For decades men were considered America's heaviest drinkers, smokers and drug users. Now, according to a new report by the Center for Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University, women are catching up to men. JOSEPH CALIFANO/NATL CTR. ON ADDICTION AND SUBSTANCE ABUSE: WOMEN HAVE BECOME INCREASINGLY LIKELY TO USE SUBSTANCES AT THE SAME RATE AS MEN--AND GIRLS ARE STARTING TO SMOKE, DRINK AND USE DRUGS AT YOUNGER AGES THAN EVER BEFORE."
They are also becoming addicted quicker. Because of the differences in their body structures and metabolisms women get drunk with less alcohol...and become "hooked" on substances much more quickly....and are therefore more likely to develop serious health problems --earlier. CALIFANO: WOMEN WHO SMOKE, ABUSE ALCOHOL AND USE ILLEGAL DRUGS LIKE MEN WILL DIE LIKE MEN WHO SMOKE, ABUSE ALCOHOL AND USE ILLEGAL DRUGS FROM CANCERS,
HEART DISEASE AND AIDS----ONLY SOONER.


Among the report's other findings:
-women are at risk of liver sclerosis when having less than 2-drinks a day....as opposed to 6-for men.
-female alcoholics are twice as likely to die as male alcoholics
-teenage girls who drink and smoke or take drugs are more likely to have unprotected sex.
-one out of every 2 female smokers will die of a tobacco-related
disease
Researchers say there are also differences in the symptoms suffered by women addicted to alcohol, tobacco and drugs.
Whereas men are more likely to be arrested for drunken driving-- or be unable to perform at work, women are more likely to be depressed or anxious... symptoms that can and are easily overlooked.

The Center's solution is a two-pronged attack.
-a major abuse prevention campaign catered to women
-training for doctors....so that they notice sometimes subtle signs of substance abuse in women.
The center would also like to see a de-emphasis of thinness in our society...often times women will not quit smoking or using drugs because they are afraid of gaining weight.
