Alcohol and Us

Didn't we just learn that 1 in 8 Americans has an alcohol problem? I was talking to Darwin about that and I was saying that in the last several years, I'd noticed the emphasis our society puts on women and alcohol. Women getting hammered in groups. Women having rowdy, alcohol-soaked gal parties. Women gulping down huge drinks after work with their gal pals, deliberately setting out to get drunk and shouting "Woooo! I need this!" Was it just me noticing this? Apparently not.

1 American in 8, everyone. 1 in 8.
