There’s just no comparison to alcohol, too much alcohol, too often, is bad on anyone’s health, plus it’s a common cause of erectile dysfunction. Alcoholism and erectile dysfunction.
There is something called Brewer’s Droop, a slang term really, which refers to a short term loss of getting an erection after drinking way too much booze.
The longer you drink, I don’t mean like at one setting, but like over time, like months and years; alcohol gets downright dirty and lowdown. Alcohol has a super negative effect on your erections due to the fact that it affects the nervous system. The nervous system is responsible for allowing your body to have an erection and if these signals between the brain and the penis are interrupted then it makes it harder and often impossible for the body to have an erection.
It’s been proven by medical experts that alcohol can cause long term impotence and irreversible damage, this condition is known as ‘alcohol impotence’.
Alcoholism has extreme toxic effects within your body and it especially affects the liver, brain and the nervous system. It is this affect on the nervous system which gives you the most serious problems that are associated with erectile dysfunction. Alcoholism can have an adverse effect on your libido and it can affect hormone levels resulting in a fall in the level of testosterone being produced. Like I said earlier, long term alcohol use can get dirty and lowdown.
Being an alcoholic can have a dramatic effect on your personal and social life with a lot of people suffering from this condition also having to deal with extreme stress, anxiety and depression. If you are in a relationship this could also suffer due to the alcoholism and this would then make it more likely for you to have erectile problems.
