Oz is the drunkest country

‘Risky levels’: Australia is the drunkest country in the world, survey finds

:fdfd: :cheers:

While French drank most times a week, Australians got drunk an average of 27 times a year, almost double the global average


Australians have been named the heaviest drinkers in the world after spending more time drunk in 2020 than any other nation.

An international survey has found Australians drank to the point of drunkenness an average of 27 times a year, almost double the global average of 15. Almost a quarter of Australians reported feeling regret for becoming intoxicated.

The Global Drug Survey asked more than 32,000 people from 22 countries what their drug and alcohol consumption was last year.

On average, Australians drank alcohol in line with the global average of two nights a week, and became heavily drunk about once every two weeks. The French topped that metric, drinking around three times a week.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

Meritocracy: the privilege, wealth and advancement of those who chose their parents wisely.
Capitalism: a cult that promised to do good for the worst reasons.
Nationalism: a profound longing to go back to a past that never existed.

Only drink 2 times a week? What do they do the other 6 days?
