Once you start to cut out on your alcohol intake, you will notice many benefits.
You Will Save Your Brain
Heavy drinking may have extensive and far-reaching effects on the brain, ranging from simple ‘slips’ in memory to permanent and debilitating conditions that require lifetime custodial care. Even moderate drinking can cause memory lapses, and on the other extreme, binge drinking can result in severe memory loss. However, even alcoholics who have already experienced cognitive impairment, can regain at least some brain function within a year of abstinence.
This may seem obvious but you may be surprised how much money you will save! Say goodbye to that “sick feeling” over how much money you wasted on drinks. The best part, besides being happy with your self-control, is that you can spend that new-found money on something else MORE valuable, or even save it for that special item you’ve always wanted to have in your life! Try to work out how much money you spend each week on alcoholic drinks, and see how much you could save over the course of a year.
