Adult Drinking Facts

“Heavy drinking (defined as having more than 2 drinks per day for males and more than one drink per day for females) is a pattern of excessive alcohol consumption that can lead to alcohol-related chronic disease and death. According to the latest estimates from the CDC, numerous chronic disease conditions (e.g., alcoholic liver disease, alcohol dependence syndrome) and a significant proportion of many other conditions (e.g., unspecified liver cirrhosis, pancreatitis) are alcohol related. For each of these causes, it is chronic heavy drinking (as opposed to acute episodic or binge drinking) that is considered primarily responsible for the incidence and progression of alcohol-related chronic disease.”
