"One of the behavioral signs in early and middle-stage alcoholism is a drive for extreme achievement.... Not only can most alcoholics function, but many of them, in some ways, perform better than the rest of us" This is a quote from the article "Shakespeare the drunk ?". Would it be possible if you can tell me where you found this study or is it an opinion ?

Sherry, the source was the article cited in the post: "Might Edward de Vere Have Suffered from Alcoholism?" by Robert R. Prechter, Jr., in the Shakespeare Oxford Newsletter.

Prechter's work in turn relies on the work of controversial alcoholism researcher Doug Thorburn.
