    In his early years

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural. Is it correct to use "ensuing" in my sentence?

    In his early years, John was affected by his father's long unemployment and ensuing alcoholism.

    Re: In his early years

    Yes, you're using it exactly right. You're on a verb binge, aren't you, Bassim?
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
