You do!: Alcohol kills brain cells and you have killed quite a few. To preserve the remaining brain cells, quit drinking while you are ahead. Drinking alcohol puts you at risk of liver disease, pancreatitis , accidents, and multiple types of cancer. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
