It was too much alcohol and not enough practice.
Too much alcohol? Only a 50 year old spinster would say something like that.

ADHD, Booze & You

Attention disorder linked with drug abuse
Monday, August 18, 2003 Posted: 2:27 PM EDT (1827 GMT)

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- Children with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder are more likely to smoke, drink and use illegal drugs, researchers found.

It could be because children with the disorder -- called ADHD -- have trouble paying attention, have problems at school and difficulty with relationships with friends and family. This, in turn, could make them susceptible to abusing drugs and alcohol, the researchers said.

It also shows it is important to diagnose and treat ADHD early, the researchers write in the August issue of the Journal of Abnormal Psychology.

Psychologists Brooke Molina of the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and William Pelham of the State University of New York at Buffalo compared 142 teen-agers aged 13 to 18 who had been diagnosed with ADHD to 100 children without ADHD.

They looked for antisocial behavior reported by the teachers and parents and questioned the children.

Children with ADHD had a higher risk of abusing alcohol and heavier drugs, and were more likely to smoke, at younger ages, than non-ADHD children, they found.

"Childhood ADHD symptoms, particularly the inattention dimension of ADHD, predicted later substance use to a greater degree than childhood antisocial behaviors," Molina said in a statement.

About 72 percent of the children still had ADHD as teens and they reported getting drunk more often and more cigarette smoking than adolescents without childhood ADHD.

"A child may begin having poor academic performance and peer difficulties and then gravitate toward nonconformist peer groups as an adolescent where substance abuse is accepted as a way of life," said Molina.

Fuck 'em if they can't take a joke.

It will hurt less if you don't struggle.

Yes, apparently it is. I've always been a big fan of self-medication. Who needs Ritalin? Jim Beam tastes so much better...
