UK Is The Drunkest In The World According To New Survey

Post by Anthony's Weiner » Fri May 17, 2019 1:26 am

There are plenty of countries that would try to claim themselves as the drunkest in the world. But sadly, there can only be one winner (if you want to call serious alcoholism a win).

It seems as though the countries that make up the United Kingdom have collectively earned that titled, according to a new survey.

The research suggests people in the UK get drunk more than anywhere else in the world, with an average Brit getting tanked a little more than 51 times in a year - which is nearly every week.
It's not the most comprehensive study considering that only 36 countries were included so there could be a dark horse lying undiscovered. While the country list might be small, it's described as being the largest in the world.

Following Britain, America (50), Canada (48) and Australia (47) made the second, third and fourth spots respectively. Ireland and India were tied on 41 and the Danish scored well with 42.

Survey founder Professor Adam Winstock said: "We get told too much is bad, and it is, but current guidelines fail to accept the pleasure of intoxication and give a little guide on the difference between being a little drunk and a lot drunk, and doing it 3-4 times a year versus weekly. We need to have that conversation.

"In the UK we don't tend to do moderation, we end up getting drunk as the point of the evening.

"Until culture changes and we become more European and moderate in our drinking, we might have to bite the bullet and think about how to advise people to get drunk drinking less.

"Getting drunk carries risks of injury and health harm, but we need to start highlighting the risks at different levels of drinking even if they are above safe limits."

I am assuming they only polled those living in their home country,

It doesn't surprise me.

I think Korea could 'win'... except for the fact very few females there drink.
You could be next.

But Australia downed it quickest

Former Australian Prime Minister Bob Hawke was previously the world record holder for the fastest drinking of a yard of beer, when he downed a sconce pot in eleven seconds as part of a traditional Oxford college penalty. World record drinker and Australian PM. Good on you mate

Norway were asked to participate in the survey but were too pissed to respond.
