Traits are one of the interesting aspects in This Grand Life's character creation. Your character is given a starting number of privilege points, which can be spent on positive and negative traits. The number of privilege points you start with is determined by where you were born.
The Silver Spoon is our flagship trait, where your wealthy parents give you money each month to spend however you like. Good for beginners, the extra cash makes paying bills much easier.
One of the more interesting negative traits is Alcoholic. This trait adds an extra needs bar (in addition to Hunger, Fun, Hygiene, Health and Happiness) that you need to satisfy. Logically, you can satisfy the need by drinking alcohol. It adds an additional challenge to balancing your budget when you need to keep feeding your addiction.
It doesn't need to be a lifelong addiction, but it won't be easy to cure either. You can apply for the Alcoholics Anonymous course at the Town Hall, and if you successfully complete it the Alcoholic trait will be removed.
