61: Todays Hip Hop
... see doctors or no shit like that. We coulda [sic] turned it into a gimmick, dressing all bummy, always in the same clothes, and carrying a forty -- but we didn't. We're aware that alcoholism is a serious problem. But alcohol isn't only in hip hop. You see it everywhere you go (Ro 1996, p. 74). This is seemingly a weak defense, but Swift has a point. At any ... Tap the Bottle," by Young Black Teenagers, and "Make Room/Last Call," by Tha Alkaholiks, do not help this situation at all. Passing a bottle between friends while hanging out at a park is not alcoholism to most teens; but rapper MC Main One says, "If you can't hang on the corner . . . and chill without a forty being part of the schedule, it's definitely the pre-stages of alcoholism" (Ro 1996, p. 74). If a kid must have a forty to have fun and to not be bored, there is obviously evidence of a drinking problem. This idea is a problem that can ...

... a whole to take care of the homeless people who have fallen prey to the lure of alcohol related problems. As of 1991, about 14 million Americans met medical diagnostic criteria for alcohol abuse or alcoholism. There are numerous health problems that are linked to drinking. For instance, if alcohol is consumed during pregnancy, birth defects may result, worse, the baby could be born addicted to alcohol (Kellam, 30). High doses ... are easily pressured into doing things they would not normally do. Also at high risk are twins and adopted children. Studies of these two groups demonstrate that genetic factors influence an individual’s vulnerability to alcoholism. Children of alcoholics are more likely than children of nonalcoholics to imitate drinking during adolescence and develop alcoholism, but the relative influence of environment and genetics have not been determined and vary among people (Chassin, 453). Advertising has also been found to play an influencing role in adolescents’ decision to drink. Research ...
64: Fyodor
... was as dark and dramatic as the great novels he wrote. Born in Moscow in 1821, he was the son of a former army surgeon who was killed by his own serfs because of his alcoholism and the brutality that followed his drinking fits. He was never close to his father possibly because of alcoholism, this is creates a hatred towards fatherly figures. The only father seen in the novel, Marmeladov, is a drunkard and is portrayed as a dead-beat dad, who only drank and did not tend to his family s need, but instead added to their misfortunes. Alcoholism is a massive problem that is mentioned in the book among numerous characters; consequently, Fyodor shuns it for this reason. He abhorred alcoholics, especially alcoholic fathers. Rodion imprisoned in the novel is the replica ...

66: Homosexuals: A Suspect Class?
... product of both genetics and learned behavior. As evidence of this, I submit my mother's side of the family, which contains many alcoholics. In my mind, the evidence overwhelmingly supports that a predisposition to alcoholism is hereditary. Yet, the Bible says "do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery." I cannot explain why there is an inherited trait for something condemned as a sin, nor will I attempt to. My point is that if there are genes that sway people toward homosexuality, they are to be fought just like the predisposition to alcoholism I have inherited must be. Things that "feel" more natural are not always inevitable, and simply because I have the genes to make me more likely to be an alcoholic does not mean I will ...
67: Cold Mountain Essay
... both Federals and Confederates looking for companionship and advice from other means. The result of this search end with other soldiers for the men.

As for the women, the lack of men changes their role in society. Just as WW ...

... that students who consider parties or athletics important and those who drink to get drunk appear most likely to binge drink or to drink heavily (Shalala, 1, 1995). Although alcohol use by adolescents is frequent, alcoholism is very rare. Still, alcohol consumption by adolescents hinders normal development. Alcohol intake by children can result in learning impairment, hyperactivity, and personality and behavior problems, because today's society has accepted the casual use ... these programs appear to have minimal effect on drinking and on the rates of alcohol problems. According to Donna E. Shalala, Secretary of Health and Human Services at The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, it seems that binge drinkers appear to engage in more unplanned sexual activity and to abandon safe sex techniques more often than students who do not binge drink (Shalala, 1995, 2). The purpose of this ...
69: Deppression And Teens
... Manning E-mail: s_manney@hotmal.com Teenage depression is a growing problem in today's society and is often a major contributing factor for a multitude of adolescent problems. The statistics about teenage runaways, alcoholism, drug problems, pregnancy, eating disorders, and suicide are alarming. Even more startling are the individual stories behind these statistics because the young people involved come from all communities, all economic levels, all home situations-anyone ... chance of returning home.

... had a slimmer ideal body image, and they dieted and exercised more. The risk factors for narrowly and broadly defined bulimia were similar (Kendler, 1991). Women with broadly defined bulimia had high rates of phobias, alcoholism, anxiety disorders, anorexia nervosa, and panic attacks. Their lifetime rate of major depression was also high (50 percent), but bulimia had no special association with that common disorder. All other things being equal, a woman with a history of major depression was 2.2 times more likely to have suffered from bulimia as well. The corresponding odds ratio for phobias was 2.4, for alcoholism 3.2, and for anorexia nervosa 8.2. In most studies of patients treated for both bulimia and depression, bulimia is found to precede depression, but in this group of largely untreated people the depression ...
