Substance Abuse

If you grew up in an alcoholic family, put on the yellow light (proceed with caution) when it comes to alcohol and other drugs.
"Children of alcoholics have a three- to fourfold greater chance of developing alcoholism, says Michael Weaver, M.D., an addiction medical specialist in Richmond.  Although there's less research on drug abuse, a similar risk is thought to apply.  If you have such a background, it's essential to monitor your consumption or stop altogether.  Sometimes it's easier to say 'None at all,' when there is a known genetic risk than to wonder, 'How much is too much?', says Weaver.
