In addition to sharing that alcohol marketing targets women, Goodhart also noted that women’s biological makeup and hormones mean they’re “significantly” more susceptible to developing an alcohol use disorder at a faster rate than men.
“Between the pandemic and the pressures of daily life, we need to find realistic ways to cope and prioritize wellness.
