Alcohol Dementia

There are many negative affects of long-term alcoholism. Alcohol dementia is a condition that can occur after a person drinks excessively for a very long period of time. Its symptoms are problems in the brain, including personality changes, memory loss, diminished ability to think, and learning difficulties. Alcohol consumption affects brain cells, and the damage can build up over time until it results in brain damage. Poor nutrition also adds to the effects.

The most apparent symptoms of alcohol dementia are memory loss and confusion. Other than these two major problems, the person often appears to be very normal in other ways. For example, they can completely retain the ability to think logically. Sufferers seem to have a sort of amnesia, in which they can completely lose their short-term memory. They repeat the same things over and over again, because they’re unable to remember what just happened a few seconds before. They will be able to recall things that happened much earlier in their lives, but not what they did the day before. For this reason, alcohol dementia makes it impossible to learn new things.

There are some behaviors which point toward the possibility of alcohol dementia. The individual often has difficulty communicating or being involved in a normal conversation. They might lose simple skills, such as being unable to complete simple tasks or start a new project. There can be significant personality changes, including mood swings, fear of being alone, insensitivity, anger, or paranoia. Finally, another sign of alcohol dementia is disorientation.

Alcohol dementia is a terrible condition that can result from years of heavy alcoholism. No one wants to end up living this way in their old age. This is just one of the reasons why it’s important for people to seek addiction treatment when they have an alcoholism or alcohol abuse problem.
