Yes


alcohol is toxic to all tissues, and regular use of high doses of alcohol significantly shortens life. Skin and its component collagen is particularly affected by alcohol consumption. In addition, heavy drinkers are often heavy smokers, and smoking also results in the appearance of aging. The combination of smoking and drinking appears to accelerate the process.

A person can die from too much alcohol. Such a situation should be treated in an emergency department as quickly as possible. Any delay could prove disastrous. Call 911.

Does alcohol help to cure or reduce ulcer or aggravates it. otherwise what is the best treatment or prevention for it. thanks?

Ulcers Alcohol Cancer Diet Prevention Ulcer Ulceration

Stop alcohol


Alcohol would not help an ulcer, and may even aggravate it. You should see a doctor and possibly have a scope put down to see the ulcer and take a little sample of it to make sure it isn't a cancer. If it's a simple ulcer it will need some powerful acid reducing medication and a review of your diet. I hope that's helpful.

Once the alcohol is in the body, other than a trip to the ER, there is nothing one can do except wait for the liver to slowly detoxify the blood.

Best is not fast


There is no "best and fast" treatment for alcohol abuse. The treatment is to quit, often in a medical detox facility, and then join a support group such as AA or Celebrate Recovery. It takes time and support and lots of hard work but recovery is possible. If this is for you, seek out an AA or CR group TODAY!

If you ingested any amount of rubbing alcohol, have someone take you to the ER immediately. Rubbing alcohol is NOT the same as the alcohol in drinks and may cause serious, permanent, and even life-threatening health problems.

My 24 year old daughter is entering a alcohol treatment center this monday. they do not have a bed and this is their best estima tion of when one will be available. she experiences significant withdrawl symtoms when she abstains from alcohol completely.sh

Answered by:

Don't


Don't know the specifics of "significant withdrawal symptoms" that you mention (such as seizure, visual hallucinations). From a safety perspective she would best be seen by a doctor (on this weekend the emergency room for that matter) to cater temporary treatment to your daughter given the circumstances for now. There is always the risk of a breakthrough seizure or other serious withdrawals from alcohol with or without the continued use of alcohol or Xanax-like medications because the are a couple of things to consider too (such as sleep problems, amount of alcohol used, duration of alcohol misuse) plus I wouldn't detox someone on Xanax being that it is a very short acting sedative. In essence, err on the side of safety when the risk is great.
