- Women are physically more susceptible than men to the effects of alcohol because of comparably lower body mass, higher fat content and hormonal differences.
- Alcohol impairs your judgment and lowers your inhibitions. These effects can lead women to put themselves in socially inappropriate or even dangerous situations. Long-term alcoholism can also result in irreparable physical damage.
- A counsellor, psychologist or therapist can assist alcoholic women to develop healthier alternative behaviours to drinking, and provide support on the road to sobriety.
