Drinking in Excess Equals Excess Pounds
There are a lot of Americans who just don't know when to stop hitting the spirits.
And it's maddening to see family members drink their life away, going to an early grave many years before they should have; we've seen that in our family far too many times - so we do have a bias against spirits - specifically in abusing them as well as tempting them should alcoholism run in the genes.
If they do - then you're playing with a live rattlesnake.
Some individuals drink until they stink to high heaven, wallowing in their own stench and vomit.
Yes, this is pretty graphic - but drinking has become the 'in-thing' in the modern day world with more and more individuals adding alcohol to their daily routine as a relaxing method of unwinding.
Doing such on a daily basis is a good indication or signal that trouble may be ahead in the form of an addition. As with most habit forming substances, the individual may not recognize that they are quickly making their favorite 'something or another' a habit.
If you find that you are getting tipsy from drinking, then you're over-indulging. It's time to sit back, take a good long look in the mirror and re-evaluate your friendship with any habit forming brew.
And when it comes to abusing alcohol, it's a very sad situation, particularly for the liver. It's also a sure-fire method for putting on unwanted pounds. Just look at the caloric content of common alcoholic mixed drinks in our data chart below.
