Learn more about how our Drinking Culture can be partially to blame for alcoholism, and how we can succeed at improving how we think about alcohol and drinking.  Is a Safe Drinking Culture Possible? What role does our attitude toward alcohol have in the high rates of alcoholism today? These articles explore these questions.

Is a Safe Drinking Culture Possible?

There are steps that could potentially ensure a safe drinking culture for society at large, such as licenses to drink or mandatory drinking classes before a certain age. Either way, a few steps in the right direction could help create more drinking-conscious individuals, and thus help lessen the problem of alcohol addiction in our society. The more educated you are about a particular subject and the more options you have, the greater the likelihood you have of making the best choice. Without people who care about changing drinking culture, nothing will ever change.

Is Alcoholism a Choice or Fate?

Both genetic and environmental factors contribute to the abuse of alcohol. Nobody is doomed to become an alcoholic because of their genetics, environmental factors, or a combination of these two factors.  Each person is free to choose whether they will drink alcohol or not.  While it may offer an excuse for alcohol abuse among some people, neither genetics nor environment tell the whole story.  Each person must decide for themselves how they will use, not use, or stop drinking alcohol.  This is where our drinking culture often comes into play.
