Last evening, I attended this year ‘Get Your Sexy Back’ (GYSB) with group of friends at Beer Market Clarke Quay. It was a superior entertaining night with friends watching live comedian performing on stage. Those performances were Jonathan Atherton and Kavin Jay and of course, my favourite local stand-up comedian Hossan Leong was there too! Their joke are Awesome and memorable!

GYSB – Get Your Sexy Back 2013 encourage youth to drink responsible. As part of this year’s campaign, APBS also conducted a GYSB survey to find out about young people’s alcohol consumption habits. Over 200 consumers between the ages of 18 and 34 years were surveyed in December 2012, which revealed that close to 40% of the participants classified as binge drinkers.

Contrary to public belief and the general association of binge drinking with youth between 18 to 24 years old, the survey revealed that those between 25 to 34 years old are more likely to binge drink, while a larger portion of women are engaging in binge drinking at an earlier age.

The Health Promotion Board (HPB) of Singapore classifies binge drinking as heavy drinking over a short period of time, which is defined as the consumption of five or more alcoholic drinks for males, or four or more alcoholic drinks for females.
