are more prone to alcoholism than others. Many alcoholics are artistic,
creative, intelligent, and compassionate with inquisitive minds. For an
intelligent, sensitive person, alcohol is an easy escape, numbing the
mind from the pain of a harsh world.
Science has proved that alcohol
is a carcinogen and mutagen. Research studies have found that even one
drink per day can double the risk of developing breast cancer. Alcohol
kills brain cells, degenerates the heart muscle, damages the liver, and
can deform an unborn child.
Alcohol causes a sharp mind to
become dull. Intoxication is the brain's response to being poisoned.
Concentrating and focus become work, trying to wallow through a mental
fog. How can God communicate with such a mind? Alcohol numbs the
conscience making it susceptible to degrading and sickening thoughts
that normally would appall us. Alcohol’s solvent properties seep into
the deepest recesses of the character, eroding purity, self-esteem,
honesty, integrity, faith and peace.
Alcohol halts spiritual growth.
If you turned to alcohol as a teen, then you will continue to have the
maturity of a teenager as long as you drink.
It is best to get a young
alcoholic into a teen
alcohol addiction treatment program as soon as possible time
before any more damage is done.
