Alcohol

It’s not uncommon to hear someone say they don’t remember the night before, after a night of heavy drinking. It’s so common that we laugh it off and move on with our lives, thinking we’ve only suffered  a few hours of cognitive impairment. But, does heavy drinking and blacking out eventually lead to long-term memory loss?

Barely being able to speak or walk are obvious signs that alcohol affects the brain. According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), a person who drinks heavily over a long period of time may have brain deficits that persist well after they achieve sobriety.

“Large quantities of alcohol, especially when consumed quickly and on an empty stomach, can produce a blackout, or an interval of time for which the intoxicated person cannot recall key details of events, or even entire events,” according to NIAAA.
