What is binge drinking?

A binge is a spree, or doing a lot of something at once. In 1994, Harvard University social psychologist Henry Wechsler defined binge drinking as the act of consuming large enough amounts of alcohol in a short enough period of time to put the drinker, as well as other people, at risk.

Binge drinkers often set put planning to get as drunk as possible as quickly as possible. Binge drinking is a growing problem, especially among young people.

It is a dangerous activity. Quickly drinking a lot of alcohol effectively poisons human body and regularly leads to drinkers dying.
Research has found that men who have five or more drinks in one sitting and women who have four or more drinks in one sitting at least once during a two-week period are much more likely to get into fights, drive while drunk, get into trouble with law, and vandalize property.
