How Exactly Does
Alcoholism Develop?

There are a variety of factors that can contribute to alcohol addiction. Family history can play an important role. Due to genetics, if you have a parent or relative who is an alcoholic, you’re at a higher risk of alcoholism.

Other factors that can contribute to excessive drinking and alcoholism include:

  • Drinking at a young age: Individuals who began drinking in their youth are more likely to develop an addiction to alcohol as they age
  • Early childhood trauma: People with a history of childhood trauma, such as abuse or neglect, are vulnerable to using alcohol as a coping mechanism when they get older
  • Mental health problems: Mental disorders like bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, anxiety, and depression increase the risk of alcoholism, and the two problems can exacerbate one another.

Individuals are at higher risk of developing alcoholism if they live in a culture or family where alcohol use and binge drinking are common and widely accepted. People who struggle with stress and low self-esteem are also more likely to drink in order to cope.
