The shift from periodic social drinking to substance abuse evolves to meet a person’s need for comfort and esteem.
THIS IS THE BEST ANSWER 👇
The transition from periodic social drinking (occasional drinking in equal amounts that falls into a low risk category and therefore as ‘responsible drinking’) develops into substance abuse (extreme obsession and addiction to alcohol damage not only to a person but also mentally) due to the person’s need to meet his ‘comfort’.
Such an evolution arises when a person is going through a hard step and desperately wants comfort in his life which makes him go as far as possible to fulfill that comfort even to the extent of ‘mis- substance use ‘while seeking that comfort as individuals so they experience constant mental and emotional stress that makes them so bad. So option A is the right answer.
