Thousands more teenage girls hospitalised by binge-drinking than boys - Telegraph

Thousands more teenage girls hospitalised by binge-drinking than boys - Telegraph | PR Events | Scoop.it

Please see my comment below analysing this article.

 

"Thousands more teenage girls than boys are ending up in hospital because of
binge-drinking, Government ministers have revealed, as they work on new
plans to tackle cheap alcohol.

Meena Jasim's curator insight, May 3, 2014 7:04 AM

This article discusses the figures from the Department of Health which shows that there has been 2,400 more girls being hospitalised from binge drinking since the beginning of 2010. 

 

I was surprised to see that the article didn't give a reason for why the number of girls being hospitalised from binge drinking has risen, but as i was taught in class alcohol naturally effects girls more because they have a higher body fat percentage than boys meaning that girl absorb alcohol more. I believe that recently because of more peer pressure, girls have been pressured to drink more, and because girls are effected by alcohol more because of the body fat percentage, therefore giving the reason why girls have been hospitilised recently more than boys. I don't think girls are drinking more then what boys are but because of the natural fact of body fat, girls are effected by alcohol more.

 

The article also discusses that increasing the price of alcohol might solve the problem. There are different perspectives on this in the article, some thinking it will work, others think it won't and some think that it will just ruin some families financially. i think that it is unfair to punish the whole community including responsible alcohol drinker because of irresponsible teenagers. In class we discussed the long side effects of alcohol including financial problems which can be a big issue in todays society. I don't think increasing the price of alcohol will do any good to solving the teenage drinking problem as I don't think any price tag will stop them from buying a very addictive drug.

 

This article brings up some great issues about teenage drinking with quite a bit of things related to our work on alcohol in class. I have learnt quite a bit through this article.

Pot-smoking moms tired of being judged by drunk moms

Pot-smoking moms tired of being judged by drunk moms | PR Events | Scoop.it

Via NBC Today:

 

Every night, Margaret’s two boys fly into the house after sports practice and flip on the TV, while she races to the kitchen to get dinner cooking. “It’s that tedious witching hour when I feel incredibly frazzled,” says the Tennessee singer/songwriter mom of a 6- and an 8-year-old. But instead of pouring herself a glass or two of merlot, she heads to the standalone garage next to their house for a few puffs of Humboldt Kush, one of the four strains of pot she smokes seven days a week.

 

The drug helps her keep focus on the giant statue of popsicle sticks she’s building with her kids and relaxes her so she can get through the rest of the night without stressing. “It can make folding a pile of laundry fun,” says Margaret, 45, who asked that we not use her last name for fear of getting in trouble with the law. “If I didn’t smoke, that’d be three piles later in the week.”

 

“Being judged for doing something nontoxic and totally organic, enjoying a god-given plant, by moms who suck back two bottles of Chardonnay like sports drinks feels like s---,” complains Margaret. “Any hypocrisy is hard to swallow. A drunk mother is pathetic and I often leave parties when I experience other mothers tying one on.”


Margaret isn’t the only pot-smoking mom tired of being judged by moms who religiously drink glasses of wine or “mommy juice.” Recently, one mom stirred up some controversy when she admitted to parenting while stoned in an essay on Jezebel.com. Today, the group Moms for Marijuana International has more than 18,000 likes on Facebook...
