The dangers of alcoholism

APPOMATTOX, VA (WWBT) - In this week's Neighborhood Health Watch we explore the long term effects of putting something in your body and that is alcohol or alcoholism.

Often a problem that is ignored by the patient.

Four questions to ask: Have you ever felt the need to cut down on your drinking? Have people annoyed you by criticizing your drinking? Have you felt guilty about your drinking habit? Do you ever have a drink in the morning to steady your nerves or get rid of a hangover?

If you answered yes to any of the questions listed you should talk with your doctor.
