In general, women can turn to drink for a lot of the reasons men do. But women can also be under different stresses to men and drinking can get out of hand for reasons including:
On average, it takes less amount of time for a woman to become intoxicated. It also takes smaller quantities of alcohol for a woman to feel the rewarding and relaxing effects of consumption. This is due to the female stature and its biological makeup.
Blood alcohol concentrate at higher levels in women, and we carry alcohol around the body for a longer period. As alcohol is commonly harder to metabolise for women, alcohol affects us at a quicker rate and addiction risks are greater.
Overall, alcohol is a damaging, addictive, and toxic substance, which can fuel a wealth of negative habits for a user. Seeking help at a women’s rehab is often essential to get over this particular illness if alcohol addiction has taken a strong hold of your body.
Women have a different tolerance to alcohol compared to men. Women process alcohol through their body less quickly than men and have a smaller Body Mass Index.
Often a women’s partner is addicted to alcohol, this highly increase the chances of you also developing an alcohol addiction. If this couple are drinking regularly, the women can develop a serious illness before the man, due to how a women’s body is slower to metabolize the alcohol in your system.
Women statistically start drinking from a younger age then men. This can start with nights out at the local night club to nights in with girlfriends. This habit can also continue alone or be accompanied through drinking partners.
Whilst alcoholism is an unbiased condition that can impact any given person, there are gender specific risks and effects due to these biological differences between men and women.
Women with alcohol addictions may have encountered early physical and psychological impacts that have contributed to the addiction.
When a woman is addicted to alcohol the risk of of developing breast cancer, liver disease, fertility issues, and pregnancy complications are highly increased.
Alcohol addiction in women can also be linked to mental health issues and the alcohol certainly does not help. Due to the interaction between alcohol and the central nervous system, risks of depression, anxiety and bipolar are greater in women when compared against men.
