I checked on the Mayo Clinic's website, and "Steady drinking over time." (http://urlredo.com/Wg on 12/22/12) is a risk factor for alcoholism. In my personal experience, I think the most important risk factor is family alcoholism.
That article albertsj refers to is at https://hubpages.com/health/Pet-Peeves-Some-Univer...
I agree! So does the Mayo Clinic. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/alcoholism/DS0034... on 12/22/12
I agree. I checked the Mayo Clinic's website, "Steady drinking over time." (http://urlredo.com/Wg on 12/22/12) is a risk factor for alcoholism, not necessarily a drinking problem or a definite case of alcoholism.
I followed my own advice:
I'm saddened to hear about the burden you've been forced to carry. If the people your are around are blood relatives, be very careful to never drink a drop yourself. No amount is safe for you, from what I've studied. Be safe--don't drink just in case
You seem a little over protective about those who are around alcoholics. It's all about monitoring how much you have.
"Risk factors for alcoholism include: Steady drinking over time. Drinking too much on a regular basis for an extended period or binge drinking on a regular basis...a parent or other close relatives who have problems with alcohol." http://www.mayoclin
Note where you got the source. The Mayo Clinic doesn't believe in discipline or responsibility. By not believing in those two traits, people become idiots and morons who blame others left and right.
