Hospitalization rates are higher in the West than the East (but nothing as high as up North). Edmonton statistically faring better than Calgary as well for this indicator.

Where is the data in your link stating that rates are rising among young women?

Data actually shows that Millennials are drinking far less than previous generations:

Apparently you need 2-3 of the following 11 symptoms before looking at help, although a lot of them ar eintertwined so once you get a couple I'm pretty sure you are there. not sure where that 5 drinks in a setting comes from but:

BBC Horizon did a documentary where a guy drank daily vs binge drank once a week. It's was fairly interesting and if I recall correctly the binge drinking was worse for your body than daily drinking.

Came back home, went to the gym 5 days straight and I feel great.
Those aren't withdrawals.

The article I posted up thread has all kinds of stats and tables.

Quote:
The biggest rise in drinking has been amongst women of childbearing years and of European descent, experts say. Countries that rank high on the United Nations index of emancipation have seen a rise in female drinkers in the past number of years (these include countries such as Norway).
Millennials may be drinking less, but women 28 to 40 are drinking more than in the past.

One difference in drinking patterns between Canada and the U.S. is alcohol use in the U.S. tends to drop off steeply post-college age. Drinking is very much tied to the college lifestyle. In Canada, women (and men) don't see such a steep decline in drinking in their 30s. Anecdotally, I know the people in our Houston office express astonishment at how boozy our corporate culture is here in Calgary.

Religion plays a part too - the U.S. has a lot of dry counties in the religious parts of the country. You don't see that in Canada.

Sorry, I shouldn't have said rising, there wasn't trends I could cite.
What I should say is that it was is very interesting findings that young girls are being hospitalized more frequently than boys in the 10-19 age group. Also overall support that strategies are needed to reduce harmful drinking practices in youth, as it is often tied to other high risk adverse events. Also note that the data for this is specific to alcohol hospitalization only, collected from hospital discharge data and Stats Canada voluntary surveys. We don't have a source to link all harm that is related to alcohol use (ie injuries sustained from impair driving)

Quote:
The most common diagnoses for hospitalizations entirely caused by alcohol for children and
youth age 10 to 19 were harmful alcohol use and alcohol intoxication (results not shown).
Girls age 10 to 19 are more frequently hospitalized for alcohol than boys in this age group;
this is the only period throughout the lifespan where hospitalizations entirely caused by
alcohol among females outnumber those among males

Get those women back in the kitchen and out of the bars!

Seriously though, as more women enter the workplace, you should expect more of them to drink socially. I don't really see a problem with it.

Makes sense to me, its been a decade now but girls would get loaded drinking 7% coolers vs 5% beers. They also seemed to be way more into doing shots.

Switch out drinking with youtube, Netflix, gaming, etc. and I would guess there would be at least 1 in 8 who would be judged to have issues.

It's really sad when the majority of the population think drinking insane amounts of alcohol is normal or needed to "have fun".

All my friends drank growing up and I still somehow found a way to not drink and still have fun with them. Maybe I'm just immune to peer pressure but I've always made decisons that benefited me and my health and not just drink because everyone else was.

It is sad the way kids grow up thinking they need to drink and then when they're adults there addicted to alcohol but pass it off as "a few beers a week". You have a problem, and it's not good for your health, stop making excuses.

In high school I dated a girl that was an aspiring actress, her big break was an AADAC commercial with the byline "You don't need to drink to have a good time".

In the ad, she is approached by a guy and she's chatting with him and smiling and laughing and a friend gives him a beer, and she looks at him like he farted in church and walked away.

We spent her check from that commercial on a nice dinner, then we bought a couple of cases of beer with my fake ID and went to Fish Creek park and got blasted.

Good Times.
