Beer doesn’t affect me. How often have you heard someone say this? The truth is if someone is saying beer does not affect them then they probably have a problem with alcohol abuse. Any type of alcohol will affect anyone who drinks it. Alcohol consumption slows your reflexes to the point that if you are driving, by the time you realize you need to hit the brake, it may be too late. This could have disastrous consequences. Your reaction time is slowed with the consumption of just one beer.
If you find yourself saying that beer does not affect you, then you should consider that you may have a problem with alcohol abuse and need to look for some treatment. Alcohol related deaths account for a large section of deaths in this country and alcohol abuse can affect not only the person doing the consuming but also family workers, fellow workers, and those in the other car during an accident.
Alcohol abuse can also be very costly, when you consider attorney fees, court costs and probation fees associated with an arrest. If a car is involved, you may also see a drastic rise in insurance costs.
