Alcohol Dependence?!

Now that the holiday season has official come to a close, I wonder how many people had to stave off their dipsomanic temptations?   Just because you have the craving does not mean that you necessarily indulge the craving, but alas, there are many who do.  Did you know that approximately 7.2 percent or 17 million adults in the United States ages 18 and older had an alcohol use disorder in 2012?  Not sure if you meet the criteria, check out this webpage for more information.
