A few quick facts

Binge drinking

Binge drinking can lead to difficulty concentrating, problems with memory, mood changes, and alcohol poisoning.

Alcohol poisoning

Alcohol poisoning affects the body’s involuntary reflexes – including breathing and the gag reflex, as well as the bloodstream. If the gag reflex isn’t working right, a person can choke to death on his or her own vomit.
