Daily alcohol intake can lead to binge drinking

Montreal, May 28, 2009 Sipping wine, beer or spirits three to four times per week increases the risk of binge drinking, particularly among young men, according to a new study published in the journal Addiction. Researchers from the Universit de Montral and the University of Western Ontario analyzed the drinking habits of Canadians and found that frequent alcohol consumption can lead to binge drinking among all gender and all age groups.

The study also found that infrequent drinkers rarely exceed two servings when they do consume alcoholic beverages. "The relationship between drinking frequency and consumption per occasion might be both cultural and biological," says study coauthor Andre Demers, a Universit de Montral sociology professor and director of the Research Group on the Social Aspects of Health and Prevention. "The Canadian drinking culture has a 'time-out' depiction of drinking. Alcohol is a boundary mark between week and weekend, work and leisure, and therefore between routine and time off."

The investigation established one drink as 5 oz. of wine, 1.5 oz. of liquor, 12 oz. of beer or cooler, 3 oz of port, sherry or vermouth. Regardless of drinking preferences, the study found that many Canadians consume alcoholic beverages on a daily basis to experience its mood-altering affects.

Drinking for a festive feeling

"Regular drinking builds up tolerance, therefore daily drinkers will need more than their usual drink or two to make a difference with everyday life and gain that festive feeling," says lead author Catherine Paradis, a Universit de Montral PhD candidate. "That fosters drinking beyond healthy limits at least sporadically and perhaps weekly to five drinks or more per occasion. And five units is above the recommended limits of healthy drinking."
