depending on a person’s weight, age, and sex. Too much alcohol over a short space of time can lead to serious health problems such as liver cirrhosis or heart disease. It’s common to underestimate how many drinks are too many or risk developing a dependency. The difference between being able to have a drink at dinner and having an addiction is often in the number of drinks consumed.
