Alcoholism & Addiction

  • Why Are Professional Women Drinking So Much?

    Professional women in Britain, are drinking to dangerous levels, according to a recent OECD report, claiming one in five women drinks “hazardously”.  Hazardously is described as consuming over twice the safe limit of 14 units of alcohol.

    The OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) report, published at the end of the last year, describes this rise as “the dark side equality”.  Women are drinking more to fit in at work, to keep up with a traditionally male drinking culture.
