Alcoholism is a chronic and often progressive disease that includes problems controlling your drinking, being preoccupied with alcohol, continuing to use alcohol even when it causes problems, having to drink more to get the same effect, or having withdrawal symptoms when you rapidly decrease or stop drinking.

First of all, nice job using google. (if you search up the topic the same exact thing he said is there) You do know the word plagiarism. Maybe you are too dumb to read. Anywho, the way alcoholism works, is that it is an addiction. The alcohol inside of the refreshment affects your brain. Investigators say they have identified specific differences in how the so-called reward center of the brain responds to alcohol in heavy and light drinkers. In both groups, drinking alcohol caused the release of naturally occurring feel-good opoids known as endorphins in two key brain regions associated with reward processing. But heavy drinkers released more endorphins in response to alcohol, and they reported feeling more intoxicated than the lighter drinkers after drinking the same amount of alcohol.The findings suggest that people whose brains release more natural opioids in response to alcohol may get more pleasure out of drinking and may be more likely to drink too much and become alcoholics. So basically alchohaulism isn't a disease it is an addiction.

@mdc32:

Ya it's a shame. I guess Con wins R1 by default though.

Hmm. This is interesting. Con is right in saying that Pro plagiarized his first round, yet to point this out, he reverts to ad hominem attacks. Conduct is still split even after Pro's plagiarism. I will likely vote when this is done.

Reasons for voting decision: Full forfeits and obvious plagiarism. Con, considering your personal attack against him, I almost gave him conduct. Take care not to do that.
