Which age group has the highest number...?

Of drug/alcohol abusers, mentally unstable, low income, etc?

People in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, or 60s? I'm just wondering, does it seem true that there is a higher number of people between the ages of 40 and 50 something with more social problems than all the other generations put together, and if this is so, what might have caused it? And are there more 40-50 somethings on Social Security right now?

    What a depressing question.

    It does seem every generation has it's share of addicts.

    The young are sniffing petrol, taking ecstasy.

    20-30 year olds are into alcohol, dope and worse.

    30-40 Oh what's the point.....

    Most people with dependent personalities will carry some form of addiction right through their life.

    Told you ---- depressing........

    Be careful, because remember that there are more baby boomers right now than other generations. So you should really look for the highest percentage of addicts, etc. instead of the highest number.
