Linking Brilliance with Alcoholism

Unfortunately, I do not have access to the full text of the article (ironic, considering my employer), but below is a link to the abstract. This explains so much, gulp.

Summary from Yahoo!:
"Contrary to expectations, higher intelligence scores at age 10 may be associated with higher levels of alcohol intake and alcohol-related drinking problems during adulthood, study findings suggest.

Moreover, these associations appear "markedly stronger among women than among men," Dr. G. David Batty, from the University of Glasgow in Scotland, and colleagues report in the American Journal of Public Health."
