People on the spectrum of alcoholism may be more likely to be male than female.
It seems to be more common for women to drink, but it’s not a universal rule. The studies that support this association all have their limitations, but there are a few that have a stronger link between gender and alcoholism. One study that was published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine looked at the outcomes of patients who had a diagnosis of alcoholism and had a female patient as their control. Their findings were that women who drank were 40% less likely to drink or become dependent on alcohol.
Another study published in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology found that women who drank were less likely to develop an alcoholic personality disorder. These women were also less likely to experience depression or engage in risky behavior.
Women who drink are more likely to develop alcoholism, but that doesn’t mean that they have to. It’s pretty well known that women who drink are more likely to have depression, but the question of whether they even have the disease is a big question. So we can’t rule out the possibility that some women who drink are less likely to develop an alcoholic personality disorder.
In all of the above examples, the gender of the person who suffers from the disease is a big factor. However, women who drink are more than twice as likely to be diagnosed with an alcohol personality disorder as men who drink.
Yes, women who drink do have an alcohol personality disorder, but that is not because of their gender. In fact, women who drink are twice as likely to be diagnosed with depression as men who drink.
The difference between women who drink and men who drink is because women who drink tend to be more introverted, emotionally closed off, and withdrawn, whereas men who drink tend to be more socially-oriented. Women who drink tend to be more sensitive, more in touch with feelings, and more aware of the world around them than men who drink. Women who drink tend to be more sensitive to their bodies than men who drink.
Women who drink tend to be more socially-oriented, sensitive to their bodies, and more aware of their environment than men who drink. Men who drink tend to be more prone to depression and to engage in risky behaviors.
and the relationship between alcohol and depression, and between depression and suicide is a huge topic. Some believe that depression is a symptom or a side-effect of alcoholism, and some believe that alcohol is actually responsible for causing depression.
In a way, it is hard to tell what is causing what. It’s as important to figure out the causes as it is to figure out the effects. We can see how a person may feel a certain way depending on their environment, but we can’t actually see the actual causes of the emotional state.
