British are World Champs on Getting Wasted: Global Drug Survey

If you have something so weird, strange or off-topic to post and think it doesn't belong in any other forum; you're probably right. Please put all your gormless, half-baked, inane, glaikit ideas in here. This might also be a place where we throw threads that appear elsewhere that don't belong ANYWHERE end up, instead of having to flush them. FORUM RULES STILL APPLY.

British are World Champs on Getting Wasted: Global Drug Survey

This one's for Jamie. :beer2:

Britons get drunk more often than 35 other nations, survey finds
Meanwhile, cocaine use among people in England tops the same global list
15 May 2019
Drinkers in the UK get drunk more than any other nation in the world, findings from a global survey suggest.

Britons reported getting drunk an average of 51.1 times in a 12-month period – almost once a week – the report featuring 36 countries found.

On average, respondents said they got drunk 33 times in the last year. This number was 50 times in the US and 48 times in Canada. The rate was much lower in countries such as Chile, where they got drunk 16 times a year.

The Global Drug Survey, of more than 120,000 substance-users worldwide, also found that England has the highest rate of people having tried cocaine in the world.

English-speaking countries lead the way for how often their citizens get drunk, with the US, Canada and Australia closely following the UK at the top of the global rankings.

Who decides on whether they are 'drunk' or not? If it is the survey respondent the survey data is heavily flawed.

It will be a hard job for us Brits to keep up with some of our Khmer friends.

Maybe the drunkest, and happening to probably be the funniest too.
Makes sense i guess.
How do UK ranks in terms of depression ?
I could see a correlation there.
Cheers Brits, don't glass around too much though.
Nevermind, i'm not here anyway.
