Are You Becoming a Cheap Drunk?


Drink Less As We Age – CPRescue

Fortunately or unfortunately the answer is yes.  A recent study confirms that as we age our resistance to alcohol begins to weaken. Our bodies begin to retain less water than when were younger and we metabolize alcohol at a much slower rate. This means the alcohol stays in our bodies for a longer period of time and gives us a higher blood alcohol percentage.

More importantly, alcohol can make certain age-related health problems worse, like high blood pressure, diabetes, liver ailments and memory problems. Because older people typically take more medications, they have an increased risk of an alcohol-drug interaction, which can cause confusion, instability while walking, nausea or other problems.

Realize as you age you won’t be able to drink as you did when you were younger, but on the positive side it won’t cost you as much to get to that happy state. So let’s enjoy one of the few benefits of getting older. And please never drink and drive!
