Binge drinking refers to drinking to get drink. It’s defined as drinking lots of alcohol in a short period of time. When drinking, self-control is the key in order to avoid making risky decisions when we think we are not vulnerable. 

Binge drinking is serious. Because you don't drink everyday you do not realize that you have a problem with alcohol and binge drinkers actually do more damage to their liver then alcoholics who drink every day. It took me losing part of my liver to finally face my binge drinking

I don't know how people do binge drinking. There were a few rare occasions when I had too much and was pretty sick the next day - and that wasn't even remotely close to the amount a binge drinker would ingest.

i never drank before because im only 19 but then the week after my sister passed i drank every single day. i have it under control now though

I guess I am a binge drinker for Starbucks.. I love my coffee, hot or iced, teas I love too, love the refreshers.. Love frapp , a big binge drinker of gree teas ;)

Are binge drinkers alcoholics? Alcoholics also drink lots of alcohol so is there a difference just because binge drinkers may drink faster? I wonder.

Binge drinking is so dangerous but so common, especially on college campuses. It didn't take long after I started drinking until every time I drank was a binge. I'm both surprised and extremely lucky that nothing horrible happened to me. Than again, I am a bona fide alcoholic, so I don't imbibe alcohol anymore... it's so much easier for me that way.

Not for me at all. I don't like feeling drunk. I sometimes like to have 1 or 2 drinks. I'm a light weight anyway, so it doesn't take much. Sometimes I start feeling light headed after one tiny glass of wine. I just don't understand where the fun is in getting legless and acting the fool!

it is pretty rare for me to drink at all, on christmas i did have some eggnog that was more than just eggnog but that was the first time i had a drink in almost five years.

II very rarely drink at all any more and I am so glad, I used to get so drunk and be so ill in the morning and I know it was not doing my insides any good.

That is exactly the point, when you binge drink you are not in control because it hits you before you realize it.

Everyone who drinks must learn how to control themselves. Not only are they only prone to making themselves looking like a fool in public. They may also cause trouble for others.

It is a problem in my country, too. I am seeing 13-14 year old kids in the city weekday afternoon being totally drank. It is really bad for health, and I also don't know why it is fun for people to drink so mich and not remember anything that happened that night, and repeat it the next day...

i use to binge drink alot when i was younger. i didnt even realize i was until i was trashed. now i set a limit on how much i drink if i even drink at all

I set a limit too. I mostly drink at home. I limit myself to a glass of wine. I may have a beer at my parents' house or two or three beers at an all day party.

binge drinking of alcohol is very bad for our health if we maintain this habit. it can destroy our organs especially our liver.

A lot of young people especially students in my city binge drink on weekends, they are unaware of the dangers of it and just think that it is normal

There was a time early this year where I was very depressed and I tried to drink together with our co-workers. I never expected they would suggest binge.

I used to do this but it became a problem. Now I only have a few beers about once a month, if that. It's not worth the trouble.

I binge drank in my younger years on the week ends. Once I got pregnant with my first. I stopped drinking all together.

I used to binge drink so very much and I would get so drunk that I would pass out and this happened on a sometimes daily basis.

Oh binge drinking. Definitely not good for you. I no longer do this but in college it was pretty much the norm.
