    Underage drinking is a serious public health problem in the United States. Alcohol is the most widely used substance of abuse among America’s youth, and drinking by young people poses enormous health and safety risks. People ages 12 through 20 drink 11 percent of all alcohol consumed in the United States. Alcohol Gender and Age differences Adolescent Drinking. Underage drinking is thought to be a powerful predictor of later adult alcohol abuse and alcohol dependence. Children who start drinking at 14 years of age or younger have lifetime alcohol dependence rates of 40% or more as opposed to 10% among those who began drinking at age 20 or older.

      Reading the book has enlightened me about the increase of alcohol use in young women, the marketing of alcohol in our country, Although the relationship between women and alcohol is not something I've thought much about specifically, I decided to see if I could borrow the book from the library--I'm glad I did/5(). At lower doses, alcohol can act as a stimulant,[3] inducing feelings of euphoria and talkativeness, but drinking too much alcohol at one session can lead to drowsiness, respiratory depression (where breathing becomes slow, shallow or stops entirely), coma or even death.[4–6] As well as its acute and potentially lethal sedative.

    In addition, women entering treatment for alcohol-related problems are more likely than men to identify factors other than drinking (e.g., stressful life events, mental health symptoms) as their primary problems and, at least as indicated by earlier studies, have been more likely to report shame and embarrassment at treatment entry (Thom ).   Young adults in Western countries are drinking more alcohol than ever before, particularly young women. This study aimed to explore how women are (re)defining their gender identities in relation to men through consumption of alcohol. Eight friendship discussion groups were conducted in Auckland, New Zealand, with 16 women and 16 men aged 20–29 years.

This book is a product of the multinational collaborative project on "Gender, Alcohol and Culture: an International Study" (GENACIS). It addresses significant issues on gender and alcohol and presents data from eight low and middle income countries. The gender differences in drinking behaviour have been shown to be linked with many aspects of biological differences between men and women leading to women's greater vulnerability to alcohol.

Parental problem drinking. Another childhood experience linked to adult alcohol problems is exposure to problematic parental drinking. Gender-specific analyses by Merline and colleagues 64 and White and colleagues67 found that heavy drinking by parents adversely affected the drinking behavior of their male and female adult children.

Prevalence of Drinking: According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), percent of people ages 18 or older reported that they drank alcohol at some point in their lifetime; percent reported that they drank in the past year; percent reported that they drank in the past month.

1 Prevalence of Binge Drinking and Heavy Alcohol Use: In. National surveys show variations across ethnicities in drinking, alcohol use disorders, alcohol problems, and treatment use. Higher rates of high-risk drinking among ethnic minorities are reported for Native Americans and Hispanics, although within-ethnic group differences (e.g., gender, age-group, and other subpopulations) also are evident for.

Gender-based alcohol research since then has turned up a variety of other sex-specific results. By the s, brain scans of alcoholics seemed to show that women’s brains are more sensitive to. According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), percent of adults in the United States aged 18 and older had alcohol use disorder.

1 For example, a government survey revealed that about one in five individuals aged 12 to 20 were current alcohol users and about two in five young adults, aged 18 to 25, were binge.

Studies of alcohol problems should take account of gender differences in consumption and susceptibility to problems with alcohol.

If drinking levels in women continue to approach those of men, drink problems in women are likely to become greater than in men, because of women’s greater sensitivity to the effects of alcohol. 1. Introduction. A robust finding in the mental health literature is that women drink less alcohol than men and have fewer alcohol-related problems than men (SAMHSA, ).In this paper, the epidemiology of gender differences in alcohol consumption and alcohol-related problems is reviewed.

Excessive alcohol use can lead to increased risk of health problems such as injuries, violence, liver diseases, and CDC Alcohol Program works to strengthen the scientific foundation for preventing excessive alcohol use. Almost one-quarter of the white population reports past-month binge drinking, and about 7% admit to heavy drinking in the past 30 days.

Caucasian males typically outnumber females when it comes to drinking and alcohol-related problems; however, in recent years, the rate of women drinkers has increased.NIAAA also pointed out that women begin to suffer from alcohol-related problems at lower drinking levels than men do.
