The term binge drinking has been increasingly used by the scientific community to measure the excessive drinking and by the media to describe the youth drinking and an alleged increasing propensity of young people towards drunkenness. However, statistics show discrepancies and raise questions which the authors tried to respond through a qualitative mixed-method research based on 134 interviews and a web forum aimed at young people (aged 15-24 years). The results show that in the category of binge drinking includes very different consumption patterns not necessarily intoxication-oriented, and that it is not correct to speak of "normalization" of excessive drinking as a negative conception of drunkenness persists among young people.
