Alcohol is a poison, and drinking too much will destroy your body. A woman named Beverly Pickorer had been an alcoholic for 15 years. Her family notes she drank as many as 40 beers a day.

However, the alcohol gradually ravaged Beverly’s body, and by the time she was 35, she was close to death due to severe cirrhosis of the liver. By that time, Beverly had lost nearly all her teeth, couldn’t speak, and spent her final months in hospice care.

Anthony Howard, her boyfriend, stayed with her despite her heavy drinking. He decided to publish these pictures of Beverly’s last days so everyone can see for themselves what happens to alcoholics.

According to the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), cirrhosis of the liver, pancreatitis and other serious conditions can come about consuming large amounts of alcohol on a long-term basis. Just one night of heavy drinking damages your immune system for at least 24 hours.

Severe daily drinking also been listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) as a psychological disorder. Society has long put a stigma on addiction, but medical professionals argue that we need to view these problems as medical conditions.

Alcoholism is a clinical disorder impacts over 17 million Americans, and is diagnosed on a scale of mild, moderate, and severe.
