Example text

Extensive drinkers also (a) get divorced more often, (b) lose jobs because they drink, (c) are more apt to be depressed, etc. Each of these types of correlates of M&A are, however, probably products of drinking extensively. There seems to be an intense interest in finding what is wrong with alcoholics. The conclusion that there are only a few reliable predictors of who will become an alcoholic (in a society in which nearly everyone "experiments" with drinking) leads to the further conclusion that, maybe, the often asked question has been posed too narrowly.

Those more vulnerable are those with a family history of M&A, and those who are already drinking so much that their current behavior is already problematic. Also, those who are already extensive users of illegal drugs are vulnerable (Newcomb, 1988), but it is not known whether or not the drug-use merely exacerbates a problem (M&A), or is another manifestation of a general problem that usually manifests itself as extensive drinking. Another generalization that emerges is that, prior to the toxic effects of alcohol becoming manifest, those who eventually evidence M&A are not radically different from those that do not.

They instituted the procedure of nearly constant infusions of THP to produce rats that took considerable amounts E each day. After rats were taking considerable E (about 5 g/kg a day), they were injected with naloxone, the opioid-antagonist. Naloxone reduced the amount of E taken. The research following the 1970-papers that gave rise to the MM-hypotheses of M&A, in their various forms, does not allow for many strong conclusions. There is no reason to presume that opioids are involved in E's dependence as indexed by withdrawal symptoms (Goldstein & Judson, 1971).
