Frequent and excessive drinking build a high level of tolerance which can lead to binge drinking. Binge drinking is where an individual drinks at least five rounds of alcohol within two hours. It has become a popular practice in recent times. However, binge drinking regularly can lead to alcohol use disorder and significant health and safety risks. A heavy drinking binge may even lead to life-threatening situations such as falling into a coma or even death. People who binge drink often develop a tolerance to alcohol, so each time they will need to drink more to feel its effect. When a heavy drinker goes through a long period without drinking alcohol, it can lead to withdrawal symptoms. Alcohol withdrawal usually occurs after heavy and prolonged alcohol use is completely stopped or reduced. Signs and symptoms of alcohol withdrawal include anxiety, depression, restlessness and agitation, problems sleeping, hallucinations, sweating, rapid heartbeat, shaking, and even seizures.

Depending on the severity of the dependency, withdrawal symptoms can occur within several hours up to four days later.
