Moreover, in addition to the 17.8 million people, several more million engage in dangerous drinking habits.

Because alcohol is legal there are more people who abuse it than illicit drugs, however alcohol is just as dangerous, if not more. Every time a person drinks to the point of intoxication they are causing harm to their body. Furthermore, when a person drinks too much alcohol they are more likely to engage in dangerous situations due to the drug’s effect of impairing a person’s judgment.

Alcohol related incidents are the third leading cause of death in America, this is mostly due to people making poor decisions while they are intoxicated. If a person continues to abuse alcohol, they will develop a dependency to the drug, and this will cause them to continually abuse alcohol because their body will go through withdrawal symptoms every time alcohol is not present in it.
