The abuse of alcoholic beverages can cause a person to become an alcoholic. Underage drinking is illegal and harmful, but that does not stop minors from partying. Alcoholics can cause emotional pains throughout the family causing the families to suffer. Many people enjoy drinking but very few people understand the harm it is doing to the health of their bodies, and how it can ruin their lives. Alcoholism can have a negative effect on a person’s overall character, health, and morals.
Alcohol has been known to tear apart families, because in some cases, a dad has had too many drinks and abuses someone in the family. Whether it be a kid, or a spouse, if they were not intoxicated with alcohol this event could likely be avoided. Alcohol makes the user make rash decisions and decide to do things they would not normally do. For example, a less violent father. A father typically would not beat his children unless they disobeyed him and he would discipline them.
Consequently, alcoholics tend to overreact to unpleasant situations by using aggression. Furthermore, with excessive alcohol consumption, alcoholics lose their capacity to exercise self-control over their emotions and feelings. Very often, alcohol consumption becomes a means for them to unleash pent-up negative feelings. For other alcoholics, alcohol is a way for them to bury their negative feelings of anger, guilt and depression. Therefore, their general state of mind is moody and hostile, leading to increased chances of aggressive behavior at the slightest provocation (Graham, Wells, & West, 1997, p. 627).

The Law should avoid at age 18 to 20 because of the unsafe activity alcohol can drink to people which drink and get drunk from it for their lack of knowledge in alcohol and fail to control themselves. Alcohol is a dangerous drink for the person and to the others when abused which young adults at age 18 probably will do if the Law would be changed to 18.
Alcohol inhibits not only our daily bodily functions but our mind as well. Alcoholism leads to times of withdrawal, low self-esteem, and an overall unwillingness to be part of society. It can turn the gentlest person into a raving psychopath without them even knowing it or if they do know, they refuse to admit it. Alcoholism manipulates the way we think and the way we react in common everyday situations. Minor problems are blown out of proportion while major problems are faced with anger, resentment, and often physical force.
There is a lack of inner stability with which to face life’s problems in a realistic manner (AL-Anon). As the disease of alcoholism sets in, the family is forced to make an unspoken decision—to leave the alcoholic or to stay and adapt to his illness. Because they do not want to disrupt their own lives or leave a love one, they deny the problem and try to adapt to the pressures and problems that alcoholism brings. Typically, as alcoholism takes over, the alcoholic becomes increasingly preoccupied with drinking. This can lead to spending less time at home, and neglecting their responsibility to the family.
By drinking you become dependent on the alcohol and then you tend to put that before your family and friends. Getting your next drink is all you are thinking about. Parents who drink a lot may treat their children badly. They might ignore them; they might abuse them physically and verbally. They may even make them feel as if they are not worth very much.
Drinking alcohol affects the human body, mind and life in a very bad way, and just like drugs; alcoholics have to deal with the negative effects of drinking alcohol. Effects of alcohol are many and are all bad. There is not one good effect of excessive alcohol drinking, except what an alcoholic considers a good feeling after getting drunk. The alcoholics drink for many reasons, but the results are all the same. Alcohol has very bad effects on all human body organs; it causes disease and some of those diseases are dangerous and even fatal, and the most common diseases re... ... middle of paper ... ...is very costly and it damages a person’s financial future.
This is the reason why alcoholism is so difficult to treat; because there is no one they trust who can help them get over the rough patch. Drinking alcohol is a very serious situation that could potentially damage a family based solely on the choice of one person; it is a very selfish act and should not be done to an excess. Overindulging in alcohol can severely affect the children of the alcoholic. The child may become embarrassed and refuse help from others, they may become involved with criminal activities when older, and they most likely will develop a drinking problem themselves at a young age. When sons and daughters become involved with a parent’s drinking problem, it becomes more than just a personal issue for the parent.
