London, Nov 16 (ANI): Boozy Brit women are consuming more than a week’’s worth of alcohol units in just one night, according to a new research.

A British government has shown that one woman claims to have drunk 50 units in one night - the equivalent of seven bottles of wine.

And those who start drinking as young as 13 are more likely to become alcoholics, research also reveals.

The studys author, Valerie McMunn, said girls have a few drinks to boost their confidence on a night out but find it hard to stop.

There needs to be more awareness about the huge quantities being consumed by young women, the Daily Star quoted Valerie, as saying.

In a bid to reach the conclusion, the University of Manchester report studied more than 200 female patients at a sexual health clinic. (ANI)
