The long-term benefits of cutting down on alcohol will include:
Frame of mind - Hangovers usually make one feel uncomfortable and weak, but there is a connection between excessive drinking and despair. Minimizing alcohol consumption can improve your overall temporary mind state, while further drinking can exacerbate the situation when feeling low or uneasy and worried.
Rest- Drinking impacts your sleep. Despite the ability of alcohol of helping people sleep quickly, it can also disturb your sleep patterns and prevent you from sleeping deeply. You will feel more revitalised the next morning when you minimize alcohol consumption.
Behaviour - Your behaviour and judgment could be impaired by heavy drinking. Under the influence of heavy drinking, your reasoning and calm may be lost. Drinking can cause short term loss of memory while heavy drinking may impair memories in the long term too.
Heart - Your heart could become enlarged if you drink heavily over an extended period. Abstinence is all you need to curb this situation because there is no escape from these symptoms.
Immune system - your immune system can also be affected if you have been drinking regularly. The danger of contacting infectious diseases is more on chronic alcoholics.
