Is Wine Becoming the #1 Source of Escape for American Moms? – American Addiction Centers
Excessive alcohol consumption is dangerous for anyone, but women feel alcohol’s effects faster than men. Statistics show more mothers are turning to wine as a way to cope with the daily pressures of motherhood, risking alcohol abuse and harmful medical conditions.

More mothers are turning to wine as a way to escape the stresses of everyday life and/or cope with the pressures of motherhood. An article “The Rising Rate of Moms Who Drink,” published on AmericanAddictionCenters.com, highlights the growing number of American mothers who imbibe—many of whom celebrate and share in their choice to drink via Facebook groups, like ‘Moms Who Need Wine.’ The article notes, “More women are drinking now than at any time in recent history.”
A related article, “What Is the Impact of Alcohol Addiction On Women?” delves further into the topic and describes the impact of excessive drinking on women and expectant mothers. “Drinking more than seven alcoholic beverages a week can be considered risky for ladies and may make them more inclined to develop liver cancer, heart disease, breast cancer or dependency on alcohol.”
Kayla Little, RD, LD, CpT and Wellness Director at FitRx says, “Aside from the behavioral health issues associated with turning to alcohol as a stress reducer, excess alcohol intake is damaging to the liver and kidneys, and means empty calories that contribute to excess body weight and increased food cravings. Alcohol is also dehydrating, especially if incorporated into everyday living—and don’t forget about the wine headaches the next day.”
