Behavior - Drinking Can Affect Your Judgment and Behavior. You may begin to behave irrationally or aggressively when you are drunk. Drinking can cause short term loss of memory while heavy drinking may impair memories in the long term too.

Immune system - the immune system can be compromised due to frequent consumption of alcohol. Infectious diseases usually attack heavy drinkers much more easily.
