Tag: Causes of Alcoholism

Alcohol is often used because of its mental effects, but the causes of alcoholism can be quite varied.  Some people drink as a social activity, others because they like the taste of alcohol, while others drink because of pressure or another unpleasant reason. Often, it’s peer pressure in social and professional situations. If everyone is drinking and a lone individual closes not to, they may be excluded not only from the social scene but from professional opportunities as well.

Both genetic and environmental factors contribute to the abuse of alcohol and propensity for alcoholism. While it may offer an excuse for alcohol abuse among some people, neither genetics nor environment tell the whole story. Alcohol abuse often stems from underlying mental health issues, like depression or anxiety. And when someone starts to feel as though they can’t function through the day without alcohol, they have entered into the territory of alcoholism.
