Alcoholism is a form of disorder in which one is unable to control and manage their drinking habits. There are three categories in which alcoholism is categorized in. These being; mild, moderate, and severe. Often, many people confuse the cause of alcoholism believing that it is merely genetics that come into play. Though genetics is taken into consideration, it is not the main cause of alcoholism, as this disorder takes years to develop. Many times, people start to consume alcohol when they are experiencing high stress or depression, as these are the leading causes to the start of alcoholism. Since alcohol is an antidepressant, it has physiological effects on the brain, and creates an imbalance such a dopamine. With higher level of this chemical, many feel more confident after the initial intake of alcohol and their negative moods are suppressed. Thus these feelings then lead one to crave more alcohol, leading to an addiction.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
