Causes and Cure of Alcoholism/Addiction

Posted on February 17, 2014 at 3:40 PM

The usual answer you get in AA/NA  is that "Nobody knows what causes it" or perhaps you might get someone who will say "Genetics" and cite twin studies. Some hold on to the misguided and discredited notion that Alcoholics process alcohol differently. Some will say it is an allergy.  

Researchers are now beginning to understand more, although this may threaten some sacred cows of many regarding Alcoholism and Addiction:
