Alcohol-abusing women attempt suicide four times more often than nonalcoholic women (15). Among adults with alcohol use disorders, the suicide rate in women equals that in men; however, women attempt suicide more often than men. Anorexia and bulimia are also more prevalent in alcohol-abusing women (15% to 32%)--significantly higher than the prevalence in the general population (anorexia, 1.5%; bulimia, 7%) (16)."
I wonder if one is at higher risk for abusing alcohol because of the eating disorder, of at higher risk of developing an eating disorder because of alcohol abuse? Same question with depression. (Heh, the ever-lasting chicken or the egg question) I guess ultimately it doesn't matter, does it?
My real question is what are you experiences/relationships with alcohol and your eating disorder?
