Binge Drinking Essay Research Paper My report

Binge Drinking Essay, Research Paper

My report is on the disease binge drinking. Binge drinking is a dangerous drinking

problem that many people have. A binge is defined as five or more alcoholic drinks in

one sitting for a man, and four for a woman. Binge drinking is extremely common among

American high school and college students. In fact, one-third of high school and college

students admit to a binge in the last 30 days. I think that this high rate is reasonable since

drinking is still seen as a popular activity in many colleges as seen in the horrible accidents

in the newspaper or on television. On television shows and in movies binge drinking is

rarely shown as a dangerous and horrible thing. Alcohol is more commonly shown with

friends, beauty, and enjoyment. I researched a survey which said that children who are

surveyed recognize the Budweiser frog slogan as often as they do “Bugs Bunny’s.”

Many people today have this problem of abusing alcohol; many of them being

teenagers. Someone can develop this problem by starting a habit of drinking or

alcoholism. One drink a night can lead to two. Two drinks a night can lead to three.

Three drinks a night can lead to a serious binge drinking problem. The only real way to

transmit this disease is through genes. Scientists have known that alcohol problems can be

hereditary. The baby of this mother may have an initial craving for alcohol and may feel ill

without alcohol in its system. That is why drinking when you are pregnant can be a very

dangerous thing. Binge drinking will definitely cause the person to feel without control

over his or her body. They will be very dizzy and crazy. This can be dangerous for the

drinker and dangerous for the people around him or her. This is why drinking and driving

can be so perilous. Some people have been killed because of a heavy drinker while the

drinker walks away unharmed. The effects of binge drinking are that as you get more and

more obsessed with alcohol, there can be many more long term effects. Your body can

only drink so much alcohol. Over time your liver becomes damaged by torn tissue and

maybe some other problems. This is called cerocious. Binge drinking can also lead to

poverty and a loss of job.

The only way to prevent binge drinking is by not abusing alcohol and drinking too

much. To prevent binge drinking completely you must simply not drink alcoholic

beverages. If you do drink every once and a while, you will be fine. As long as you keep

your alcohol consumption pretty low, you won’t get liver disease. The only treatment for

this problem is to get help on how to stop drinking.(and stop drinking) After you do this it

may be very easy to get addicted to alcohol again so you should probably stop altogether.

If you do get a liver disease from drinking, the only way to cure it would be surgery with a

replacement liver which may be hard to find.

I think that parents should to start sending the message about alcohol abuse early

to their kids, and make sure that their children get the message. They must not just say

that “It’s bad to drink” but make sure the kids have an example so they don’t do it either.

Parents can control their kids decisions. Therefore, it is the parents choice if the kid will

drink alcoholic beverages. I believe that we should have more help-lines or websites to

help people with this problem. We need to start teaching people about the hazards of

binge drinking when they’re children, and they need to hear the message frequently. Binge

drinking is a horrible disease that can change a person’s whole life in one night. If people

do something to help people stop bingeing it can make a difference in our families’ lives.
