The aim of the research is to analyse the variation in aggression, depression and sense of self control males and females experience during and after a period of binge drinking. The research was conducted quantitative study and consisted of 121 questionnaires. The results of the analysis of descriptive statistics showed that males experience greater levels of aggression than females and that females experience greater levels of depression than males during a session of heavy binge drinking. It was also discovered that similar levels of self control were recorded between males and females. The original hypotheses were largely in agreement with the recorded results.
