What are some negative health consequences associated with drinking alcohol?

="h2headingh2"style="color:rgb(0,0,0);"name="answer">Negative effects of habitual alcohol use on physical health can include: Liver problems that could eventually kill the person if the drinking continues, stomach problems, diabetes, aging 10 times faster than normal, high blood pressure, and gout.

The occasional drink is fine and even getting "tipsy" at the odd party, but if one drinks on a daily basis then time catches up. While young it doesn't seem like a big deal, but hitting the peak of 40 and up, a person who drinks too much is really out of shape (bloating and flabby) and isn't attractive at all. Some men and women have a red face or nose from too much drinking.
