1 doctor agrees

In brief: Once can kill

Severe binge drinking can kill.
Alcohol toxicity can cause a person to stop breathing, aspiration of vomit into lungs. Not commom but can happen. . With that said many persons especially with alcohol problems have been drunk hundreds of times and are not dead. Lucky yes but not dead, other ways to die drunk, accidents, especially motor vehicle while intoxicated.
