How often do you drink? Well, according to UPI,

Researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital and Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) examined the brains 60 people who had recovered from histories of long-term alcoholism, and 60 nonalcoholics. They found evidence that alcoholism can impact the reward system centers of the brain in women differently than it does in men. They specifically found alcoholic women had larger reward system structures in the brain compared to nonalcoholic women, and that those same structures were smaller in alcoholic men than in nonalcoholic men. Researcher Gordon Harris says, “Our findings suggest that it might be helpful to consider gender-specific approaches to treatment for alcoholism.”
