Military wives may be more likely to binge drink | MilitaryTimes

Military wives may be more likely to engage in binge drinking than other married women, according to a new government study.

About 32 percent of the military wives interviewed as part of a study by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration reported having at least four alcoholic drinks in one sitting at least once in the previous 30 days, meeting the SAMHSA criteria for binge drinking. That’s nine percentage points higher than the overall survey figure for married women.
