The Psychology of Alcoholism: The Link Between Alcohol and Insanity

Alcoholism must be recognized as a cause of insanity... Of the total number of registered lunatics, about 25% are detained as certified lunatics whose condition has been brought on by drink.
In Chapter IX of The Psychology of Alcoholism, George Barton Cutten explores the connection between alcoholism and insanity. Cutten presents statistics and opinions from specialists that demonstrate the link between alcoholism and mental disorders, including imbecility, idiocy, and dementia. He also describes the physical and mental symptoms that accompany alcohol-induced mental disorders, such as tremors, arteriosclerosis, and marked changes in personality.
Cutten's work is especially noteworthy for its discussion of the impact of alcoholism on society, including the number of registered lunatics whose condition has been brought on by drink. Despite the fact that Cutten's work was published in 1932, it remains relevant today and provides valuable insights into the effects of chronic alcoholism on the mind and body.
