Happy Hours
Happy Hours: Alcohol in a Woman's Life | Devon Jersild
1 post | 1 to read
Did You Know Female alcoholics are twice as likely to die as male alcoholics in the same age group Women metabolize alcohol differently from men, more quickly developing such physical complications as liver disease, high blood pressure, and hepatitis. A female alcoholic is more likely to suffer from depression, anxiety, and eating disorders, which may not go away even if she stops drinking. An astonishing four million women in the U.S. meet the diagnostic criteria for abuse or dependence. When a woman drinks, she is five times more likely to be raped. These are just a few of the alarming facts you will learn from this book -- facts every woman needs to know. Mixing cutting-edge research with affecting stories of women who struggle with alcohol problems, Happy Hours challenges our assumptions and expands our awareness of the role alcohol plays in women's lives.

Cinfhen Obviously I have NO IDEA, (once again) what you‘re talking about 😉 1mo
TrishB It‘s always been a bit weird! 1mo
squirrelbrain Yes, I wasn‘t sure about including Hull @LeeRHarry @TrishB @arlenefinnigan but it is definitely classed as Yorkshire so I just went with it... 1mo
arlenefinnigan @squirrelbrain is Humberside like Merseyside and Greater Manchester in that it's an administrative county but not a 'real' county? 1mo
LeeRHarry Not a real one but a fake one for about 20 years - I was born in Grimsby, in Lincs when I was born, then Humberside and back to Lincs 😊 @squirrelbrain (edited) 1mo
arlenefinnigan @LeeRHarry yeah it doesn't help that my geography is terrible and I confuse Grimsby and Hull.... 1mo
