    Actually, the female offspring of alcoholics are seldom drunks and more likly to take refuge in hypochondriacal fears and complaints.

    Sorry, Flawed, there is no connection between alcoholism and depression... heavy drinking, yes, assuredly. An alcoholic is an altogether a different beast than a heavy drinker: anyone who has ever visited an alcoholic-ward is familiar with the classic "alcoholic-personality" which seldom varies, add to this racial/ethnic differences in the metabolization of alcohol, and environmental contingencies, and there you have it.

    And it is no surprise that so many recovering alcoholics are on anti-depressants, one might blame the unholy relations between jaded clinicians and an aggressive pharmaceutical industry for this sad situation.

    Well, speaking from experience, having witnessed the circumstance.

    My female friend did slide down the slippery slope, then again, a major part could have been played by her husband who too liked a drink or two too many.

    Nonetheless, both her parents drank heavily, Dad especially. I remember going to the Irish Centre with them on many occassions and her Dad would drive home completely blotto.

    Her brother never fell into the sad decline and always appeared more "sensible"shall we say. I don't know where your theory or conclusion gained ground but as far as I'm concerned, there are as many female alcoholics as male.
    Maybe moreso.

    By the way, I'm not speaking of myself, it's not one of those "this friend I know" excuses for a reply. That is factual. She did in fact have five children and died far too young. I don't know what became of their Dad but I really dread to think.

    Yes they certainly do Andy. I think many women do, unknowingly. He wasn't violent in any way just drank more than he should.

    Most everyone else was I suppose.
    I'm going back a few years now when drink driving was considered pretty normal behaviour to those who had a drink before they drove.

    Still is in some quarters. George Best was done last week for being 2 and a half times over the limit.

    Goes with the territory.

    Yes Andy, years ago there was no such thing as the breathalyser so they did have "one for the road". Now, they do have ways of testing for drugs too, which are obviously as much, if not more an impediment on the judgement.

    Anyway, I'll have to get some sleep now. Nice to see you back.
    Take care.

    Some of us would never drive at all.

    Default Re: Yes many women marry men like their Father it is true!!!!!!

    So it is no supprise to find out that her husband was also a drinker just like her father was.
    And the people who she hung out with say her husband for intance had some influence over her!! Women get influenced by their husbands!! some men like to have control!!

    Default Re: Yes it depends which drugs for driving!

    If you are diabetic and you take insuline or something you have to take it to live!
    But there are many drugs which make you 'drowsy' or 'out of it' or they speed you up and make you feel over confident!! and then you shouldn't drive.

    I've been on amphetamines and other stimulants for twelve years for mild narcolepsy. While I would never fall asleep at the wheel, a severe phobia about driving compels me to often exceed my usual dose... if you know what I mean.
