Is Binge Drinking Relevant Outside Of College?


If you are young and a binge drinker, it might be a good idea for you to stop. This kind of drinking is a common problem among young people. It involves taking more than five drinks within two hours for men and four drinks for women. Taking moderate alcohol is ok, but many people abuse alcohol. In this article, you will learn why this kind of drinking is not suitable for a young person

1) Leads To Brain Disorder

Alcohol drinking can cause slurred speech, blurred vision, impaired memory, slower reaction times, and loss of balance. Some of these short-term effects can disappear as soon as the individual stops drinking. However, prolonged abuse of alcohol can cause chronic brain disorders that are serious and incapacitating.

There are many resources online where you can learn about binge drinking, how to diagnose an alcohol problem, among other things. Such articles are more informative from experts. You can also learn more about how and where to get help if you have a drinking problem.

2) Causes injury

Taking alcohol slows reaction time and affects judgment and coordination. When drunk, you are more likely to get into a motor vehicle accident, fall, burns, drowning, or firearm injuries.

3) Causes Health Problems

Scientific research shows that heavy drinking has adverse effects on your health. Most of your body systems can be negatively affected by alcohol. As a binge drinker, you face a greater risk of having metabolic syndrome, high chances of suffering heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. Alcohol abuse shows to contribute significantly to the following health conditions:

  •         Brain damage
  •         Liver disease
  •         Heartbeat issues,
  •         Cancer diseases such as neck cancer, colon cancer, liver cancer, and breast cancer
  •         Depression
  •         Sleep disorders

Furthermore, drinking a lot can make it hard to manage other health problems such as high blood pressure and diabetes.

4) Decision Making

If you start this kind of drinking at an early age, your decision-making capacity can be affected. As a fact, research shows that a young binge drinker has a similar decision-making problem as alcohol addict people. However, if you stop being a binge drinker, there is a high chance that decision-making skills can be restored.

5) Attention And Memory

Young binge drinkers have been found to have issues with attention and memory. Scientific research shows that excess alcohol drinking among youths is linked with reducing some parts of the brain that play a role in things like attention, memory, language, consciousness, and awareness. So, reduce your drinking, and you will find that it will be easy for you to complete a task more efficiently and pay more attention.

6) Poor Quality Of Life

Taking excess alcohol can affect your professional, financial, and emotional well-being. On the other hand, alcohol abuse can lead to psychiatric problems like anxiety, depression, and antisocial personality disorder

These are some of the effects of alcohol abuse and binging on drinks. If you are a binge drinker and do not know how to stop, consider getting professional help.
