Alcoholism is a very important social problem in our Country. Nevertheless our knowledge about the frequency and the features of alcoholism in the household environment is poor; until recently this kind of alcoholism was considered a female problem. The authors studied two homogeneous groups of male and female alcoholics. Females have a greater tendency to drink in the household. This behaviour is due to socio-cultural condition rather than to different psychological features. The authors also reported the importance of the family in the etiology, evolution and treatment of alcoholism.
