Alcoholism effects as much as 10% of all adult males and perhaps half as many females worldwide. Alcoholism can start in childhood or adolescence. For adults, drinking may begin during periods of stress and depression that resurface after periods of abstinence and/or controlled drinking (Kinney & Leaton, 1987). The definition of alcoholism may be disputed, but the signs and symptoms are clear. The inability to stop drinking once having started, medical complications, withdrawal symptoms, legal troubles due to alcohol consumption, and continued use despite adverse consequences are just some universal behaviors which may describe an alcoholic (Kinney & Leaton, 1987).
