There have been a lot of studies, I mean thousands of studies about the impact of alcohol on the brain. And I’ve kind of boiled them down to a simple list, and. This is your brain on alcohol. It is slower, you’re clumsier, you’re dumber, you’re irresponsible, you’re unpredictable, you’re immature, and you’re impulsive. And, if you wanna know why that it’s true, let me, let me show you your brain. This is the healthy level of brain activity. And what we’re seeing here with the colors. All of the green, the yellows, and the orange. This is electrical activity in the brain. This is parts of the brain talking to each other. When you drink, this is what that brain looks like. When you drink as much as you do, even these little patches… Are gone. Are not here. Now that starts happening at .05. Whew. At .08, you’re legally intoxicated so they say you can’t drive. At .10, this is just over the legal limit. You have slurred speech, poor judgment, your coordination, balance, and motor skills are impaired. You’re uninhibited, you have slowed thinking, and emotionality. That’s at .1. At .2, you just add all of these things on to this. So you have all this plus, you’re disoriented and uncoordinated. You have double vision, you have blackouts, and you don’t inhibit your aggression. You’re vomiting and your gag reflex is impaired. So you’re likely to choke on your own vomit. So you have a risk of choking. At .25, it’s all of this plus, you have mental, physical, sensory, all severely impaired. Possible loss of consciousness, and now a high risk of choking on your vomit. We’re not to you yet. The last time you were in the ER, you were .35. Which is all of this, plus tremors, memory loss, and possible death. But now your breathing and heart rate start to decrease. You’ve got so much toxic alcohol in your brain, that it starts shutting down the respiratory system. The part of your brain that tells you to breathe. Your heart rate decreases, you lose bladder control. You’re lying in the floor, passed out in a pool of urine. You lose bladder control. Possible death, is 50 plus percent. That’s what you were last time you were in the ER. Time before that, you were just above .4. Now there’s, it’s not just decreasing, you have difficulty breathing, your heart is slowing down. This is the level that is accepted as lethal. At .4, you are supposed to die. So you can go three or four days, and your blood level… We can check your blood and it comes up .00. But your brain is still toxic ’cause you have alcohol poisoning. Well that’s certainly a wake up call. I’ve never had this explained to me in this manner. It’s just, it’s gotta stop. For my children. I’ve got to make a change. And I’m desperate for help.
