''Compromise'' - have a bad effect

Hello everyone,

I'd like to know if "compromise" is natural/common in the contexts below. Please take a look.

a. ''Alcohol compromises they way you drive.'' Meaning intended: you don't drive as well as you can when you drink.
b. "Depression compromised his performance at work.'' Meaning intended: he wasn't working as well as he was able to because of depression.

Thank you in advance!

    Not sounding natural here.

    P.S - Sorry, after reading previous posts and other reply I believe I was wrong.
