Consequences of Drinking Too Much Beer
A glass of beer on occasion is not likely to harm your health, but drinking too much can cause short-term and long-term consequences..
Keeping your intake moderate allows you to enjoy beer without putting yourself or others in danger. If you feel you have a drinking problem and consistently drink too much beer, contact your doctor who can assist you in finding help.
“The most obvious result of drinking too much beer is that you are likely to become drunk. When this happens, you are more likely to make poor judgment calls, your vision and speech are negatively effected, your impulses slow and you may experience disturbed balance”
These issues can cause you to fall down, engage in illegal behavior or have unprotected sex, all of which can result in injury, health complications and even jail.
Getting behind the wheel of a car after a few too many beers puts you and the other drivers and passengers on the road at risk of injury or death. Taking a ride from someone else who is also drunk poses the same dangers.
Every minute a person is injured in a drunken driving accident and each year an average of 10,839 people die in a car accident where one of the drivers was under the influence, reports Mothers Against Drunk Driving. If you have had too many beers, call a taxi, a family member or a friend who can get you home safely.
