Women Dying From Alcoholism

Why women are dying from alcoholism

A study by ONS suggests a rise in the number of women dying from alcoholism.  Despite a downward overall trend in the number of alcohol-related deaths in England and Scotland, the number of deaths among women born in the 1970s has “disproportionately increased” since the mid-2000s, the study found.

The number of women dying from alcoholism increased in 2017 by 1.2%.

One of the suggestions for the finding mainly is that this is an outlet for stress. A lot of women are talking about having ‘me time’. Women are working, they’re taking care of children, they’re exhausted and they need some outlet. So having a few glasses of wine does it for them.

Having a career may encourage women to drink more in another way, too. Managing a job can be stressful, but the environment may also give women more possibilities to drink: at client dinners, networking happy hours, celebratory gatherings, and other get-togethers.

Another factor is that brands have noticed that more women are interested in relaxing over a glass of wine and are targeting them more aggressively as possible customers, according to a  Public Health Institute and Institute of Alcohol Studies report. The findings list specific strategies alcohol companies have used, such as developing new products which will appeal particularly to women
