Like men, amongst women too, alcoholism is a disease that cuts across all socio-economic barriers.
But the most difficult aspect of dealing with women alcoholics is their extreme denial of the fact that they are alcoholics and that they have a problem. On the surface, their lives appear to be fine. But privately things may be out of control- failed relationships and problems with children are a few repercussions. It is this denial that prevents them from seeing how alcohol can negatively impact their lives.
