Kids With Family History Of Substance Abuse Have Brains That Must Work Harder To Fight Impulses

I've long known that impulse control figured in heavily for us alcoholics and we know that addiction is hereditary (there are other ways to "get" it too), but never thought that children of alcoholics would have a harder time with impulse control. Makes sense though. REad about it from the Medical Daily.





Kids With Family History Of Substance Abuse Have Brains That Must Work Harder To Fight Impulses: " One in five kids grows up with an alcohol relative, according to the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry . These kids are four times more likely to become alcoholics. However, a new study  suggests it’s not entirely because of the environment they’re in, but instead because their brains are predisposed to improper development."
