The level of alcohol consumption in women was also found to be beyond the limits. They consumed an average of five drinks over the same period.

The survey results hardly have any effect upon the drinkers. Nearly 80 percent of them did not believe that they indulged in binge drinking during, especially during the holiday period. This defense is despite the finding that, when 1000 drinkers were surveyed, about 20 per cent were found to have gone through the 'passed out' phase as a result of drinking.
