Ms Withnall says females dealing with alcoholism require a long time of treatment and self-managed care and several women in the midlife period are pulled in many directions with an increase of family and work commitments. For those who have succeeded in abstaining from alcoholic beverages for more than five years, Ms Withnall says there exists a risk that they can not continue their treatment and succumb to alcoholic beverages when pressures become too great. Ms Withnall says it is very important for women in recovery from alcoholism to keep complete abstinence throughout this difficult amount of their lives.
