Yes, someone can be a binge alcoholic. Binge drinking refers to the consumption of a large amount of alcohol in a short period of time, typically resulting in a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or higher. Binge drinking can lead to numerous negative consequences, including alcohol poisoning, accidents, injuries, and risky behaviors. While some people may engage in binge drinking occasionally without developing a dependence on alcohol, others may find that their binge drinking leads to more frequent or heavy drinking, and eventually to alcoholism or alcohol use disorder (AUD).
