Binge Drinking

Binge Drinking

Unfortunately, binge drinking is something that many post-secondary students take part in; on a night out to the bar, in a drinking game, and/or just drinking a lot of alcohol quickly to get drunk. Five or more drinks for males, four or more drinks for females in one occasion is considered Binge Drinking.

It takes more than an hour for your body to process one standard drink of alcohol. This rate is constant, no matter how much you drink. The only way to get sober is to stop drinking, and to wait.
