Recent studies are showing that women on the average start drinking later in life and at a lesser pace but that doesn’t stop the fact that the damage to a woman’s brain isn’t more significant.

“Women typically start drinking later in life, consume less … and one could reason that women are less affected by alcohol,” said lead study author Karl Mann. “But there is evidence for a faster progress of the events leading to dependence among female alcoholics and an earlier onset of adverse consequences of alcoholism. This suggests that women may be more vulnerable to chronic alcohol consumption.”

Alcohol addiction is something that we can fight together. It takes some education and help from drug treatment centers to overcome this very powerful and real addiction.
