It's not a measure of how drunk you are.

Just cause you like drawing imaginary lines and wearing red while riding moose doesn't mean that you're not practically American anyway.

We absolutely must get to the bottom of this!

I'm a drug and alcohol counselor and I can tell you that from a science/policy standpoint there's a difference between "about 3-4 drinks and feeling buzzed" and "5 or more drinks to intoxication". There's some wiggle room but it's around that. If you don't get drunk on 5 drinks because your tolerance is too high, well that's another sign of alcoholism.

EDIT: I'm not saying that difference defines binge drinking, we don't really use cheap terms like that in diagnostic work because of the misleading connotations.

Basically it's a measure of drinking with the goal of getting drunk. There's not an agreed on number worldwide.

Yeah, and of course what you're drinking matters too. two shots of whiskey and a squirt of lime is obviously more alcoholic than a small glass of (most) wine.

I'm not an alcoholic, but I definitely wouldn't get drunk on 5 drinks :captainshrug:

When I drink it's to get drunk, and I stopped drinking with any frequency once I got to school so I guess technically I do. I'll go weeks to months without drinking and then I'll do somewhere between 10-20 shots of whatever and get way too far gone.



I don't do it very often at all, so I'm not TOO worried about it.

I can count the number of times I've had more than five drinks on one hand and still have fingers left. And I can drink five drinks and not get tipsy.

I'm also very skinny.

Always exceptions.

I used to a lot at uni. Then after some tests for a completely unrelated issue it turned out that I had liver damage. Reversible, if I cut down on alcohol and other shit, but still liver damage. It doesn't just happen to 40-year-old alcoholics.

I did it a lot last year, and earlier this summer. I've slowed down a lot since then.

Yeah I guess? Once every two weeks on average. I get drunk pretty quickly though so I definitely don't drink more than 4 or 5 drinks.

Nope, I'm really not a heavy drinker and don't drink with the intention of getting drunk.
