Alcoholism. French engraving from the 1770s of two alcoholics. The inebriated man at right, whose wig is falling off, is being offered another drink. Underlying this caricature of alcoholism is the seriousness of this disease. Alcohol is an addictive substance which can cause irreversible damage to the heart, liver, brain and nervous system.
