Stop Binge Drinking for Good

Source : andlun1

Binge drinking is bad for your well-being because it promotes dangerous and irresponsible behaviour but is also bad for your immediate and long term health.

So basically binge drinking is bad for your health as well as your safety and over a period of time can result in death.

Before going on a binge drinking spree beware of the consequences of drinking too much, especially the consequences on your health and safety. By remaining aware of the consequences you may be deterred from binge drinking.

Also consider the effects such as hangovers, nausea, shaking, vomiting, memory loss, injury to yourself and alcohol poisoning before binge drinking. It can also result in weight gain over a period of time and high blood pressure.

Often alcohol is used to overcome stress, but it only makes the problem worse because of the depression you feel once you are no longer intoxicated and the problem is still there. Some people drink to feel cooler or fit in better and if this is the case come to terms with what causes you to feel insecure.

Learn what a standard drink is and stick to the government’s recommended daily standard drink. This will allow you to remain within the limits of the law.

Drink more slowly and sip your drinks rather than downing it. Also consider alternating one alcoholic drink with one non-alcoholic one and keep track of how much alcohol you’re consuming. Set yourself a limit at the beginning of the night and stick to it.

Most importantly drink responsibly and organise a safe way home before you even begin drinking. Stick to these rules and a fun night out need not turn into a tragedy.
