The ‘Why’ and ‘How’ of Pacing
Lots of things affect the pace at which we drink, like our drinking culture and the extent to which we buy in ‘rounds’, the people we are drinking with, whether we are drinking when eating, our mood and various other factors.
We have all probably heard of ‘binge’ drinking, but what is a binge?
The World Health Organisation has defined binge drinking as drinking six or more standard drinks (about 3 pints of beer) during one drinking occasion. However some researchers have argued against this definition. As this level of consumption could occur over the course of an evening of eating and socialising they argue it is inappropriate to equate it with a binge.
Whatever the definition, new research suggests that drinking to drunkenness and repeatedly subjecting the brain to the effects of withdrawal from the presence of large doses of alcohol i.e. having what people would term drinking ‘binges’, could damage brain cells even more than continuous drinking.
