Women, Life Events and Drinking Problems

  • Carole A. Allan (a1) and D. J. Cooke (a2)

Extract

Do women drink excessively for the same reasons as men? A growing body of opinion suggests not. Beckman's (1975) views are representative— “Alcoholism and heavy drinking in women appear more likely to be linked to psychological stress and a specific precipitating circumstance or situation than is alcoholism or heavy drinking in men”.
