Drinking too much alcohol can have a direct impact on your health. This may be happening even if you currently feel quite well. You may have some symptoms caused by drinking but perhaps haven't stopped to think about it.
Over time, drinking too much alcohol can increase your risk of other health problems such as cancers, liver cirrhosis, high blood pressure and dementia.
Drinking too much whilst pregnant can also affect your baby's health.
Alcohol also has other undesirable effects like sexual problems and weight gain.

Alcohol and being a parent
The fractured society
the politics within DF will be complex and dynamic, they will also be subtle, without mass information what exactly people will be doing will only be known by seeing them do it. Or by hearsay of allies. I think it should be something that could be ignored. that if the player had no interest in the struggle between the criminal gangs then they would not be dragged in, unless they were doing somthing which was a part of that, in which case they would likely be interested in the struggle as they have a personal stake in it.
The structure could be concieved as 3 levels
- The board
- The force
- The individual
The board, secretive characters who are unlikely to be within the city, they direct the forces within the city to achieve their own objectives.
The force, within the city there will be significant, often armed, force, trying to achieve the goals of the board. These forces are likely the first thing that the player will see in terms of the political player.
The individual, the force is made of individuals, who have their own desires, politics and objectives. This creates a lot of dynamics within the force, if the captain of a squad of soldiers dies, who takes up the command? indescretions of a gun runner who doesn't want to hurt people despite his boss' demands. Could be exploited and turned against their former force.
I suppose, everyone will have a loyalty, whether that's to their service, themselves, or other people.
The military are possibly one of the most fluid factions, and they are the ones to watch if you're trying to gauge what the government are planning.
The military has a commanding officer within the city and an established hierarchy of command, it has 3 strongholds, has a force of 500 infantry and vehicles to mobilise most of them. They are highly tactical, smart and well armed, including support from outside the city. They have rations within their strongholds and are able to avoid the problems most others will face through the course of the month. The military board is connected to the government, their main priority is the safety of the country. The military will adapt their protocols throughout the game.
It is important to know how drugs can affect you and what the risks are if you take them.
You can never tell how strong they are or what is in them.
An accidental overdose could lead to unconsciousness or even death.
Mixing different drugs, or mixing drugs with alcohol, can be very dangerous.
Drugs awareness and support
Stopping smoking is one of the most important things you can do to improve your health and research shows that you are 4 times more likely to succeed with support and stop smoking medication.
