Smoking is a predominantly female disease, and advanced societies will pay dearly for daring to tobacco companies, which have submitted the cigarette during the past decades as a symbol of female emancipation.
One-third of teens today will die of snuff, like one in two regular smokers, one relevant to humans, because the toxicity of cigarette no gender difference situation. There are four reasons for these moments in a woman is beating man in the harmful smoking: advertising, depression, stress and fear of being overweight. In industrialized countries, women now in their 40s tend to leave the snuff less than boys, and girls are initiated into the habit earlier than boys. The problem lies latent female smoking, and that toxicity takes 20 years turn up. In a few years the snuff is the leading cause of death among women in our society, as seen in other countries where women stood before the snuff. Alcohol, snuff and psychotropics, drugs of the Spanish are still less them, but that hook have begun before consuming, are more addicted, request fewer treatments are physically vulnerable and suffer more. The drug dependence has been considered until now as an exclusively male social and health problem . Only in recent years, due in part to the findings of several studies that have demonstrated both an increase in the number of women who consume addictive substances and consequences of women’s addiction, political, health, and the specialists who treat and investigate the drugs, they have decided to find out why, how and when women and prevention and treatment that they need to take drugs. The alcohol, snuff and psychotropic drugs are still drugs preferred consumption between Spanish and how also is producing an increase in the poly (snuff and alcohol or psychotropic cannabis and alcohol, to name two examples). Although most of the respondents admitted taking drugs for pleasure or for fun, the conference attendees agree that a number of new factors that affect exclusively to females, and are closely related to the initiation of use of substances. These include new roles, the existence of social security contributions and the fact that women now share the same public places as men. Although these conditions are affecting new drug, new jobs on women’s addiction also reveal that sexual abuse in childhood, parents have drug addicts, personal relationships, lack of self-esteem and be dissatisfied with it are some of the clear risk factors for women developing dependencies. That women take addictive substances and that some of them do abusively is not new. The use of alcohol and benzodiazepines (tranquilizers) in females is a fact that has been known for some time. Just remember, for example, in Spain the optalidón addicted to many who are now grandmothers, or the image of so many women who have lived or live in silence, and secretly attached to the bottle. What is new is now start consuming at younger ages, who have lost respect for experimenting with new substances and an increasing number of which are hooked. In fact, in recent years has increased the proportion of females incarcerated for problems drug-related. Although in general terms it can be said that drug use is more common among men than women, legal factors, cultural, educational and geographic factors affect an increasing prevalence of drug use by the women. Gender variations are more pronounced where heavy legal penalties, including schoolchildren and in rural areas there. The differences are less evident where there is widespread acceptance of drug use, as usually occurs with cannabis. Factors causing new addictions The incorporation of women into the workplace, his new role and the struggle for equality seem to be behind the first use of many of these women. The private space (before women consumed at home) has begun to be replaced by the public where man, gradually stopped penalizing women who drink or smoke.
