Alcohol creates a physical and psichological dependance, and a progressive degradation in all the aspects of life.

The first consequence is the typical confusional state typical of drunk people, that slowly becomes a constant in the addicted life, leading to dementia.

Then, the addicted becomes more and more closed in him/herself neglecting personal care, social relations and work, losing the normal inhibitions to keep the self-control.

This continuous stress logorates liver cells making them die and be replaced by fibrous cells. So, liver goes towards the cirrhosis that causes death.
