Women and Drinking

I saw a review of this book in the Washington Post and read the sample on Kindle:
I don't think I'll buy the book, still on the fence but it covered interesting thoughts. It's about the increase in drinking among women, especially middle aged, middle class and above, highly educated moms. That's my demographic and I really think it's true. You all know I'm not anti-alcohol but at what point do you start worrying about yourself, or a friend?
I'm bringing this up because I come across a lot of excess drinking among the suburban mom group, although I tend to avoid gatherings like that. Moms acting wild and still thnking their sorority girls, not my thing. I put my line, though, at drinking because it's fun and drinking because you REALLY need it. Ha, maybe that's why I don't drink much--when I have fun, it's stuff like aerial silks, parkour, skiing, all of which would be really bad w/ drinking! I hate bunco and that type of thing.
