mentions binge drinking studies that define consumption of 5 "standard drinks" as a binge (which appears
to be another term for "units"). It confusingly earlier defines a binge as being 8 units for men, and 6 for women.
Five units? That's two pints of 4.4% beer. That's not a binge, that's a pub lunch.
Is that a problem with my attitude toward alcohol, or unrealistic definitions from the studies? I get increasingly skeptical about proposals to crack down on "binge drinking" when the definition
is so far from my expectations. I'm all for measures to reduce the frequency and effect of aggressive drunkeness, but not if those implementing them think that having a couple of pints is a problem.
