Binge drinking hits the headlines a lot, but it’s not a clearly defined term, and you won’t find it in much of the research which looks at the effects of one-off episodes of heavy drinking. However, it’s a phrase that’s stuck, and most of us have a sense of what it is.  Despite the lack of proper definition it appears regularly in the media, but also in policy documents, which perhaps is more surprising.

Thanks to Tony Husband, fabulous creator of Yobs and Yobettes in Private Eye, for allowing me to use this cartoon, which I think sums up the confusion beautifully.
