Children of Alcoholics: Important Facts
Living with a non-recovering alcoholic in the family can contribute to stress for all members of the family. Each member may be affected differently. Not all alcoholic families experience or react to this stress in the same way. The level of dysfunction or resiliency of the non-alcoholic spouse is a key factor in the effects of problems impacting children.
Alcohol and Tobacco
Extensive research supports the popular observation that "smokers drink and drinkers smoke." Moreover, the heaviest alcohol consumers are also the heaviest consumers of tobacco.
Use and Misuse of Alcohol Among Older Women
Many of the acute and chronic medical and psychiatric conditions that lead to high rates of health care use by older people are influenced by the consumption of alcohol.
