Alcohol and the modern world (INFOGRAPHIC)

Drinking becomes a problem when you drink regularly and chronically. But problem drinking differs by gender.  What’s the difference? We review here. And then we outline the harms, dangers, and statistics related to alcohol abuse…both in the U.S. and internationally.  You’ll find alcohol abuse statistics related to:

  • Alcohol abuse
  • Binge drinking
  • Harm caused by problem drinking
  • Morbidity

Our goal is to inform and to change behavior. So, please do not hesitate to leave your questions or comments about worldwide alcohol use here. We will try to respond personally and promptly!

Hello Donna. There are probably some unresolved psycho-emotional issues underlying your drinking. Have you tried talking with a licensed psychotherapist about what you’re going through?
