Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
When the body is under the influence of alcohol, the brain's work and performance cannot be maximized. Where the brain works when it is optimal is to be able to think and store memories from information that can be visual, audio or behavioral. So that when the alcoholic still exists, it will be very easy to forget what is being done at that time. Apart from being under the influence of alcohol, there are several factors that can cause a person to easily forget or not remember an event. Some of these are as follows:
The ability to remember each individual is different or even very individual. Information received is considered not important so it cannot be properly received by hearing or seeing. There is an interruption when receiving or taking certain actions on the information. Not really in a focus condition in receiving the information. There are effects from the use of certain drugs. Taking several types of drugs such as antidepressants, sleeping pills or painkillers can increase the risk of memory loss. The existence of certain stress or psychological pressure. Previous head injury. Of course it depends on your previous medical history. Lack of certain nutrients or vitamins such as Vitamin B12. Too often being under the influence of alcohol will not only harm your memory, it will also negatively affect your health in general. If you find it hard to get out of the habit of consuming alcohol, then you fall into a state of alcoholism or alcoholism. If a person is addicted to alcohol, it is difficult to stop consuming alcohol even though this condition has brought problems in daily life, always trying to stop consuming but difficult or even unable to stop consuming. If you are in this condition, you can have a special consultation with your doctor to get out of the addiction. Some of the things that can be done are as follows:
Detoxification Counseling Therapy with certain medications. Recovery at home. This step certainly requires consistency from yourself and support from those closest to you.
That's all I can say, hopefully it's useful.
