Do people take less alcohol if they start it at their young?

Alcohol’s impact on body starts from the moment you take your first sip. Liver disease is life threatening and leads to toxins and waste buildup in your body. During the processing of alcohol, you also get a product called NADH. NADH is another coenzyme, and it generates fatty acid and also blocks the process of fat burning. So when you have alcohol in your liver, your body stops burning fat and worst part is that since NADH makes fatty acids, you may get stroke and fatty liver from too much alcohol consumption.

Once addicted, it’s very difficult to leave the poison but psychologists suggest some important things to do so that one can leave alcohol with no trouble.

Many parents think that it’s wise to bring in their children to alcohol early in order to prevent them from drinking a lot when they are older. Experts warn that the exact opposite tends to take place.

It’s not unusual for people to think that by giving alcohol to a juvenile child, the novelty will wear off more easily. They may also think that by being present when their child takes alcohol, they can teach the child to drink responsibly.

This theory grounds some parents to let their child drink alcohol before the age of 15. They often believe it works because they have been raised in a similar fashion. However, experts warn that consuming alcohol before the age of 15 has physical and mental repercussions as the growth of a child are stalled. Drinking before the age of 18 is also considered as hazardous.

Leaving aside the direct effects on a child’s physical condition, what about their drinking activities later on? A study observed the drinking practice of nearly 2,000 children and their parents to find out what happens when children are introduced to alcohol by their parents at an early age.

The results show that children with contact to alcohol early on are more likely to binge drink when they are older, which is both unhealthy and dangerous behavior for children.
