Binge drinking in layman terms, is a term given to someone who drinks occasionally, but when they do, they go on a 3 day bender. Or it can also mean just a nights drinking, but again when they do a nights drinking, they hit it really hard, after which they do not drink again for a week or two. And then they hit it hard again. This is know as binge drinking. So too summarise, binge drinking is where a person will drink a large amount of alcohol is a short amount to time. This happens in one night out. Then they will leave drinking for a while.

The effects can be dangerous, as it is not something the person does on a regular basis. Hence every time a person binge drinks, it is shocking their body. Their hangovers will be much worse. Also they will feel dreadful the morning after. On the other hand. They will not have cravings like you would find with an alcoholic. Like anything in life. Do it in moderation.
