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.
