It sounds like fun!
Everyone wants to join in with what their friends are doing. It’s not like we are doing shots playing chess….it’s just a little beer pong.
It doesn’t matter what you choose to drink. What matters is how much you choose to drink.
Getting drunk too quickly can come with some extra risks. Taking part in a drinking game can lead you to drink too much too fast and you may end up with what you would call a “bad experience”. When you are consuming large amount of alcohol in a short period of time, it can actually be alcohol poisoning.
So, what really is binge drinking?
binge drink·ing (noun) the consumption of an excessive amount of alcohol in a short period of time.
Excessive Amounts = 4 standard drinks for women and 5 standard drinks for men (if you are transgender or transitioning, please ask your doctor about how much alcohol is right for you).
Short Period of Time = Under 2 hours
What is a standard drink?
Consider skip’n the game and enjoy the time with your friends. Keep track of how much alcohol you are consuming and give your body the time it needs to process the alcohol.
