What is "binge drinking"?
 Binge drinking is a commonly used term without a specific meaning. It differs in its medical and social usage from drinking to drunkenness to the quick consumption of five or more drinks in one occasion. The size of drinks also varies from country to country.

Regarding the inappropriate consumption of alcohol, it may be useful to describe the harmful patterns of drinking as ‘drinking to drunkenness ‘ or going out with the intention of getting drunk’ as well as tracking the number of drinks consumed in a specific period of time and context.
The World Health Organization defines binge drinking as the consumption of six or more drinks during one occasion.
