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.

Unfortunately, I have worked with two women recently who caused some serious problems in their family due to binge drinking. What is even sadder is that neither recognize it as a serious problem.

This is so bad for your mental health as well as physical health in the mind and body. It is really sad when someone succumbs to being a binge drinker.

This is such a big thing in college and i have seen this happen due to managing a cafe where we had several college age girls working. Even had to go bail one out of jail

I think from high school, college and into your 20's this is more common than you think. Unfortunately some people don't grow out of it :(

i had a friend from college who began drinking in college. She would do binge drinking. She told me of a story of how she got so drunk that she had ended up in a strange house, woke up in the house, noticed that her blouse was buttoned up wrong and then quickly left. How bad is that!!!
And then i found out a few years back that she is an alcoholic.
She is trying to turn her life around. I have not heard from her in a long time. I think that i will try to contact her.

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'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.

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!
Tanya Phillip
I am glad to hear you are trying to cut back on your drinking, I would say it is hard to party all the time, it does take its toll on the body and pocket also. Best of luck.

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.
Leo MacDonald
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.

People drink to drown out their problems and they are only creating more problems for themselves.
