“Personality traits are part inherited and part learned. Scientists have not been able to identifu a
specific personality type that is more prone to alcohol dependency, although certain traits may be
associatedwith high alcohol use. Low self-esteem is sometimes correlated with alcohol dependency,
as is risk-taking or poor impulse control. Individuals who experience depression, anxiety, or phobias
are also often at higher risk for developing alcohol dependence. Debate continues, however, over
which comes first! Is a depressed or anxious person more likely to use alcohol to relieve their
symptoms? Or, is a person who abuses alcohol more likely to become depressed and anxious? These
are questions that researchers haven’t definitively answered.”

The 8th edition of MLA has resulted in changes to the citation format. Correcting the citations on our website will take some time. Until then, please reference the guidelines below to correct the citation format. You will still be using the information provided here, but you may need to adjust the format for MLA 8.

Most MLA citations on our site should follow this format:

Author, A. Title of Source. Publisher, Date, URL. Accessed, 1 Jan 2050.
"Web." removed
  • Medium of publication does not need to be stated if obvious.
  • Listing the "name of the site" is not necessary if it is the same as the name of the publisher.
No brackets around URLs
  • URLs should be placed after the publication date, separated by a comma, and before the date accessed, with a period at the end.

For citing an article in a scholarly journal you will use the journal title instead of publisher, and retain any volume, issue, and page numbers. Use a DOI in place of URL if one is available.
