The phrase went from the people. Indeed, female alcoholism is a rather difficult situation, will confuse anyone. The longer the period of use, the more the situation will get out of control. One power of will cannot be done here, a full range of measures will be required, and a relapse is quite For men it is a little different, it happens that they quit for 10 years, and more, for various reasons.
Strictly speaking - true! But not because it is female alcoholism that is not treated, but because, in principle, alcoholism cannot be cured.
Alcoholism is a chronic disease, which means that it is impossible to cure a person so that he, for example, learns to drink in moderation.
If we talk about female alcoholism, then due to the physiological and psychological characteristics of women, it is indeed more difficult for women to rehabilitate, but this is in my experience of working in the narcological field. Difficult, but possible! I personally know women with alcohol addiction, now living a sober, normal life, socially successful.
The origin of the phrase is folk.
it is not true, everything is individually, she was in small towns and deserts, there women are strong and physically from large work and maral-so they do not drink so quickly, and if they become alcoholics, they are also easily cured by the boy's vaz from non-drinking parents and physical weak and a girl and take a strong woman and a guy - about one result
Where this phrase came from, I can't say, maybe it was invented by those who were never able to defeat their addiction. But I know for sure that it takes a lot of strength, patience and support from relatives to recover from alcoholism. Now there are a lot of medical centers where this disease is treated, you can even call a narcologist at home and it will be completely anonymous, they even give a guarantee for treatment. And whoever says that it cannot be treated, simply does not want to be treated or is weak in spirit, in this I see the only explanation.
It is not true, everything is treated - both female alcoholism and male alcoholism. It is hard, of course, in treatment, addiction is still, but if a person has strong willpower, he will go to his goal no matter what and heal.
Female alcoholism is definitely treated, moreover, if we are talking about drug methods, then it is similar to male alcoholism. Here it is rather a question of a hotter censure from society, which forces women to hide the problem up to a certain point. Actually, narcologists are talking about the same thing (all the specificity, it seems, is only in more comfortable conditions for keeping patients).
My friend drank every day for 2 years, with or without reason, she was a kind of party girl, had the role of "call and I'll come with a bottle." Having met her husband, she left. He hasn't been drinking for a year and a half, even on holidays.
Some familiar men have been drinking (drinking, getting drunk, drinking, throwing a couple, etc.) for a long time, and continue to this day, denying the fact of alcoholism / drunkenness even when indicating a bad habit, censure, shame, multiple breakdowns because of the bottle.
A person can do anything if he wants.
From practice I can add that the death from chronic alcohol intoxication in women occurs earlier than in men. Moreover, if men often already have pronounced alcoholic cirrhosis of the liver, then in women death can occur against the background of alcoholic fatty degeneration of the liver, when cirrhosis is still far away (and the liver is in the small pelvis, as we like to joke).
I will answer about the origin.
The full phrase is as follows - "Female alcoholism is incurable, and male alcoholism is inevitable." famous personalities were not behind it.
Answering the question briefly - it's not true.
Alcoholism is a serious illness with a low frequency of remissions and with rather brutal consequences for the body.
All this complicates the situation of Russian narcology, which goes its own way way, far from world practice. In the treatment of alcoholism, sometimes unproven, senseless and ineffective methods are still used ...
Having worked for about 10 years in a hospital, I have not found a truthful basis for claiming that female alcoholism is incurable.
In my opinion, this is due to a not very correct interpretation of statistical data.
All chemical addictions, including alcoholism, are considered more destructive for women than for men. There are a number of reasons for this. Firstly, women have less muscle mass - accordingly, intoxication sets in faster. This is facilitated by less water in the female body. The hormonal features of the female body determine the increased absorption of ethanol. Lower doses are needed to achieve the relaxation effect. Thus, dependence is formed faster, the risk of its development is higher even with the use of small doses. Nevertheless. female alcoholism is curable as well as male alcoholism - it is a matter of adequate, timely and correct treatment.
