Even though I consider myself a pretty responsible person when it comes to drinking, I’ve overdone it a bit from time to time. I think, for the most part, we all have. And it turns out, in the United States, we do it more often than we should.

A recent study published by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) shows, on average, one in six American adults binge drinks at least four times per month. Those who do binge drink consume at least four drinks during a short period of time, up to eight as the highest average maximum.

That’s quite a bit of alcohol.

While I do enjoy a glass of wine or cocktail from time to time, and I think it’s okay for anyone to do so, it’s all about limits. Binge drinking is a serious concern that can lead to brain and body damage, accidents and regrettable text messages at three in the morning.

So before you order that fourth Cosmo or shot of Jack, take a couple of hours to relax. Dance a little, drink some water, go for a walk. Your life and car may end up thanking you.
