How will your body be able to do this?

Alcohol affects your immune system in a bad way. Too much alcohol weakens it. And if you have cancer, you need your immune system to be as healthy as possible. Giving up your habit will mean a much healthier immune system.

If you stop drinking alcohol, the killer t-cells of your immune system are stronger and are better able to stop or to fight cancer. Quitting drinking builds up your immune system.

It was reported that alcohol increases the volume of tumor in patients with Type C cirrhosis.

Giving up alcohol also helps you financially.

Quitting drinking is practical.

If you drink a bottle of regular beer daily, how much would that cost you? In my country, it would be about $0.75 or an equivalent of a kilo of rice. If you quit drinking and save the money you buy beer with, you would have $22.50 by the end of the month.

To stop drinking is a big and difficult decision because alcohol is addicting. But it doesn't mean you can't quit.

Many health experts say having one drink daily for a woman is not considered as a risk factor for tumors in their breasts. But there have been new studies done with the finding that one drink daily increases the risk for the disease. If you have a family history of cancer, then it will be wise to consider this report.

An occasional drink is harmless. People love celebrations and when there is one, alcoholic beverages are a major part of it. Also, in some countries, drinking is considered a common daily activity.

It is when you drink heavily and your habit causes troubles to your family and your work that makes it harmful. When this happens, it's time for you to be giving up alcohol. I'm sure you won't miss it.
