Parties are fun. Who would deny that? But if you haven't noticed yet, alcohol is an integral part of most of them. It's almost like a social norm where the 'non-drinkers' are seen with questionable eyes. Well, we believe that anything in moderation is good but matters worsen when drinking turns into a daily ritual. 

Alcohol causes all kinds of health problems. High blood pressure, weight gain, emotional problems. These are just some of the many dangerous side-effects it has on the consumer. When one goes sober after being a heavy drinker, your body rehabilitates in ways more than one and the results are tremendous. Boredpanda recently compiled a list of pictures of people, before and after they quit drinking, and they are motivational AF.
