    binge drinking does more harm to your body than drinking the same amount over a reasonable period....

    So what you are saying is : "Is it ok to damage yourself in oder to socailise with people of the opposite sex?"

    Read that through....
    Do you really need one of us to tell you the answer?

    Do you think that not drinking will lead to you being asked to leave the socail group? I personally can not see that EVER happening....
    But maybe my friends are more reasonable than yours

    nothing wrong with binge drinking, its by far the most fun way to enjoy alcohol:D :D

    its quite funny that somebody called cokephreak is preaching about what harm an alcohol binge does to your body :confused::p

    ive never actually heard cokephreak say anything about how wonderful coke is at all. and if he did im sure he wouldnt say it was a particularly healthy and harmless thing to do.

    Wrong.

    "Binge drinking at a young age increases the risk of heart attack. There (has also) been a dramatic increase in liver disease in people in their twenties, and liver transplants at such a young age aren't unheard of now."

    yeah binge drinkings bad for you and all that, but its what every one does. go out at the weekend and have a few drinks.
    i'm sure people would be a lot more worried about somebody "at a young age" who was drinking a couple of pints a night through the week rather than if they just went out and got lashed at the weekend with everyone else.

    believe it or not...i usualy have a few pints a night at home. two three.
    sometimes i get a bit pissed. i dont get pissed to the point i cant stand up. not often anyway.
    two or three pints of beer a night is quite healthy. get pissed at the weekend doesn't upset your system to much then. alcohol is a problem if;..............
    it becomes more important than your friends. your bills. your family. your food bill. your rent payment. your gas bill. etc.
    if any of those things are being put to one side so you can get pissed, then your drinking has become a problem. short term or long...the drink is taking first place.
