The earlier the introduction the more ingrained it is in your life habits, the more it becomes a problem at a later age. Now, genetics come into play individually for alcoholism, etc, but across societies, that has been the data. Just an example about how the more mature the brain is with high risk behaviors like EtOH consumption the better the behavior.
