From a chronic risky alcohol consumption is spoken, if a man per day and drinking at least four standard glasses, or a woman at least two glasses. The Definition is based on a recommendation of the world health organization (WHO).

If less people drink daily, to be consumed on certain occasions, larger quantities of alcohol, especially by teenagers and young adults. The proportion of those drinking at least once per month to intoxication, increased from 11 percent in 2007 to 16 percent in 2017.
