Alcoholism is an equal-opportunity disease. Over five million American women are alcoholics. Could alcoholism be affecting you or a woman you care about it? This video explains some of the signs.
Any woman who consumes three drinks in one day, or seven drinks in a week, is at risk for becoming an alcoholic. Women tend to progress from problem drinking to alcoholism more quickly than men, and they are more likely to suffer adverse health effects. Mothers in particular are less likely to ask for help with their drinking problems than men.
