60 Minutes: The silent addiction killing a generation of Australian women #alcohol #addiction #counselling #therapy #stress #rehab

Some alarming facts in the article - read on. If this sounds like you or you know someone .... call 8448 1106 as help is available to address the why.

“I drank to relieve stress,” Cummins told Langdon.

“I was working in a career which was anxiety inducing… I came home drinking and found myself drinking multiple bottles of wine every night until that was just the norm for me.”

“[Alcohol is] accepted as a way to relax, as a way to unwind. We use it as a false reward – ‘I’ll just get through the day and then I’ll have a drink.’”

There are 15 deaths and 400 injuries each day related to alcohol use.

One of the leading causes of death amongst middle-aged women, suicide, has been increasingly linked to alcohol consumption.

“Women in their 30s and 40s that are drinking too much alcohol look fabulous, do a terrific job,” Withnall said.

“But inside, if you ask them, they're dead. They've used all of their energy in doing and fixing and being perfect.

“We need society looking at the way to self-care without introducing a mind-altering drug.”
