Women alcoholics on the rise in Delhi, and across India, delhi news, Hindustan Times

Rukmini, who has been sober since May 1995, is one of the 30-35 women who are part of the all female Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) group, Shakti, in Delhi, and played a major role setting up the group.

Readers of Didion's recent memoir of grieving her daughter, Blue Nights, may be forgiven for remaining somewhat unclear, even upon finishing the book, as to what exactly killed Quintana Roo Dunne Michaels. Quintana, whom Didion often calls Q, was in 2005 a recently married New York-based photo editor in apparent good health. She fell into an extended illness and died at the age of 39. Some critics certainly seem to be a little less than clear on the events that took place. The Times Book Review wrote that Quintana fell ill "from a viral infection that had turned into pneumonia," before developing acute pancreatitis. The Daily wrote just that Quintana Roo was "struck by a series of...

Drinking, Depression and Their Dysfunctional Relationship, HuffPost

Alcohol is a depressant. This, we know. But the immediate effects of a few cocktails can feel far from depressing. And for someone who's already down and out, the mood-enhancing effects of alcohol can prove pretty tempting... hence the prevalence of booze as a form of self-medication.

Compounding this issue is the fact that binge drinking is, um, everywhere. Forty percent of college students report the behavior, and according to the CDC, one in six U.S. adults binge drinks about four times a month. The CDC's list of health issues associated with...

Americans are drinking more than they used to, a troubling trend with potentially dire implications for the country’s future health-care costs. The number of adults who binge drink at least once a week could be as high as 30 million, greater than the population of every state save California, according to a published Wednesday in JAMA Psychiatry. A similar number reported alcohol abuse or dependency. Between the genders, women showed the larger increase in alcohol abuse, according to the report. “This should be a big wake-up call,” says David Jernigan, director of the Center on Alcohol Marketing and Youth at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, who wasn...
