Prevention of Alcohol Use Among Women within 25-40

Binge drinking is attributable to social, psychological, environmental, and genetic factors. For instance, individuals who start consuming alcohol during the early stages of life find it hard to quit in later stages. Crook and the University of Nebraska at Omaha (2020) noted that other significant contributors to alcohol use are sociocultural factors, anxiety, and depression. Women, for instance, consume alcohol to overcome the overwhelming emotions associated with traumatic experiences such as a family breakup, domestic violence, and the death of a spouse. The probability of using alcohol is also higher among those with alcohol-using partners and friends. The media portrays alcohol consumption as glamorous, attracting many women to this harmful behavior.
