Alcoholism Statistics - LoveToKnow Recovery
Alcoholism is a condition that affects many people in the USA...approximately 43 percent of the population has a family member who is an alcoholic. That works out to approximately 76 million people who grew up in a home where someone had a problem with alcohol or married someone with one.
Wow, not too bad, huh? I guess it's still less than half...
It's pretty odd that someone with as big a penchant for reciting memorized statistics/missing the bigger point as you would somehow not know these stats.
The funny part, of course, is that nobody has made any attempt to explain how suicide rates somehow, apparently, directly correlate with the common citizen's satisfaction with the cost of his flipping health insurance. Talk about middling details!
