Health Tip: Signs of Binge Drinking

-- Intoxicated people are prone to poor decision-making, loss of emotional control and accidents. When people habitually binge drink, serious problems often arise.

The American Addiction Centers mentions signs of binge drinking:

  • Drinking excessively on weekends or holidays.
  • Drinking more alcohol than originally intended.
  • Engaging in risky behavior while intoxicated.
  • Having memory lapses after drinking.
  • Missing obligations due to alcohol use.

If you or a loved one is affected by alcohol use, get professional help as soon as possible.
