Female Alcoholic


When we juxtapose the words “woman” and “alcoholic”, many readers are surprised. However, the plight of American female alcoholics (about one million) is increasing in intensity. But the statistics are inexact because it is estimated that there are nine covert alcoholics for every one under treatment. Woman drink to help themselves to cope with life’s vicissitudes. They drink because of financial pressures, incompatibility, frustration, and related reasons.

  • juxtapose – place or deal with close together for contrasting effect.
  • plight – a dangerous, difficult, or otherwise unfortunate situation.
  • intensity- the measurable amount of a property, such as force, brightness, or a magnetic field.
  • covert- tersembunyi
  • vicissitude – a change of circumstances or fortune, typically one that is unwelcome or unpleasant.
