What is Alcohol Abuse

What is Alcohol Abuse?

An individual leading to alcohol abuse first begins in the “binge drinking” stage.  It’s simply drinking to get drunk. It is the most common drinking problem for young people, under age 21. Men commonly consume 5 or more drinks, while women consume 4 or more.

Binge drinking turns into alcohol abuse when someone's drinking begins to cause problems and the drinking continues anyway. Alcohol abuse is when someone continues to drink in spite of continued social, interpersonal or legal difficulties. Alcohol abuse can result in missing time at school or work, neglecting child or household responsibilities or trouble with the law.
