Alcohol Intoxication

Alcohol intoxicationWhile getting a "buzz" from alcohol is fun for some people, alcohol intoxication is a process that may lead to problems with alcohol addiction and abuse. The intoxication is primarily caused by ethanol, which has depressive effects on certain areas of the brain, causing an altered state of mind. As more alcohol is consumed, the brain is less and less able to function normally. At some point, depending on body weight and alcohol tolerance - alcohol intoxication will end in death from alcohol poisoning. This is why alcoholism and not being able to control how much you drink can be such a serious problem. Not only are there symptoms that appear in your everyday life, there's also the chance of death by too much alcohol while seeking intoxication.

Signs of Alcohol Intoxication

Here are some of the major signs that someone might be under the influence of alcohol intoxication.

  • Impairments - From slurred speech to trouble walking and standing, alcohol intoxication will cause noticeable physical effects in most people.
  • Bad Judgment - Along with physical impairments when intoxicated, faulty judgment and making bad choices is another sign of intoxication.
  • Confusion - Someone who is disoriented and doesn't know where they are or how they got there may be under the influence of alcohol.

Dangers of Alcohol Intoxication

While the relaxed feeling is nice for a while, the side effects of continual alcohol intoxication far outweigh any benefits that may be seen in the short term. While other underlying mental disorders may make it more likely that someone becomes addicted to alcohol intoxication, there are other dangers involved with alcohol intoxication even if someone doesn't become addicted. For example, the lack of judgment can lead to all sorts of problems. From health problems to trouble at work or failing repeatedly at relationships, alcohol intoxication can have a negative effect on your life. The extreme result of alcohol intoxication is death from alcohol poisoning.
