    No, not sarcastic at all. Binge drinking is a wonderful thing. It's a sociable, enriching activity that brings people together and encourages the making of friends and the pursuit of mirth and merriment. Yes, it's bad if you do it every night, yes, it's bad if you do it on your own in front of an Eamon Holmes quiz show, yes, it's bad if you commit a crime afterwards. However, a large proportion and perhaps over of people over the age of 16 or so get intoxicated on a fairly regular basis without doing any real damage to themselves or others. I'd far rather live a life in which I went out and got very drunk regularly with close friends, having a great time, and died at 60, than a life in which I nursed my herbal tea and read Winnie the Pooh looking for political analogies, or something, and died at 90.
    Binge drinking is also the cause or serosis,death,crime,ill health in general...
    You can be sociable without having to get plastered,its a fake way of trying to be confident,in my opinion those that need a drink to bring out their fun side,are infact the boring or insecure ones...
    Binge drinking is bad in anyway,its not just drinkin normally when you're out with friends,its when you drink to excess and to the point where you could kill yourself.Theres a difference between being sociable and binging.

    Plus,just because some people dont drink,it doesnt mean they sit around drinking 'herbal tea' and are unsociable.

    if you need a drink to be able to socialise and have fun then it just shows the ones who lack something within their personality which doesnt allow them to do these things whilst sober

    I enjoy a beer or four, and getting properly drunk occasionally, but I dislike the amount that some people seem to need to rely on alcohol to have fun, especially at university. I seem to encounter drunk people on an almost daily basis, and the majority are boorish loud degenerates, who literally have nothing else to do in their lives except waste their student loans on 'getting rat-arsed', followed by half-hearted attempts to 'chat up' ****gy looking and equally drunk girls within a 10m perimeter, later found sitting on kerbs at 2am either eating kebabs or vomiting, occasionally both at the same time. In my experience, alcohol seems to bring out the **** in most people.

    drinking alcohol and getting drunk? what about it is fun, what in particular? I have never been drunk so I couldn't say but I will do at some stage soon but it does kind of scare me the thought of heading out somewhere at insane hours and not knowing what it will be like, how I behave or where I end up.
    Of course it's fun, otherwise so many people wouldn't do it.

    That's called drinking too much, you don't HAVE to drink too much.
