Stop Binge Drinking
Do you think you can have fun without binge drinking? How about just a nice glass of wine with your dinner? Are you satisfied with that one glass or do you want the whole bottle or more?
What exactly determines binge drinking? Lets take a look at a couple of videos and get the facts and terms of Binge Drinking and then go from there.
If you have watched the two videos you may have learned something regarding binge drinking and what classifies the term. I know I learned something I never knew, which was five (5) drinks in a two hour period for men and four (4) drinks in a two hour period for women. I know I didn't fit in that category at five (5) drinks per two hours, more like five (5) per hour. I'm not very of proud of that for sure, and very surprised of the facts and many others may be also.
As the Doctor explained, if you are on your way out to party hardy, eat something that contains fat in it, such as cheese or a hand full of olives which will help metabolize the alcohol at a slower and more controlled rate.
Drinking water or gatorade in between drinking alcoholic beverages will put back the good fluids in your body and also will slow up the process of dehydration.
There is nothing at all wrong with having a few social drinks with family and friends, but we must drink responsibly and not over due it to the point of being out right drunk. Everyone knows what the consequences will be the next morning or in fact what might happen that evening after a night of binge drinking.
So, go out and have fun, but stop binge drinking and just drink responsiblly. Doing so will save many things that may have gone wrong after a night of binge drinking and just may save your life or an innocent persons life as well.
Better to be Safe than Sorry! DON'T EVER DRINK AND DRIVE!
