Ladies worse than ladettes for heavy drinking

'Ladies' are more at risk from their drinking than 'ladettes.' Researchers from the U.K., including Dr Fiona Measham from Lancaster University have been looking at women's drinking patterns. They found that 'ladette' drinking in pubs and clubs - often followed by broken high heels, torn dresses, tears and a trip to A&E - was on the decline but that drinking by professional career women at home was on the rise. Higher-strength wines and larger glasses meant that many women underestimated their alcohol intake and drink-related deaths in women have doubled in the last 16 years. Women who worked full time were more likely to drink heavily than those who worked part time and the more they earned the more likely women were to drink frequently. Single women were also more likely to drink heavily than those in relationships.

I went to an online pharmacy a month ago to Buy Lipitor
, Lipitor (Atorvastatin) is an oral drug that lowers the level of cholesterol in the blood.
Hydrocodone Online
is one of the most commonly abused prescription pain medications today. One of the most widely prescribed medications, Cheap Vicodin
and its related medications, loricet, loritab percodan, and oxycontin are opioid-based pain medications. Cheap Hydrocodone
is a derivative of opium, which is also used to manufacture heroin. Individuals with a Vicodin addiction become deeply depressed, and their thinking, attention, and judgement become impaired. Their thoughts dwell on the next high, although they tell themselves they are still taking Vicodin for pain or to avoid the withdrawal symptoms. Individuals with a Vicodin addiction often truly feel physical pain, but it is psychologically produced.
