Recognize the alcoholism warning signs in your teen.

According to scientists, the age at which you begin drinking may influence your drinking habits in adulthood.

Drinking alone between the ages of 18 and mid-20s increases the risk of developing alcoholism in their 30s.

The study, which was published in the journal Drug and Alcohol Dependence, also discovered that the risk was especially high for women.

Solitary drinking is a distinct and powerful risk factor for developing an alcohol use disorder in the future.

Drinking alone at a young age can have a long-term impact on people's alcohol habits.

They asked them about their drinking habits again when they were 22 to 23 years old, and again when they were 35 years old.
