WHAT IS RISKY DRINKING?
Many health risks, including alcohol dependency, are associated with drinking in excess or binge drinking. Today, the generally accepted definition of binge drinking in America is:
Women: Drinking 4 or more drinks in a row—at least once in the previous 2 weeks.
Men: Consuming 5 or more drinks in a row—at least once in the previous 2 weeks.
Heavy binge drinking includes three or more such episodes in 2 weeks.
