In recent years there has been an increased scientific interest in the obsessive and compulsive use of ethyl aleohol -alcoholism. Concomitant with this increased interest in the alcoholic, there has been a decreasing tendency to regard alcoholism as moral turpitude, but rather to refer to it as a disease and to seek its genesis within the dynamics of the interrelated relationships of the emotional, mental, and physiological make-up of the individual. It is generally recognised that the personality is the framework upon which alcohol plays Its role to produce the alcoholic.
