How much do you know about women and alcohol?

Categories: Addiction, Alcohol, Substance Abuse, Women's Issues

What do you know about women and alcohol? Women get drunk faster and suffer greater health consequences than their male counterparts. Women also face greater stigma than men when they drink, especially when they have children. If you are a regular reader of this blog, you have read about the differences the effects of alcohol have on men and women, both physically and mentally.

About.com: Alcoholism & Substance Abuse, which this blog refers to from time to time, offers a Women and Alcohol email course. The 9-day course explores how drinking alcohol affects women, the social and health risks of drinking, and the consequences of excessive drinking for women of all ages. After signing up for the course, you will get an email every day for 9 days that explores various topics dealing with women and alcohol. It’s worth a look.
