Binging.: Drinking any more than 2 drinks at a sitting is considered binging, and can do damage in the long run. While 1-2 servings (a serving is 4 oz. wine or 12 oz. beer or 0.5 oz. hard liquor = 0.4 oz alcohol) daily is modestly protective, binging (drinking more than 2 drinks at a time) has never been shown to be beneficial, and is probably harmful.

Is drinking 12 units of alcohol in one night ONCE per week worse than drinking 12 units of alcohol over the ONE week? If so why as its the same amount

If I drink 10 units of alcohol in 1 night once per week or once every 2 weeks, am I likely to damage my liver fast?
No, but other harm:: Exceeding 3-4 units daily can lead to liver disease. 1 unit=10 ml of pure alcohol = 25 ml of 40% whisky = 8 oz of beer( 0.4 pints uk). So it's not likely that you would damage your liver BUT it's more than likely that you will become intoxicated, suffer poor judgement and accidents, and hurt your relationship with significant others if they are around you.
