Drink responsibly daily?

When you haven’t had alcohol for a day, you suffer withdrawal symptoms: The road you are driving on begins to move up and down wavy and zigzagging; bright sparks drop down from your forehead; your body aches like it is starving.  Signs that you’re an alcoholic.

Everyone hereabouts has five vacation days ahead starting today.   Many can spend these days without drinking alcoholic drinks, but too many others will be with friends who will bully them into getting drunk.  If you really want to drink responsibly as the alcohol ads keep reminding you, and not contribute to the wealth of distillery owners, this Guide sent in by BABA-Mail for you, below excerpted:

Don’t wait until you see the pile of empty bottles of gin and  beer, before  you wondered how you and your friends managed to do all that drinking in only one week. Or maybe you have waken up hung over one morning  and really regretted having had those drinks the night before? Or you had to admit to  the police you were driving your motorcycle carelessly  because you were “nakainom” with friends. (Nakainom means against your will and better judgment, you allowed another to force your mouth open to pour intoxicants into your mouth--that is what nakainom means. It might be a good idea to think about your alcohol consumption.

Cutting down on your alcohol intake has many feel-good benefits:  It’s good for your health, will help you lose weight, will significantly lower the risk of developing diseases such as cancer, heart, or liver disease, and the chance of getting thrown off your car or motorcycle for DUI (Driving Under the Influence of alcohol).  Furthermore, decreasing your alcohol consumption can be great for your relationships and can even have a positive impact on your sex life. Plus you don’t risk exposing your family to a driver (you) who is slightly impared for DUI. Admit it.  How often have you driven for your family from a gathering after you have had at least 3 beers?  (Which is equivalent to three jiggers (1.5 oz/jigger)  of whiskey/vodka/gin which is enough to dull your reflexes. 

Alcohol enters your bloodstream as soon as you take your first sip, and its immediate effects can appear within just 10 minutes. As you continue to drink, you increase your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level, which is the amount of alcohol present in your bloodstream. The higher your BAC, the more impaired you become by alcohol’s effects. These effects include:  Reduce inhibitions, Slurred speech, Motor impairment, Confusion, Memory problems, Concentration problems, Coma, Breathing problems, Death.

Other risks of drinking can include: Car crashes and other accidents (In 2014, alcohol-impaired driving fatalities accounted for just under 10,000 deaths); Risky behavior;  Violent behavior; Suicide and homicide.  While an alcohol problem is harmful at any age, it’s even more harmful in the elderly. The impact of alcohol-related injuries is much more severe, the risk of harmful medication interactions is much greater, and the physical effects of alcohol are more debilitating.

According to a CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention), the cost of excessive alcohol use in the US reached $249 billion in 2010, or roughly $2.05 per alcoholic beverage. And this is in the USA where advertising alcoholic drinks is illegal.  It must be a lot worse in the Philippines where ever other commercial in media is begging the listener to get drunk...  pushing alcoholic drinks... “Drink! Drink! Drink!” The researchers found that most of these costs resulted from losses in workplace productivity (72% of the total cost), healthcare expenses for treating problems caused by excessive alcohol consumption (11% of total), law enforcement and other criminal justice expenses (10%), and losses from motor vehicle crashes related to excessive alcohol usage (5%).

In the US, a standard drink is an alcoholic beverage that contains 0.6 fluid ounces (14 grams) of pure alcohol. That equates to around 1.2 tablespoons of pure alcohol.

The following are generally considered the equivalent of one standard drink: 12 oz. of beer or wine cooler;  5 oz. of table wine; 3-4 oz. of fortified wine (sherry or port); 1.5 oz. of brandy, whiskey, gin, vodka etc.  The above examples are approximates because many brands and types of alcoholic drinks vary in actual alcohol content. Check the label for the percentage of alcohol content.

Not only does alcohol have a negative impact on our bodies, but it also has an adverse effect on the economy.  According to a CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention), the cost of excessive alcohol use in the US reached $249 billion in 2010, or roughly $2.05 per alcoholic beverage. And this is in the USA where advertising alcoholic drinks is illegal.  It must be a lot worse in the Philippines where ever other commercial in media is begging the listener to get drunk...  pushing alcoholic drinks... “Drink! Drink! Drink!” The researchers found that most of these costs resulted from losses in workplace productivity (72% of the total cost), healthcare expenses for treating problems caused by excessive alcohol consumption (11% of total), law enforcement and other criminal justice expenses (10%), and losses from motor vehicle crashes related to excessive alcohol usage (5%).

Begin by looking at how much alcohol you consume at home. You might drink a lot more than you think on an average night in, especially if you like to have a drink while watching some television.  Remove the alcoholics from your ref.  Try replacing any alcohol in your fridge with soft drinks or water.  The supermarket shelves are packed with upmarket cordials. smoothies, and fizzy drinks. Entertaining some guests and want to impress? Try something slightly different and serve up a nice selection of non-alcoholic mocktails.  Luckily for us, these days the soft drink option doesn’t need to be dull, since the supermarket shelves are packed with upmarket cordials. smoothies, and fizzy drinks. Entertaining some guests and want to impress? Try something slightly different and serve up a nice selection of non-alcoholic mocktails.

Remember that home measures are often a lot bigger than that which you’d get when you’re out. Be aware of this before you pour your favorite drink into a goldfish bowl sized glass. Buying small wine glasses or an alcohol measure are great ways of making sure that you don’t drink more than you intend to.  Before going out, it’s very important to decide how many alcoholic beverages you’re going to enjoy. Pace is also very important; rather than downing three-four drinks in an hour, it’s a lot wiser to enjoy a few drinks over the course of a few hours.

Those who find themselves drinking too much may need to examine their social circles to see if excessive drinking is being encouraged. A good friend or a family member should always be happy to try to help you cut back on drinking.   If drinking has become a big part of your life, try doing other activities during those times when you’d usually have a drink. Take up a hobby, begin an exercise program, make new friends, or spend more time with your family. find something that you really enjoy doing so that you can use it to occupy the time where you would usually be drinking.

Chances are that you will find yourself in a situation in which someone is going to offer you a drink or expect you to drink with them as you have done so in the past. Therefore, you need to learn how to politely say “no thank you,” and really mean it. Say it quickly and firmly so that you don’t have time to change your mind.  Thinking about the benefits of feeling and being healthy can actually make people drink in moderation or avoid alcohol altogether.

Start by putting together a list of ways in which cutting down on alcohol will make you feel better. Post the list where you can see it each day.  Some people find that alcohol helps them drop off to sleep but, in reality, as this study concluded, it actually affects the quality of your sleep. When you drink too much, you spend less of the night in a deep, restorative slumber. To add to this, you’re more likely to wake up early and find it hard to drop off again.

Once you have cut back on alcohol, you should start to notice your sleep improving. This can have a knock-on benefit for everything, ranging from your mood to your ability to concentrate.

Alcohol contains a chemical substance known as ethanol which is able to pass freely through cell membranes. When blood, containing excessive amounts of ethanol reaches the brain, the ethanol enters the brain cells where it acts as a central nervous system depressant. Ethanol can attach itself to nerve receptors, and particularly glutamate, making it less active. In its active form, glutamate excites the neurons. However, when it isn’t active, the neurons are less excitable, therefore the body’s response to external stimuli becomes slow and sluggish. Furthermore, ethanol also attaches itself to gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) and activates the GABA receptors. The activation of these receptors slows down the brain and induces a feeling of calm, leading to somnolence. This is why alcohol makes you lethargic and decreases your ability to concentrate fully. Start drinking less, and it shouldn’t be too long before you notice that you have more energy and better concentration levels.
