The attribution/credit for this is below. It is just a very cool graphic and I thought some of you might like it. I am looking for more graphics and up-to-date stuff for this section. I am trying to add something cool on the blog. Instead of just boring facts.
Some cautions I would like to point out.
I could not find when these statistics were compiled. I would like to know if these were done in 2013 or 2000 or whenever. I didn’t see where they cited their sources so I couldn’t follow up.
Without knowing who conducted the studies we cannot tell how credible they are. Seriously, some AA guys will tell you that an alcoholic is someone who has had 1 drink in the past 10 years. To me that is crazy talk. If I could have held my drinking to 1 drink per hour on the evenings and weekends I would have never of quit. Alcoholic or not I would never have stopped.
This isn’t to throw this graphic credibility into the trash. It is just that my other posts usually have a link to someone like the Mayo Clinic or another credible source so you can confirm the facts and finding. I’m sure this chart is accurate, but beware.
