To avoid alcoholism, one should engage with good friends. Since, most members of the family seem victims of alcoholism, none victims should not try it.

The last common health problem in the family is allergies. From the research findings, dust, cold, and seafood are but the main cause of the condition. Therefore, avoiding allergies problems dictate for ensuring a dust free living and/or working environment (Marley, 70). On the side of cold as a cause of allergy, one should always ensure they are on warm clothing.
In addition to clothing, one should engage in house warming particularly during winter seasons. The type of food one eats should be guided on their body reactions. Given the food varieties available in the market choice always remains a right. All these means is to avoid seafood products as a lasting measure against sustaining such allergy.
