The current author raises some concerns regarding the finding of J Paul et al, criticizing their claim that subjects whose parents abused alcohol or drugs are more likely attempt suicide, which he argues is erroneous based on the findings presented. Also, he argues that 2 of the 4 questions stated in the introduction to the article were not adequately addressed. J Paul responds to these criticisms by suggesting a misreading of the article by Pierce. (1 ref)
