Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

yes i agree,  Contrary to common myth, not even men and women of the same height and weight experience the same effects from consuming identical amounts of alcoholWomen are affected by alcohol more rapidly because they tend to have a higher proportion of body fat than men. Women appear to be more vulnerable than men to many adverse consequences of alcohol use. Women achieve higher concentrations of alcohol in the blood and become more impaired than men after drinking equivalent amounts of alcohol. Research also suggests that women are more susceptible than men to alcohol-related organ damage and to trauma resulting from traffic crashes and interpersonal violence

Women absorb and metabolize alcohol differently than men. In general, women have less body water than men of similar body weight, so that women achieve higher concentrations of alcohol in the blood after drinking equivalent amounts of alcohol. In addition, women appear to eliminate alcohol from the blood faster than men. This finding may be explained by women's higher liver volume per unit lean body mass, because alcohol is metabolized almost entirely in the liver.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
