Hospital authorities in England say a 3-year-old there was recently treated for alcoholism.

The unnamed child, thought to be Britain’s youngest alcoholic, was among 13 youngsters aged 12 and under who were diagnosed as alcoholics by the Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust between 2008 and 2010.

Doctors treated the unnamed child for withdrawal systems after the toddler suffered the shakes and wild mood swings.

Experts suspect the youngster would have to have been given booze repeatedly over at least a six-month period to develop such a dependency.
