    Abstract

    NIAAA-supported research reveals that about one-third of Americans do not drink at all and the majority of those who do drink, do so without adverse consequences. But pressing questions still persist. Why do some people exhibit a pathological appetite for alcohol despite serious physical and social problems? Why are some individuals more vulnerable to the effects of alcohol?
