Risks of chronic heavy drinking

Researchers argue that serious harm can occur to the brain even without obvious sign of alcoholism.  These harms include impaired memory, decision-making, and regulation of emotions and anxiety.  Sometimes dementia is blamed for what alcohol has inflicted.  According to the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, these problems are less among men who consume no more than fourteen drinks a week and no more than four at one time and women who consume no more than seven drinks a week and no more than three at one time.
