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.
When I was in my early 20s and younger we'd drink drink drink. Like every day. Vodka rum Brandi tequila anything we could get our hands on really. I've grown out of that and I'm happy that I did. It was no fun going to work at 4am hungover and then making food and taking orders. Every smell made you want to barf!
I'm getting too old to binge drink, but I still try occasionally. It used to be fun, but now it's more for compensating for life. It's not a good habit.
I think lots of people have went through phases of binge drinking.
I have and I know several people who have too.
i used to drink a lot when i first moved to alaska because i was so depressed and me and my husband were fighting so much and then i got pregnant my son is now 11 months and i still have not drank =]
I've been there, a couple years ago, when my hubby and I split up for a bit. I felt like I was meeting wrong people and wanted attention, so I went to drinking, more than I should and have done some bad things!

I think most people have done this at one point or another, It is common and can be really dangerous- my sons are 20 and 18 and I am more than aware of the dangers out there- drugs,drinking,violence etc. Scary - a lot can go wrong
binge drinking is like anything in life. an addict can move to a different addiction just as easily as they fell into the one that theyre in.
Of course binge drinking is terrible, but as someone who only recently graduated college, I understand.
You're young and you feel invincible, you have your first real taste of freedom, you're legally allowed to buy alcohol and sit at a bar and you're surrounded by a bunch of others in the same situation.
I think everyone ( or mostly everyone ) had a time in their life that was just a mess where they binge drank, experimented with drugs, slept around, etc... not really something to be proud of, but you live and learn.
All my sorority sisters binge drink. It's actually pretty bad, but we all just turned 21 and it's hard not to party all the time. We are trying to cut back!
Binge drinking is terrible. I understand people want to suppress their emotions and the pain they feel or worse, they want to be the cool cat at the party. But seriously, this is not the way. People that do should stop and save their kidneys and liver.
I used to be a bad binge drinker. I was sad on the inside, so I would binge drink a lot. I'm really glad I stopped doing that. It was making me sick.

I used to drink to get drunk. A lot of the time it was to forget my problems. Other times it was because I felt too introverted in social situations. Other times it was to join in with everyone else. I was lucky that I didn't die. I drank a lot at times.
A very bad thing binge drinking is seen many people do that and its not pretty at all. Not good for anyone involved.
Such a dangerous situation to binge drink, especially with younger people. If you do this, please be careful. Life is too short to put yourself in dangerous situations. Think of the ones who love you, if anything happened to you, it would break their heart forever.
When I drink, I have one or two. I have one ex friends that is drunk everyday except from 5:30 AM - 4:30 PM. The rest of the time he has a beer or a shot ready to take in his hand. Not friends with him anymore but that's fine by me. I'd rather not be around it.
Thaaaaaaat's me...when I drink I drink to get DRUNK, I don't want to remember or feel, I just want to go away- it's like my alternative to suicide
People drink to drown out their problems and they are only creating more problems for themselves.
