Avoid the tingling

I consulted my doctor about numbness and tingling in the tips of my fingers after using a weedeater for long periods of time, and in the tips of my toes while showering.
The doctor said the tingling was a result of use of alcohol. She said the alcohol had affected my nerves — even though I haven’t had a drink of alcohol since 1987.
The doctor said heavy use of alcohol can affect the brain, liver and heart, but not the kidneys — although drinking can result in urination in alleys and storefronts after the bars close.
So, I would like to warn college students and teenagers who do a lot of binge drinking (like I did) that in about 30 years they might be suffering long-term effects of alcohol abuse.
