When many people think about the problems that alcohol abuse can cause, they think about drunk driving and the effects it has. However, drunk driving is not the only problem alcohol abuse causes. Alcohol abuse can lead to a number of health conditions. In fact, alcohol abuse has been linked to at least 60 health conditions. Below is a list of the long-term effects of alcohol abuse.
Chronic alcohol abuse can lead to liver inflammation. This inflammation can eventually lead to a condition called cirrhosis. Cirrhosis causes scar tissue to build up in the liver. It is estimated that one out of 10 people who drink alcohol heavily will eventually develop cirrhosis. Keep in mind that women are more likely to develop cirrhosis than men.
Many forms of cancer have been linked to excessive alcohol consumption, including liver, breast, colon and prostate. The reason alcohol use can increase the risk of cancer is because the body converts it into acetaldehyde. The acetaldehyde is a carcinogen, or cancer-causing agent.
Suppresses the Immune System
Excessive alcohol intake can weaken the immune system. This will make it a lot easier for you to develop a serious illness. People who have a weak immune system are at an increased risk for developing illnesses like pneumonia. In fact, getting drunk decreases the body's ability to fight off illnesses for 24 hours.
Excessive alcohol intake can make it easier for the platelets to clot. This can cause blood clots to form, which can increase the risk of heart attack and stroke. There was a study done in 2005 by a team of scientists at Harvard University that involved heart attack survivors. The scientists found that people who drank heavily were twice as likely to die.
Alcohol abuse can also lead a heart condition called cardiomyopathy. This condition causes the heart muscle to weaken, and the heart will eventually fail.
Many people drink to help themselves feel better when they are depressed. However, studies have shown that alcohol abuse can actually worsen depression. On the other hand, many heavy drinkers notice their symptoms improve after they quit drinking.
Alcohol abuse can wreak havoc on a person's life and health. It can cause a heart attack, cirrhosis, depression and cancer. It may also weaken the immune system.

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is defined as a mood disorder that affects one's interaction and relationships with others. It generally develops during adolescence and persists into adulthood. It has been seen that those with a traumatic history of neglect or emotional, physical or sexual abuse are more prone to developing it. Though it affects people varyingly, these are some symptoms that help diagnose BPD.
1. Emotional instability - Intense feelings of rage, sorrow, anger, guilt and emptiness or loneliness are experienced by some sufferers of BPD. Extreme mood swings, lasting for a short span of time, are common in BPD. They may also have issues with their self-image where they cannot place themselves and don't know what they feel about themselves or who they are.
2. Disturbing thoughts - One may experience disturbed thinking and the range of severity is rather wide. One may question his or her existence and need constant reassurance to believe other, or hear voices that tell one to harm oneself or others. In some cases, hallucination and developing delusional beliefs become a common phenomenon that greatly upset the mental condition of the sufferer.
3. Impulsive behavior - Indulging in impulsive behavior is a common sign of BPD. Those suffering from BPD may develop suicidal tendencies and threaten to self-harm. Partaking in risky and irresponsible behavior such as gambling, drinking, drug abuse, having unprotected sex with strangers, going on unrestrained shopping sprees and shoplifting are not uncommon for those with BPD.
4. Intense but unstable relationships - Sufferers of BPD live in a fear of abandonment and feel that the people they love might leave them. They make all possible efforts to prevent being left alone. They may beg, cling and track their loved ones to avoid being left alone. The opposite may also occur and sufferers might feel that they are being smothered by others. This results in actively pushing away loved ones. A combination of these feelings leads sufferers to give out mixed signals which is confusing and often hurts them and their loved ones.
