Theories suggest that for certain people drinking has a different and stronger impact that can lead to an alcohol use disorder. Someone with a parent or sibling with alcoholism is three to four times more likely to become an alcoholic themselves, but only a minority of them do. Environmental factors include social, cultural, and behavioral influences. High-stress levels and anxiety, as well as alcohol’s inexpensive cost and easy accessibility, increase the risk. People may continue to drink partly to prevent or improve symptoms of withdrawal. Medically, alcoholism is considered both a physical and mental illness.
