The Binge is Not Responsible Campaign
P.R.I.D.E. of Tuscaloosa created this media campaign to encourage people that participate in consumption of alcohol that binge drinking is not responsible drinking. In 2019, 29.6% of people 18 and older reported that they engaged in binge drinking in the past month. While drinking any amount of alcohol can carry certain risks, crossing the binge threshold increases the risk of acute harm, such as blackouts and overdoses. Binge drinking also increases the likelihood of unsafe sexual behavior and the risk of sexually transmitted infections and unintentional pregnancy. These risks are greater at higher peak levels of consumption. Because of the impairments it produces, binge drinking also increases the likelihood of a host of potentially deadly consequences, including falls, burns, drownings, and car crashes. P.R.I.D.E. of Tuscaloosa wants all to remember to Get Educated Not Addicted!
