This behavior trait can be passed down from parents to children. It is said that approximately fifty percent of the cause is attributed to someone’s genetics.
A child growing up to see his or her parent dependent on alcohol., can cause the child to want to do the same. EnvironmentSome environmental factors include, drug accessibility, peer pressure, witnessing violence, and physical or sexual abuse. Before birth you are be exposed to alcohol and other poisonous toxins and this has been studied to be linked to mental illness. While there are other factors that may cause alcoholism, mental illness seems to have the most support and research to withhold its findings. That mental stressor is attached to your brain, and it never goes away.Psychology.Everyone has a limit on what they can handle as far as psychologically.
This is the third cause. There is never two people in life that handle personal experiences the same. Early in childhood, people can experience tragic events as that of an alcoholic parent or a dysfunctional family.
One person may handle it with strength as another may take to anxiety or stress. The stressors are a defense mechanism in adults in trying to improve their mood; and this is why they will consume alcohol. To get that feeling of normality or to feel good. Effects.
As a result of alcoholism, the harm done is not only limited to oneself but also others that call themselves your friends or family. There are short term and long-term effects of alcohol usage. The short-term causes consist of vomiting, impaired judgement and slurred speech. The long-term usage will cause alcohol poisoning, it can lead to cancer, and liver disease. The effects will vary person to person and the causes as well.
One may not see the harm done soon after drinking and another may see the harm unfolding right in front of them. Conclusion.While alcoholism continues to be an epidemic, more research is becoming available.
The causes which include the genetics and the environment seem to be valuable. The psychological findings are essential and can lead to a break-through in research. (Baker, 2018)”Alcoholism is a disease that creates temporary madness and insanity.”-Dr. T.
