Does Alcohol Affects The Brain? by desperatem(m): 8:27pm On Feb 18, 2012
To me i think alcohol affects the brain and makes the brian work abnormally. Although no one ever told me and neither do i read it but i have confirmed it from about 5 people who take excess of alcohol two to three times in a week. There behavior is so abnormal and there sense of judgement is dead. Before i think maybe my friends who take the alcohol are not brainy initially but my new pal dare has made me confirmed that anyone who takes alcohol has a little mental issues. Dare utterance was so bad after his hangover. I can't narrate the whole story here, i just want to confirm from doctors and experienced ones in the house.

Not only the brain but also the mind and body systems.

@OP
its called an HANGOVER. although people sleep off after being drinking, it doesnt mean that the alcohol has completely left their system when they wake up. it takes a while to "clean off" and therefore many people are still hungover well after the night is over.

with alcohol, there is no such thing as "mental issue", its just how alcohol works on the system. . . . . . . . and unless it is abused in excessive manners, there is no obvious side effects to it, ask Jesus (whoobviously drank wine and could still fulfill his duties)!

My friend behave like mentally infirm person even when he is not high. During arguement his points does not correspond with the topic. His sense of judgement is bad. He can't assimilate. So i think alcohol damages the brain gradually

^^ if that is the case then we can ALL conclude that alcohol is not the problem here, and that you friend has a serious mental illness, that should be properly checked by doctors.

Alco does nothing, perception does everything.

Is a lie, it does not afffect the brain nagatively, rather it makes it work optimally. During my high school days, I used to take at least 2 liters of palm wine before sitting for my terminal exams, and I always come out top of my class.

Alcohol inhibits the inhibitory center thereby making people to feel high and sometimes antisocial. A little alcohol is good for the heart especially red wine, but too much of it can damage your liver, heart and other vital organs in your body. It also increases libido while reducing sexual performance. The guy described above has a mental problem which may or may not be caused by alcohol (alcoholic psychosis or encephalopathy), he needs to be evaluated by a psychiatrist.

AlCoHoL has no side effEct except when taken in excess (hangover), it makes me relax and think straight, to me being sober is a taboo #peace

Which type of alcohol are we talking about b/cos we have many
there is one call Monkey-tail

It can take your brain from pack to drive and accelerate it,
so the velocity will determine what will happen to your brain.

Alchohol is a sedative/depressant. Sedatives/depressants slowdown the Central Nervous System which includes the brain. Too much of it may even cause your brain to shutdown.
Re: Does Alcohol Affects The Brain? by Pukkah: 8:30pm On Feb 20, 2012
It looks like your incoherent friend has started showing signs of mental instability. This is beyond alcohol and he should be advised or made to keep an appointment with a psychiatrist.

It is very good for the brain. In fact they use alcohol for preservation of organs from spoiling in biology labs.
