1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

Actually, this is one of the late side effects of alcoholism.
Did you see old alcoholics who walk mornings there legs very carefully, with wide base, slow, not strait? - this is probably is a sign of the cerebellar damage. Some of the neuropsychiatrists believe that cerebellum also"shapes" thinking.
