Scientists from the University of Missouri conducted an analysis of data collected by researchers from the University of Arizona. In the focal group were men with alcohol dependence aged 18-40 years. Evaluated the impact of marriage and family life to addiction.
In many cases, the formation of a family forced people to abandon their addiction or to reduce the amount of alcohol consumed, writes The Daily Mail. While the exact explanation for the described phenomenon is not, and scientists make guesses about it.
