Binge drinking is the most common and costly alcohol problem in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Binge drinking is defined as a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.08 percent or above, or 0.08 grams of alcohol per 100 grams of blood—that’s usually five or more drinks for men and four or more drinks for women in about two hours. Statistics show it is most common among the 18-34 age group, but crosses all ages.
