Danger to Others

With clouded judgment, you are a danger to everyone around you, not just yourself. The increased risks of accidental injuries are much higher when you are in a state of extreme intoxication. Your inhibitions can lower to the point that you may commit crimes and hurt innocent people as a result. You may even act, say and do harmful things that you would never think to do in your healthy state of mind.

Social Dangers of Binge Drinking

Excessive drinking can lead to extreme social and mental disorders. When you become socially impaired, you will no longer be interested in the things and the situations that once brought you joy and happiness. Reduction in school, work or recreation attendance may follow and performance might weaken and lower.

Isolation and separation are also some of the social dangers of binge drinking. Extreme drinking may change you to the point where the only thing that makes you happy is binging.

Financial Dangers of Binge Drinking

Binge drinking is an expensive practice. There is the cost of the alcohol itself, and the lowered inhibitions that come with binge drinking can cause you to exceed your budget when you cannot afford to.
Additionally, binge drinking also costs the state and the country. With an increase in the level of accidents and crime, it costs the state in terms of health care, repairing and loss in productivity.

Emotional Dangers of Binge Drinking

Some people use binge drinking as a crutch or as a way to cope with a stressful situation or a negative life event. By using binge drinking as a form therapy, you are not really dealing with the issues behind your behavior. Instead, you are just covering it up like a bandage. Binge drinking can certainly cause emotional damage and can lead to harsher side effects. Feelings of depression and low self-esteem and feeling of worthlessness are some of the emotional dangers of binge drinking.
