Alcohol and your body don't go, but just how many people out there carry on drinking alcohol when they know this? This should make you think before the next time you have a drink; within minutes of alcohol entering your body, it infiltrates your bloodstream, your brain, your liver, your pancreas, your kidneys, your lungs and every other living tissue in your body.

Did you know that heavy drinkers of alcohol are known as "Chronic Drinkers."
