Female alcoholism

Unlike men, women are more stable psychologically, they have a stronger self-preservation instinct, so the number of the fairer sex in the total number of stable drinkers does not exceed 30%.

Nevertheless, a man goes from alcohol abuse to chronic alcoholism in 7-10 years, while a woman takes only 5 years to do this. Such a rapid course of the disease is explained by the peculiarity of metabolism – in the woman’s body there are much fewer enzymes that are responsible for the breakdown of ethanol. Because of this, the latter remains in the stomach longer, and the concentration of alcohol in the blood increases. As a result, its destructive effect on the body as a whole increases, which, with prolonged abuse, leads to serious disturbances in the central nervous system, liver and gastrointestinal tract.

The destructive effect of alcohol on the female body

Alcohol has an extremely negative effect on the reproductive function and the endocrine system of a woman:

  • synthesis of thyroid hormones decreases;
  • provokes abortion;
  • leads to mutations in the embryo:
  • decreased sex drive;
  • the risk of developing breast cancer increases.

In addition, the cardiovascular system suffers from alcohol and its metabolites, and with “beer alcoholism” cardiomyopathy develops.
