Q. how is dementia and alcoholism related

A. Alcohol can cause dementia through nutritional deficiencies (e.g. B1, or thiamine deficiency, causing Wernicke encephalopathy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wernicke's_encephalopathy) and probably also through direct effect on the brain. It can also cause a rare neurological disorder called Marchiafava-Bignami disease that results from damage to the brain tissue in certain areas.

Further more alcohol may cause hepatic damage that can cause alteration in consciousness and dementia.
