"Binge use was defined as consuming five or more drinks on the same occasion at least once in the last 30 days."

Go ahead and put me on the list.

WOW.....

According to those stats ,,,I believe I might qualify for some type of All Star Binge Drinking team!!!!!!!!!!

Hope Binge drinking makes it to the Olympics....I've always wanted to represent my country at something....As a matter of fact I dont think I would have any trouble putting together a whole team to represent the USA from just my neighborhood and direct family members.....

hahaha, i never drink unless i have at least 5.....those pussies conducting that poll need to work on raising their tolerances.

i got into a little legal trouble in my college days (alcohol related) and i had to be evaluated by a drug and alcohol counselor. so let me give you a little advice, when they ask you, "do you ever have periods of blackouts or do you sometimes forget parts of a night while drinking??" MAKE SURE YOU SAY NO NO NO NO NO!!! thinking that memory loss from drinking was somewhat common, i answered yes, and it cost me an extra few months of counseling. apparently, if you have blackouts or memory loss, the "professionals" claim that is a major indication of alcohol abuse.

I'm in my 50s and find that I'm beginning to have some trouble putting away 5 drinks at one sitting - I have to get up to pee after the 3rd or 4th!!!

Binge drinking, according to the 2003 National Survey on Drug Use and Health is what we call having a few cocktails in the evening. On weekends we have the blackout and memory loss thing going but there is always someone there to remind you the next day of what you did. Then it all comes back to us and we remember so I don't think that is a problem. So whats their point? ;?

Another cool thing is that if everybody experiences a blackout you can tell the same jokes again!
