Consistent and excessive alcohol consumption typically builds a high level of tolerance, which usually results in binge drinking. Binge drinking is where an individual drinks a minimum of five rounds of alcohol within two hours. It has become a common practice, particularly in social circles. This can lead to serious consequences and can ultimately lead to alcohol addiction. Heavy binges can also lead to immediate consequences such as drunk driving, falling into a coma, or alcohol poisoning that could lead to death. Individuals that binge alcohol regularly require large volumes of alcohol to feel its effect because of their high tolerance. Long periods without drinking usually lead to withdrawal symptoms for individuals who binge drink often. Symptoms and signs of alcohol withdrawal include stress and anxiety, clinical depression, restlessness and agitation, sleeping problems, hallucinations, sweating, rapid heart rate, trembling, and seizures. These symptoms can easily become a deterrent to daily functioning. Depending upon the extent of the reliance, withdrawal symptoms can happen as soon as a couple of hours and as much as four days later.
