Binge drinking is when you drink a lot of alcohol in one session. For men, it means drinking more than six drinks in one sitting; for women, it means drinking more than four drinks in one sitting.
People who binge drink:
- don't necessarily drink every day
- may not know their own limits
- may not mean to drink a lot
- might feel peer pressured to drink large amounts
- might feel awkward in social situations if they aren't drinking.
