Can alcoholism run in families?
I've been told my mom it runs on both sides. But alcoholism is more common than alot of drugs.
Plus, why is alcohol ok compared to any other drugs?

Weak people are very likely to produce more weak people. No surprise at all.

It appears that alcoholism runs in family because of genetics and family influences. Also, if you lack coping skills. The key is abstinence.
Alcohol is never "okay" especially if it runs in the family.

alcohol consumption can be a LEARNED behavior
, and can become a COPING Mechanism for stress
and may become a HABITUAL cycle

Yes, there can be a genetic link. Why is alcohol ok compared to any other drugs? Because it's more socially acceptable and legal at a certain age. That being said, alcohol is a drug because it's a mind altering substance, but that doesn't mean that becoming alcohol dependent is any different than becoming dependent on any other drug. Addiction is addiction no matter how you look at it, and even if a person is in "recovery" they are still an addict and always will be considered that. It's just that they are not actively "using." They are a recovering addict.

if you're used to seeing alcoholics around then you'll be more likely to binge drink

They say some people are more predisposed to developing a drinking problem than others. Because of family history. You can research it on Google

Yes, a propensity for alcoholism is genetic.
