One More Deadly Reason to Quit Drinking
A new study found that just one drink a day, of any kind of alcohol, can increase a woman’s risk of pancreatic cancer by 13%. Imagine what drinking more than that could do. Pancreatic cancer, by the way, is one of the worst. By the time someone goes to the doctor with symptoms it’s usually very advanced. Only one in five or six cases is operable. So the prognosis is not good.
The study also says it’s harder for women to quit drinking than men. I don’t know why that is, but they can get help through alcohol rehab – and may well need it even if the amount they drink is considered just ‘social’. The criteria is not how much they drink, but whether or not they can stop.
Alcohol rehab addresses all the issues behind not being able to quit. Physically, quitting drinking probably wouldn’t be much of a problem if you’re only drinking one drink a day. But emotional dependence on that one drink is another story.
A good alcohol rehab program would get down to the bottom of that dependence.
