Oh shit, here he goes again!
This is just part of an article that talks about chemical and genetic causes for alcoholism. I read somewhere else about 5-HT therapy for alcoholics. Just found the mention of 5-HT interesting. It also talks about GABA.
"L-tryptophan, involved in the manufacture of serotonin in the brain, helps to improve sleep and reduce craving for alcohol and sweets. It has now been discovered that chromium -- a natural trace element -- promotes the passage of natural tryptophan from diet through the blood/brain barrier into the brain, thereby achieving the desired beneficial result."
