Alcoholism is a deadly problem, and sadly too many people don't seek help until serious damage is already done. Some people can have a drink or two and be fine, but others can become addicted to the stuff. Part of the problem is it's hard to visualize the long-term consequences early on. That's why California-based website Rehabs lets you see what you'll look like after 20 years of alcohol abuse.

The website uses your uploaded photo to predict how your appearance will change with heavy drinking. You'll see altered images of yourself after 2, 5, 10, 15 and 20 years.

Your appearance isn't exactly the most important thing to worry about when dealing with alcoholism - there's other serious issues like depression, liver disease and even death.

But, the way your appearance changes can be an indicator for more serious problems. The changes in your skin, hair and face can indicate problems like severe dehydration, enlarged blood vessels and Vitamin A, B and C deficiency.
