Alcoholism may be fueled by a number of emotional or mental problems, but some people tend to have more addictive personalities. Evidence for this has been seen in patients of gastric bypass surgery.
As this video explains, the difficulties following surgery may lead patients to consume alcohol instead of relying on food as a crutch for stress relief. The problem is compounded by the increased physically addictive qualities of alcohol on individuals who have had their anatomy so dramatically altered.
