Caption: An illustration depicting the effects of alcohol consumption on major organs in the body. Alcohol abuse can result in long term affects on the brain such as damaged neurons, impaired memory and personality disorders, along with short term affects such as loss of motor coordination and cognitive function. Long term drinking also affects heart health, resulting in conditions such as alcoholic cardiomyopathy, arrhythmia, coronary heart disease, strokes and high blood pressure. The liver eventually becomes damaged from filtering alcohol out of the blood, resulting in conditions such as cirrhosis which can eventually lead to liver failure. Alcohol abuse also increases the risk of stomach ulcers, inflammation and cancer within the digestive tract. Alcohol also has a diuretic effect, which increases urine volume and fluid loss. Both men and women's reproductive health may be affected by long term alcohol abuse with altered hormone levels, impotence in men
