Although prostitution may be the oldest profession in the world, drinking alcohol at bars is perhaps one of the oldest past times. After all, alcoholic beverages have been consumed by mankind since before Biblical times, and even Jesus turned water into wine int the Bible! In fact, alcoholic beverages have been long been an important part of many important rites and rituals, such births, marriages, funerals, and other special occasions. But, as with anything else in life, there is a time and place for alcohol and too much of this good thing can be pretty bad.

Although many people enjoy an occasional alcoholic beverage within the cozy confines of their own home, nothing beats pounding back a few brews at local water holes, bars, poppin’ party hall venues, or even a craft beer pub. And there’s nothing wrong with an occasional turn up at bars, it can become a problem if that’s your go to weekend past time. If that’s the case, you’re not only putting your finances at risk, but more importantly, you’re also putting your overall health, well being, and emotional and mental wellness at risk as well.

A weekend of hopping bars may seem harmless, but again, doing it weekend after weekend for weeks, months, or even years at a time can have some pretty detrimental health effects, both physically and emotionally. Still in disbelief? Read on to find how exactly how devastating bars can be.

Your finances will take a beating

Have you ever noticed how expensive drinks at bar are? It’s no secret that bars over charge for their beverages, even something as inexpensive as carbonated sugar water, or soda. As such, it’s easy to see how binge drinking at bars weekend after weekend can take a serious toll on your bank account. It’s common for binge drinkers to find themselves struggling to pay rent, afford groceries, or put gas in their car. Your credit score may even begin to suffer as you fall behind on your payments. And without good credit, you won’t be able to do much of anything in terms of renting an apartment, getting approval for a car or home loan, and some employers may not even hire you due to your bad credit.

Your personal and professional relationships will take a beating

A lot of people enjoy going out in order to socialize, however, frequenting the local water holes too much can actually impact your personal and professional relationships more than you think. Your significant other may find it worrisome, and your boss won’t really appreciate you showing up to work hungover time and time again either. Whether it’s a personal or professional relationship, any relationship needs to be built on a solid foundation in order to be successful. And if the majority of your relationships are built on drunken bar foundations, don’t expect them to last or be meaningful. This can create a potentially dangerous emotional cycle of seeking external validation by partying, only to feel hollow at the superficiality of it all. This empty feeling only starts a new cycle of partying!

If you’re looking for a way to socialize and forge meaningful, healthy relationships, there are a number of local and sober social groups based on shared interests, such as the love of a sport or particular hobby. You’re far more likely to create better personal relationships and professional connections at these kinds of events instead of the tired bar scene.

Your health will definitely take a serious beating

Bragging about the number of brews you can sling back is nothing you should be proud of. Remember, alcohol is a poison, and what does poison do? It kills things, including your body. Drinking carries a number of significant short and long term health risks, even in moderate quantities. Not only does consuming alcohol effect your brain chemistry in negative ways, but also wreaks havoc on your internal organs, especially your digestive system. There’s a reason why drinking too much makes you want to throw up; your body is trying to save you by getting rid of the poison!
