Its considered “normal” in society that with every celebration, there must be rum. Alcohol consumption is more than just a regular habit in most cultures but more of a religion to many.
People go out partying all the time and find lots of excuses to drink but do they know they are destroying their bodies? Slowly but surely alcohol is poisoning your body leading closer to an untimely death. There are many reasons quitting alcohol will improve your life but I will list 5 below.
1.YOU WILL SAVE MORE MONEY
This one is the easiest to notice. When you stop going out, you don’t have to worry about spending a boat load of money on stuff you don’t need. You won’t have to worry about trying to impress people who don’t care about you. You most definitely won’t have to spend your pay check on expensive drinks at the club. Its all on you my friend.
2.YOUR BRAIN WILL WORK BETTER
Once you stop drinking, that blurry feeling you get will become a thing of the past. No more headaches, hangovers and every other depressing shit that comes with it. Alcohol is also proven to have a strong link to anxiety and depression. Lots of people believe the myth of “drinking away the pain” when in fact it does the opposite.
3. BETTER SKIN
Admit it, You look like shit when you’re wasted. Sometimes we forget how we used to look when we didn’t drink, and how much our facial features have deteriorated from drinking. Get used to hearing “you look great” from your family and friends!
4. HAPPIER LIVER
In addition to your skin being clearier, your liver will also repair itself. This greatly lowers the risk of liver diseases that from overtime from heavy alcohol consumption. Many people have died from liver diseases directly linked to alcohol so its safe to say to play it safe.
5. REDUCES THE RISK OF CANCER
Heavy drinkers have 10-15 times higher risk of developing these cancers than those who do not drink. However, the overall risk increases after just 1 drink a day for women or 2 for men. (A drink is defined as 12 ounces of regular beer, 5 ounces of wine, or 1.5 ounces of 80-proof liquor.) Higher breast cancer risk has been associated with just a few drinks a week, so the risk is not limited to heavy drinking.
Be aware of these things the next time you look at a glass of Hennessey and make a choice. No one is stopping you but the right choice is always available. Do it before its too late.
