Women 50+ and High Rates of Alcohol Use Disorder

Here is a great article on alcohol use and women 50+. One side note in this article is the scale of marketing alcohol in our society. Recently I was listening to a podcast in the middle of the night when I couldn't get back to sleep and within 30 minutes I heard two ads by a company who delivers alcohol to your door within 60 minutes. Hump! I turn on the radio every morning and commonly I will have been directed to "drink beer outside", be a good Washington state citizen and buy Washington wines, or to attend a "think and drink" meeting about a current political topic. Very frustrating for someone trying to live a life without alcohol.
