About 1 in 6 adults in the United States binge drink four times a month.1 That is a large percentage of the population, drinking far more than they should in a short amount of time. Also, because drinking is often a social event, many people struggle to draw the line between a wild night out and a serious problem. Over 90% of adults in the United States who drink excessively have also reported binge drinking in the last month. So, it is not unusual for binge drinkers to turn into alcoholics.
