Harvard Health Reports 41% Rise in Alcoholism in Women amid Pandemic
Did the pandemic cause you to drink more or less? According to a study by Harvard Health 14% of adults said they had increased the number of times they were heavy drinking (where you have 4 or more drinks on one occasion). In particular, there was a 41% increase among adult women.
Experts are warning that they have seen a gradual month-on-month increase in these numbers. However, because women metabolize alcohol differently to men it affects them more strongly and could lead to more serious health conditions in the long term.
