The idea that there is some physiology factor that causes people to be addicted to and abuse alcohol. Don’t make decisions well about it, and aren’t able to do without it. This may be situation specific. Why can some people drink all the time with no problems, others cant. Different countries, communities, towns vs cities, etc. 2. What is the relationship between drinking and social class? Drinking and gender? Drinking and marital status? Drinking and race? How are social class, gender, marital status, and race related to heavy drinking? 3. How can Edwin Sutherland's theory of differential association be used to explain drinking?

What is the evidence for the deterrent effects of drinking-and-driving laws? 5. What are the demographic patterns of masturbation in the U.S.? 6.
